    So, it's ok for you to police my post, which was relevant to the thread topic, while yours has no relevance? Very intelligent!

    I have already posted my thoughful op contribution, it even has clips of the tones.
    I'm not policing you, I'm reacting to you, I've always been reacting to your bullets and jabs.

    What post number is your thoughtful contribution post to the op? I guess I could search for it.

    Great deal!

    Like I said in my post - turn off the speaker emulation unless you are using the line out. Makes a huge difference, and I'm convinced that, if Line 6 shipped them with the speaker emulation automatically off, these amps would have a much better reputation.

    I have and recommend the FBV Shortboard, which is a pedal board that works with the FIII. It opens up the amp's features quite a bit and the wah/volume pedal is nice to have. It also has a tuner built in.

    The huge difference between the Fenders and the Katana,,, is ,,,

    Fenders have lots of models, the Katana has 5 modes, 6 if you include the acoustic mode.

    It is very hard to dial in specific tones on the Fender, this is the same complaint I have with the Boss Nextone, they both sound like the amps they tout, but they can't get dialed into specific tones. The Katana excels at dialing it the sound of Pride & Joy and then nailing Peter Green's sound on Oh Well, or Santana Evil Ways, and thankfully Boss nailed some very nice Jimi sounds.

    Dialing in artist tones vs dialing in amp response modeling. That's the choice these two amps offer. Since I can't seem to cop a good Santana or SRV on the Fender or Nextone, and the Katana nails it, it becomes an easy choice for me.

    What do you want? The best knobs or the best tone?

    My problem with that is you're not pushing 2x12 very hard at all. This greatly changes the tone from an amp that's getting gain and volume sufficient for good tone.

    The Advantage with the Katana is you can 100w, 50w, .05w or as with my 50w version, 50w, 25w, .05w. The tone integrity remains.

    I want the best knobs. One of the most important functions for this amp will be to give my babies a place to sit.

    I’m not too worried about it. The Randall is 150W with no virtual power reduction, and I never had any complaints about its tone, in the same location.

    I basically want to play in my living room, enjoy some versatility, and not have a bunch of gear cluttering everything up.

    The baby pigs live on top of my amplifier, which is why the amp can’t have controls on top.

    Babies sitting on the amp? Dang, I'm lucky if I can get a babe to wash my dishes.

    My amp is always on a stand on an angle. This is my preference but it also keeps it away from cat claws. So no surface is flat.

    I might suggest your babies sit on your lap whilst you strum the guitar,

    I’m lucky to be pet free. While I have my Hot Rod Deluxe on an angled stand, this amp is down on the floor aimed at my shins. It’s really about convenience in this location.

    Ok, so I’m not really in the mix so much but my new fav is my pocket pod into my champ 600 with a 10 inch speaker ... don’t really like the jbl310 sound but it is what I have right now... gets me too a good practice place.

    Pocket POD is a good piece of kit. I like to use mine with headphones.

    I have a Flextone II Plus that is awesome, you really need the pedalboard to maximize the flexibility. The only downside is because they are older you need to use midi for deep editing and the documentation is a little weak but it works. I used to have a Johnson Millennium that may have been the best sounding amp I have ever owned but heavier than hell and I did not trust the reliability.
    Ok, just remembered the OP wanted front controls, scratch the Flextone. I think the Johnson had front controls.
