1. Bob Gollihur (Wordsmith Music) is the dude! No hype. 2. Everything he said about these amps and cabs was true. Off access tone and volume are equal to on center, volume, projection and accuracy are exceptional. 3. I had some minor issues with the head/cab and all of the EA staff was on it like white on rice. They told me a temporary fix, and arranged for a replacement. Any company can have defects from suppliers the proof is in how they treat the customer. 4. This is really high end gear. My Dave Maize ABG for the first time sounds real and I can with a preset boost the true low frequencies without muddying the rest. My Roscoe is incredible down to the low B. Guild Ashbory is phenomenal. IMHO a great amp can be played flat. 5. What I purchased was a Cxl-112 and an iamp800. As I said in another thead I was going deaf practicing quietly because the projection and clarity is so extreme. Thank you, EA!
