Anyone know if these are any good? I'm very intrigued by the concept, but skeptical of the quality of the modules.

Yup. The modules are what they are, representative of the sounds but not the actual amps they try to emulate so they aren't spot on but very good regardless. Mods can be done to the modules alone to tweak them.

The Randall amp (or Egnater MOD) are both very good amps, worth the money? Maybe, if you like the versatility or you like the ability to dramatically change your tone without buying a whole new amp it great.

I understand the George Lynch Mr.Scary, the Blackface, and Mesa modules are all excellent.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

Aren't the modules rather expensive though?

I think that it would be a good idea if you gathered up a bunch of modules over time and had access to like 8 different amp styles.

Each module can be had for something like $200, give or take. The RM50 has 2 slots, RM100 has 3, and rack mount has room for 4 modules (you'd still need a power amp). The basic head with no modules runs around $1100 or so.

The key is that once you have the head, you can go from Fender Blackface to Bogner XTC with the flick of a switch, for way less than buying both amps.

$2000 would get you the 100w head and 5 modules. Imagine the possibilities.

Well, at the moment, I'm leaning towards a Marshall JCM2000 DSL50 because I need a giggable amp and my parents are willing to pay half and let me pay them back at a later time. I'd like a very well-rounded sound with a ballsy crunch channel, a good lower gain channel and an awesome clean channel. Only catch is that I have to order this all through my friend at the GC because I'm getting a huge discount on everything. I could get a JCM2000 stack for around $1000 if I got it through him.

That's not a bad deal, I like the DSL for modern sounding rock and metal. If $1000 is your price range I would skip the Randall, cool as it is, because it won't be enough, you really need at least two modules, one clean and one crunchy.

For that money you could also consider the Fender Supersonic. The cleans are awesome and the Burn channel is surprisingly good. Very versatile. Check out the sound clips on the Fender website. I think those heads retail for around $1k.

I've heard tons about the Fender SS. One of the guys in a grind/death metal band around here actually uses a Fender SS stack and has great tone. I was thinking about using a DSL50 for my main OD sound and buying a Fender tube amp of some sort (I'm contemplating the Vibrolux, 65 Deluxe Reverb, 65 Twin Reverb and 65 Twin Reverb Custom 15. I love Fender cleans, so at this point, it's really picking the cream of the crop.) and just AB'ing between the two. I was also contemplating getting the Orange AD30HTC I've longed for to use for my lower gain tones and cleans. At this point, it's just about preference for me. As spoiled rotten as this sounds, my parents are willing to pay half for my amp, so this really widens up my range.

I thought the recto module was a bit crap, actually. the deluxe (fender) and plexi (marshall) modules were better, but IMO, it's way too dear for what it is, IMO.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
