I get the feeling that Alesis isn't much better.? :(
My mainstays are an AKAI controller, M-Audio external soundcard(s), ART tube amps, no guitar worth more than $250, and a Roland electronic drum set from at least a decade ago.
Still haven't built amps for these Klipsch speakers, though the day will probably come within 6 months. Supposedly. One of my other techhead bandmates will help advise.
Edit: I also have a Fender Mustang 1 POS amp. If anything I play sounds OK on that thing, I know I'm in good shape.
