Absolutely agree...I love the GT-5. The only serious advantage I can see 
the -3, besides price, is that they've improved the access to groups via 
single footswitch presses on it, so you don't have to add a 2nd foot 
controller as Miko has to have quick access to more than one bunch of 5 
(or 4 
on the -3) patches. Otherwise, the deep editing power of the -5 is 
preferrable, I'd say. Re: the Pod, I have to say  I think it raises the 
for accurate simulations of real amp tones, over the Roland stuff, fine as 
is.  But it sure ain't a multi-fx, so it can't compare as a means of 
and controlling unique sounds.
