Why are you bothered about someone else thinking EMGs sound best through tube amps? You just bought the cube. It's all opinion. Granted they do what they're built to do with tube amps but if you like what you have you should keep it.

EMG's sound the same through SS AND Tube amps. It's just a myth perpetuated by the tube purists. I have tried many EMG-equipped guitars through roland cubes and they sounded great.

EMG's are kind of sterile sounding, 'cause they're heavy pickups which is good if you play metal, rock, etc., but anyway, every form of pickup is gonna sound different through a tube amp, because tube amps express the sound of the guitar clearer and nicer. EMG's in particular don't make a difference. If you want a new amp, just buy a nice solid state, unless you WANT the real nice warm tube amp sound. I hope this helped.

so far, i am still getting mix feedback about how emg sound through SS and tube amp. Let just say tube sound better with emg, is there any tube amp in my price range that i can get to sound better than cube 30x? just name them then i will go to GC and try them out to decide for myself. i play mostly metal/rock

remember i am willing to go used

It won't make the tube amp sound better, it'll just make the EMGs work for what they're made for. I'd stick with the cube until you need a bigger amp and have some more money for one.
