    If I ever go digital, it will be Axe-fx based

    I like the tone of the Aviator 2x10.

    But it is nowhere near 100w in my mind.

    I assess that it has less headroom/output than a DRRI.

    Maybe they’ve moved beyond whatever technology that used, but I was stunned.

    The one i saw years ago had an EVL,it sounded great, but I thought $500 was too high for a 20 year old SS amp. It was big and heavy too...

    Quilter doesn't make digital amplifiers; just analog solid state amplifiers.

    The Axe-fx definitely has more options and versatility than Quilter in that regard.

    I understand. I like ss for one reason, to be able to play 5-10 minutes and not turn my tube amp on for such a short time.I bet in the next couple of years, they will have a combo amp, Ax-fx couple with a transparent SS amp and transparent combo cab. Game over for lots of other amplification if they pull that off first.

    The reason that I went with the 101... Regarding the Axe, just run one into the effects loop of the Quilter...

    How does that saying go, that you get what you pay for?

    I got a 101 Mini about three years ago, and shortly after receiving it, I came to the conclusion that it's worth every penny - great construction, great tones, and consistent, reliable performance.
