Do you know why he said that?  Does he think the V-AMP floor board (I
believe it is one board for all rack, table top, and amp modules) is
inferior?  I guess this means he thinks that the V-Amp2 is pretty much
equal in audio quality.  

The V-Amp2 is certainly much cheaper on ebay than the V-Amp pro. On the
other hand, I really like the idea of having the AES out.  I can't
really afford either at the moment, and when I can, I'll consider if I
really want to spend the extra $100 for AES.

That is nice to know.

Just out of curiosity, have you ever tried using a clean boost pedel
with the V-Amp?  Does it react the way one might hope it would (meaning
the way it reacts if you use a clean boost on a tube amp).
