Re: Need your help: short guitar amp survey
The reason why the list includes those 5 companies is because they all have products (Marshall JMD, Line6 SpiderValve, Peavey Vypr, etc.) which are similar to what my design group is planning to build: a modeling based tube amp head. Fractal obviously isn't an amp head, but it's included, i think, to gauge people's interest in modeling software. I believe the trend is that most people tend to associate Line6 modeling with being "cheap", whereas the Axe-Fx is more on the "high end" side of the modeling world. Of course, all this was based off the Line6 stuff before they released all these new HD sims.
hope that helps
