    i use my Boss gt-3 in line/direct/mixer mode running through my pc sound card, connected to a stereo power amp (60w/channel) with about 10 speakers + a 200w subwoofer. awesome sound quality for all kinds of guitar tones, and it's great for recording, since i hear my sounds exactly as they'll be in the final mix :) :) versatile as hell, and i can play fukkin loud if i want :D

    this setup totally kills my Ross 100w guitar amp by far, and that's a good amp. i dont like having all my sound coming out of one little (or big) speaker box....

    i dunno what a standard stereo PA would give driving a couple of marshall stacks..... hmmmm.. should be interesting :)

    Im gonna decide soon.

    See my stereo produces 200w and thats fairly good if you ask me. And it can be played loud. So whats the point of getting an amp though?

    Becouse i like v-amp sounds and it's very cheap for the quality. I have tried some others (PODs i think not sure) in school, but i dont like them too much. I think v-amp is the best in quality-price scale.
