Picked one up this weekend at GC for $99. They had them on sale, but it was more of a closeout as the new V2 amps are coming in stock. On an impulse and a $50 father's day gift card, I pulled the trigger. Decent sounding amp and effects but the sole reason I purchased was because of the stereo speakers. It does make a huge difference in sound to have a little delay or reverb coming out in stereo. Also, the headphone and mp3 connections sound very good as well which is important to me. It has served already as a nice speaker in the backyard while playing and BBQ'ing outside. I wasn't really amp shopping either, just noodling to see if anything was worth using my gift card. I plugged into a Katana and an Orange Crush and they sounded good if not better, but I just had more fun playing with the ID stereo output and it was on sale/closeout. As the V2's are getting to the stores keep an eye out for deep discounts on the V1's both new and used.
