I recently bought this amp and I'm waiting for it to come in. I've been reading around and I hear a lot of bad reviews on this amp. I was on a budget and this thing was on sale and I said a big amp for a small price, why not? After the reviews I'm kind of skeptical about this amp now. Is there a better amp for around $300 or is this amp a great deal. For some info, I play all kinds of music.
I used/ still use one and it is great, deffinatly sounds better with a cab
Vox Ac 30 (main)
Fender Supersonic with Krank Krankenstien 4x12
OR 50 with 4 x 12
Gassing for ibanes airplane flanger
That was a pretty good deal. I preferred the original AD rather than the XL, as well as preferring the new VT series over both of the previous ones.

In any case, don't worry about the reviews, but a speaker swap may be a good option. Enjoy!
