I got my PAS around Christmas and have had a chance to use it on about half a dozen solo nylon string guitar gigs to date. All I can say is "Wow!" I am hearing stuff I never heard before, both in the guitar (Yamaha with condenser mic and B-Band PU) but also in my Lexicon reverb. And I wasn't using crap before. I had been using a $1700 AER amp. But the PAS has more clarity (not brittle brilliance), can fill up a large room and still be completely comfortable right near it. The squeal from the guitar mic used to make me cringe. I can practically walk up and hug the tower with nary a squeak now. I love it so much I am actually selling my Marshall and I'm going to get the Roland VG-88 and use the PAS for electric gigs too. Great job!
By the way, I bought a Wave CD/Radio for my wife at the same time. Use it also as an aux speaker for our HD TV. Also killer...great job, guys!

Hi W D
Welcome to this community and thank you for your purchase and kind words.
Have you considered the new PODxt Live for electric? We worked hard with Line 6 to exactly match the two units. It's a beautiful marriage. I'm not a guitar player so there may be things I don't know about that would steer you away, but I did want to mention this on the chance that you hadn't heard of this collaboration.
If you follow me here and scroll down a bit to download a paper Marcus Ryle (founder and VP R&D with Line 6) and I wrote on our work together.
Roland VG stuff is amazing through the PAS. I use the VG-8, myself. Be sure your VG-88 has the version 2 software. There's an amazing patch editor on http://www.vg-8.com you can download for free, along with a ton of patches. Let me know if you have any questions. I haven't actually heard the XT Live through the PAS yet, but the PODxt is very good, too.
