We all know that the Spider III wasn't exactly great, but I've started to see some of the IVs and they look pretty sweet. I haven't been able to try one out yet, but I'm planning on it.

Any word on whether this is a new change or cheap rehashing?

they're supposed to be slightly better but they're still worth avoiding, just look at peavey vypyr's, roland cube's, and vox vt's

Its a relative thing they may have improved it, but it still has a long long way to go before they become decent amps. Question is have they made ANY improvement in the reliability of the slider series.

I'd say that the modellers are a bit improved on my Spider Jam (gen IV) as opposed to the Spider III, otherwise I don't think there's a big difference except the FBV-Connector on low-end Spiders and the LCD on high-end Spiders.
As for tone quality, that continues to be subjective and is worth trying out for oneself. As for hardware quality, they're very sturdy, as were the Spider IIIs.
