    Well thats pretty darn competitive!. Obviously I will wait for this to be out for a good few months and gauge opinion before I jump on the bandwagon and until then the kemper will be leading my main GAS. BUT....if this is as convincing if not better somehow than both the Axe and the Kemper for alot less, then Im onboard 100%.

    About time they waded into this battle and good for them for atleast being brave enough to try. :shred:
    one thing I will say is its certainly aesthetically pleasing. Looks so elegant, modern and stylish. Amazingly attractive.
    Wonder what Rack versions will look like :eek: I bet Glorious, especially paired with the Korg Pitchblack Pro tuner haha.

    EDIT, Just found the Rack version. Wow

    Damn, considering the rise in the price of this if you compare to pod HD, I hope this will be a serious improvement! It seems like all their new products in recent years have been improved in functionality and looks, but not really in the sound. Let's hope that they were saving it for this one!

    Would be cool if this would have an option to import IR's...

    Custom IRs are a must to really have this take off, compete, rival and maybe better the Axe!.

    If this has Custom IR loading (and blending a couple at once too) then Im IN!!!!

    that's what I'm most interested in seeing as well.
    i know one of the most common complaints was the inability
    to use custom irs

    Just read over at another forum:

    It loads IRs, has a separate cab block, and can load multiple IRs for just one amp (or maybe just dual...I know it can have more than one).

    They would announce this the day I decided on my future rig...

    Looks like they put a power switch on the back this time around. Nice.

    Agree about this, I still prefer on paper the "unlimited amp" options of the Kemper and its exchange instead of using the limited models that ship on the device and wait for an update/pack to add more. But If the ones that come on the device are insanely amazing, then I suppose I should quit whining like a bitch and buy one!!!........... :shred:
