I just went to try out some amps, and I really like one amp, but everybody here says it sucks. I also really liked some VOX combos.

So, I need some suggestions for a combo amp between 400 and 500 USD.

I play a lot of metal (Iron Maiden), so I need something with good distortion.

Anybody who owns/has owned an amp in this price range, what model do you have and what do you think of it? Is it worth the price you paid?
