I always been a peavy and a marshall user and never heard of the cube series before until one day i was at steve's music store and i heard a guy playing on the Cube60 with R-fier modulation. It blew me away the clarity and almost accurate R-fier emulation.
So you guest it right, i went and i bought one.
The 60 is one hell of a loud and powerful amp. 65 watt of pure muscle in a small enclosed box. a bomb....put it only on volume 2 and you'll found out.
Very versatile amp with the onboard effects that i found useful enough and not to mention the 7 amp emulation including the stunning acoustic emulation.I loved the emulation so much that also bought the BOSS GS10 multy effect, usb to pc interface machine.
Cabinet out, 2 footswitch out, recording out and a tuner out.
to tell you the truth im hooked to that small little devil that smokes all the line6 combo amps out there with his accurate amp and preamp emulations.
To go back to your original Q, buying a 60 if you are gigging in a club or practicing with a live band. warning: amp is hellishly loud.
cube 30 will be great for home or an appt practice, not as loud...
note: Roland and Boss came a long way at amp emulation. They didn't nailed it yet but on the right course..to damn close.
You can hear the Boss gs10 emulation and effects which is the same as the cube60 on my Demo Album RISE that is entirely done in my home studio on my JEM7DBK, Prestige 1570 with evo pickups, Boss GS10, Boss DR880 drum machine and Cakewalk recording software http://www.soundclick.com/pro/view/0...=main&songid=0
Enjoy and i hope you like my small review of the amp. I should get paid by BOSS and ROLAND. lol
