Sage advice all, ditto.
Thank you all for the great advise and tips. It seems that Marshall is getting the majority of the votes. I played the JVM and liked the flexibility of it, and it seemed that with a bit of tweaking I can get "my sounds" out of it. On the negative side, it felt "cheaply" made by Marshall standards. The pots did not have a great feel, and it took big moves on them to get significant changes in sound. With high gain, about 70% on the hottest channel, it started getting fizzy. The MIDS seemed as if the center frequency was at an odd spot. But I can use the EQ on the NOVA to get around that. It was also very noisy.
As for my choice to move away from pedals; I want to use the NOVA to switch amp channels AND effects with one stomp. Example: Starting on clean with Delay, Plate verb, chorus, heavy compression, and a unique EQ----then switch to heavy crunch with verb, mild compression, a hint of octave down, and a different EQ. The NOVA can do this very well. I know that I can "kind of" do this if I used and FX looper and a bunch of MIDI pedals, but that gets too cumbersome. Also, very few dirt pedals speak to me.
