you wouldn't be able to power speakers with out one. it's one of the main sections of any amp. it's the part that supplies the wattage and power to the sound so it has volume...

could you just put a power conditioner, compresser, and an effect(somehitng like a G-Major) in a rack alone and use the amps tone and maybe get a few overdrive floor pedals?

14guitar: yes. just put it in the FX loop of the amp, or out front, or both, depending on what processors you're using.

raging: yeah, the puttsecks. made me chuckle.

I'm not quite following what you mean. Like derek said, you can use rack units with a regular amp, if that's your question. I run a G-Major and a Sonic maximizer on the FX loop of my amps. They are regular amp heads, not rack units.

well, a power conditioner is really only going to help with a noisey power source, it's just a fancy power strip really. I know DBX is a pretty good name for compressors, but I've never tried that model. I love the G-Major though. It's a very transparent unit, I was finding the cheaper units tended to color my sound and add a digital quality to it. You can also configure it to run serial or parallel fx, so in parrallel it runs a dry signal along with the wet fx signal, so you can make it even more transparent if you wanted. Since my amp has a parallel loop already, I run the unit in serial mode. As far as the JSX, it's a very nice amp, and it has an fx loop, so it should take rack units fine IMO. Satch doesn't seem to have any problems with fx.
