just a quick question:
is it better to have the speakers of your amp blasting at you directly ( I'm playing near a desk, the amp would stand on the desk and my ears would be at the same height as the speaker more or less) or have it down to your feet? Or buy one of those Deflection System (http://www.thomann.de/gb/deeflexx_h1_aura.htm)?
**** deflections systems.

Try both and do what you like the sound of best.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I guess spambots are now capable of reading minds.
Those deflection systems are something a top class professional would be using at a live gig. No need to use one in your house, especially at £200.

For the best interaction between speakers, strings and tone woods, point your amp towards your guitar.
