I have been checking out this amp as a possible replacement for my Cyclops for portability reasons. It is a bit smaller (not much lighter though!) and I like the features of it that I have read so far. My idea is to run this amp in front of me as a monitor with it's ext speaker out running into my 8 ohm 2x15 cab behind me. I have a gig coming up in a month so I am hoping to straighten out my gear situation pretty soon. I would appreciate any comments from owners of this amp (or anyone who knows about it). Also, if you can; How does this compare with the Cyclops volumewise, toneally (opinions count!) and portabilitywise. I am not sure if I will have a chance to try this out... I might be buying it from MF so please let me know what you think and thanks in advance for your help!!
