for $200 this is a steal. has great build quality. very realistic amp modeling. very realistic and responsive modulation effects. nice filters for the expression pedal. great delays and reverbs. user friendly inteface.
Admittedly, I've not even scratched the surface when it comes to tone matching, or indeed explored many of the amp models provided, but considering that I use it as a back up for when I'm gigging, insofar as I have set up a clean, dirty and louder dirty sound that I can plug into the PA should I encounter a significant equipment failure or be having issues with sound limiters, it really does the job perfectly. I have used the Bluetooth connectivity to practice with, and found this useful when learning songs for weddings and corporate functions (no one wants to hear my 15 minute jazz odyssey at those events). I'm not a great fan of the App used to modify the sounds on my iPad though, as I find it a bit cumbersome when saving changes and can't work out how to A/B the changes I've made in a quick fashion.
I plugged it into the second input of my studio monitors and it know copes with guitars and bluetotth streaming. Controlable thorugh a current gen iOS device and with sounds ranging fromold school to what comes close to Dubstep it is what I consider the future of guitar - also I still like a big stack!
I purchased the Amplifi FX100 after 2 friends made the recommendation.
I love it for the ease of discovering fully explored sound profiles. It is fun to search tones based on Artists and songs. The sounds quality is very good. I like the rig as a compact, ready to roll pedal board.
The downside, depending on your personality, is that this rig is a time suck. If you love to tweak, you can lose yourself in twiddling the hours away. If tweaking is not your thing, you will also be happy to find many presets that are ready to roll. Given the community aspect, there are more coming on all the time.
Build quality is a little off. It is a solid rig that I feel I can trust, but the paint was a it shoddy. Otherwise, seamingly solid. Instructions are also Spartan, so be warned, you can count on fumbling around before getting comfortable with the operational features. BluTooth functionality is the single worst thing about the gear. It is unpredictable and drops out at the most inconvenient times which is seriously agrivating.
Good or bad, what the FX100 has done for me is introduce me to some interesting tones and has ultimately sent me on the hunt for specific, standalone pedals. I'm digging the hunt even if my patience (and wallet) is not. ~m
