OTOH, if the thing claims to model an amp, shouldn't it sound like what it 
to model? My Marshall doesn't have a bunch of fizzy high end noise. A 
model of
one shouldn't either. That's the point of the modelling thing, isn't it?

I think that's part of it. I have a Yamaha DG Stomp and the best I've ever 
it sound was when I was playing it through a loud PA. To my ear, it's just 
when it comes to recording, but when it was pumping in a floor monitor 
having a real amp next to me) it took on a life I'd not heard before.
