    Looks and sounds pretty good. No PC editor. I don't like editing on a phone. I guess I'm old school, or just old.

    Didn't watch the videos yet - gotta wait until lunch. If it's a wi-fi amp, is that much different than the Bluetooth hookup Line 6 was using with the Firehawk stuff?

    From what i heard until now, especialy the Fender models sound very good!
    You don't need PC or Smartphone, the amps are completely editable on their own, but you can use PC editor or the App, if you want to.

    Looks like a step up on a decent product line. I'll be watching future reviews/demos.

    Not loving the look of it, but love the smartphone capability and WiFi/Bluetooth. And it sounds good in the clips I've heard.

    As with the last gen Mustang, the Fender amps played on the cleaner side sound great. The non-Fender British gain amps sound truly awful. Thin, tinny and fizzy. I'll keep my Code.

    Wow Fender actually thought about current Mustang users. The ability to transfer current presets over from existing Mustangs to these is brilliant. Was certain they wouldn't do this. +1 for this ability alone! Well done.

    Overall sounds pretty good. I can definitely hear where my money went to in my Axe and my Kemper (particularly the slightly pushed, non MV type amps and the distortion tones). But for the price, it sounds pretty damn good. And, yes, granted that is from the factory presets. I think the added ways to tweak it are great. They actually cover ALL bases, unlike the Marshall Code, and had Phone PC, etc.

    Not a fan, of the black cylinder knob, black front, more modern 'look' though. I DO like the front facing controls though.

    I want to know if the modeling technology has been improved or is it the same as V2s with bluetooth, wifi, smart phone...

    I'll be holding out for quite a while on this to see what the hands on impressions are and possibly even wait for a V2 GT. In the meantime my Mustang III V2 will do for my amp modelling. Bluetooth and wireless aren't that big of a deal for me if there isn't a significant improvement in sound.

    Waiting to see if they have tablet use ability as well as phone. Would prefer at least a 10" speaker in the 40 watter rather than 2x 6.5" but i didn't get a say so will have to suck it up if i get one.

    There's a thread about this over on tdpri, and one of the guys bought one and has been leaving pretty good feedback on it. He actually swapped out the stock speaker and said it made a huge difference.
