Roland CUBE-20X worth it?

Greetings everyone!

The good thing is that Im going to get a Yamaha Pacifica 112J this weekend(probably ).

And the bad thing is that Roland Cube-15X is no more in production. The salesman offered me Roland CUBE-20X for 190 euros. Is it worth the price? I can also order from that shop :
Laney PRISM20 (130EU)
Laney LX20D (135EU)
Laney LR35 Linebacker (165EU)
Laney LX35D (185EU)
Fender Frontman 15G (110EU)

OR should I go for Roland CUBE-20X and not think about it anymore?
P.S.
For Amp my price range is around 160 - 170 EU but I can invest more if it's worth it.
Here's the shop's site : http://muzikavisiems.lt/16-kubai-elektrinms-gitaroms
It's in lithuanian but for price comparison 3.4528 LT = 1EU
Thanks a big for those who will help me out!

For low priced bedroom amps, the Roland Cube has probably the best reputation. I'd definitely say it's a better alternative than what you'd get in Fender, Marshall, or Line 6.

I don't know, it's borderline. You really had to get up into the 12" speaker cubes before they started sounding alright. I can't remember if the 20x has the COSM system, but if it doesn't, I'd pass.

On the page you linked, the Orange Crush CR35 is probably you best bet in your price range, which google tells me that at 590 Lt, is 170 Euro.

Whenever I hear someone say that they play exclusively a single genre, I always assume that they're just a terrible guitarist.

It does have The COSM system. There's lots of FX and it says so on the label. And about the Orange CR35LDX it's just not appealing to my eye. I don't like the looks of it.

I do understand what you guys want to say but how I'm going to play if I can't stand the looks of it? It just looks ugly to me. Atleast for now. So yeah, I would greatly appreciate, if you'd tell me if the Roland CUBE-20X is worth it or not.

For bedroom use nothing wrong with a decent modelling amp.
Try to get a minimum 10 speaker, 8s or smaller sound like crap.

I had the Cube 40x. Needed more punch so traded for the 80x with 12' speaker. Very satisfied.

i'd try to get up to the 40x if you can, IIRC the 20 doesn't have amp modelling.

I had a Roland cube for a few years, I always recommend it to anyone. If I saw one at a deal I'd probably pick it up even though I don't need it. It's just a great amp to practice in the bedroom, at lower volumes. Don't bring it to a band practice expecting to compete with a tube amp or a drum set, you'll get drowned out
