If you liked the original, you'll probably love the current
incarnation. The amp models have gotten much better. The latest
software revision (3.0) includes still more amp and fx models, and
there are also additional fx and amp packs that you can purchase.
Check out line6.com for details, clips, movies, etc.
At first I thought the XT's amp models were pretty poor, but that
could have been due to the way I was using the box--with a combo amp.
I wouldn't use it with an amp now, but instead would use it for
direct recording. I've talked to a few people whose opinions and
experience I trust, and they say that you can get some great sounds
of the XT. Plus, it also takes pedals well (of which I have tons...),
and has an fx loop. I can put my Eventide in there for good measure.
And I can record without disturbing the neighbors or the family.
Anyway, I think I'll give the XT another chance.
