The main purpose I purchased the A1000 was separate direct outputs one for guitar and one for vocals.The direct outputs are clean no effects which is a real negative. The effects are programable and they sound awesome. The effects can be layered up to 3. The effects let you dial them in for a great mix in volume and creating the perfect effect sound. Compared to a fender acoustasonic 150 this has way better bottom end for both guitar and vocals. It's twice as heavy and bulky compared to the fender 150. The A1000 has crisp highs which can be shaped to fit any type of genre you need. The A1000 is punchy like a Marshall half stack you can feel the sound waves, the fender 150 can't do that. The EQ for the A1000 works very well you can get the perfect tone you need. The A1000 can produce stereo sounds in the effects when turned on and have a good quality. The specs from the manufacture say "true stereo" direct outs which is not correct since no effects come out the direct outs. I wish it did cause the effects really make this amp come alive. The headphone jack mimics the speaker really close with a good pair of headphones and the speakers shut off when the headphones are plugged. The mid range sweep doesn't do much for my acoustic but for vocals you can hear a difference. I've tried a Takamine CB4 and a LR Baggs Active pickups. Great for small to medium venues. Large venues I'm a bit bummed since no effects through the Direct Outs I have to mic the A1000 and send to the board along with the directs outs and let the sound guy work the mix and that takes away the "true stereo" sound the manufacture says it has. The A1000 will it through the drums easy. When it's standing vertical if you bump it you will notice the weight of gravity is a bit high and could easily tip back. How far it will go I hope I never find out. A very beautiful amp. Below is why I give it 4 stars. The two things to make the A1000 an unbelievable amp 1 effects going out the direct outs 2 a pedal to change the effects. The negatives bulky, heavy, awkward to carry and haul around.

First amp I had lasted a few months but then the up and down push buttons (on the right hand side) fell behind the face panel so there was no way to control that channel's options ( or the tuner option) .. I returned it to GC and got #2 on 12/30/2015 and on 3/4/ 2016 and guess what same thing happened - the up button is behind the face panel and the LED display is flashing un-readable messages. The grill cloth on # 2 was loose and looked lousy -the supplied documentation is a joke - there are " user programmable channels" available but no information on how to program them in the paperwork with the amp or at Acoustic's web site. The amp sounds ok not great because the on board effects need to be tweeked but no idea how to adjust them. This one will go back to GC in a few days-- First I will look at other brands to see what is out there and talk to the Marietta Ga. store to see what my options are when I return it and what happens to my 36 month warranty I purchased . Last it is HEAVY-HEAVY. I'm not trying to bash Acoustic but this amp has design problems - I have two of Acoustic's last models an AG30 and AG60 and both are great no issues - I thought the A1000 would be a nice upgrade but as it is now I was wrong -- If you buy one at least get a 1 year extended warranty would be my suggestion - you may get a good one with no issues but with me 2 strikes and your OUT.

Comments about A1000 100W Stereo Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

With four inputs with individual volume controls and phantom power, and two separate effects chains it seems well capable for an acoustic duo to gig with, or for an individual to use with a couple of guitars. I run my jazz box through a pedal board into it, and it sounds sweet.

I do have a couple of quibbles:

The aux input works great. The Bluetooth is a problem. it seems to have a range of about 5 feet, which is totally silly.

Also, when you power it on, it does not remember what effects were active, and goes immediately to "dry no effects". On the other hand, when you move to an effect, either something built in or a user preset, you can't go back to dry without turning it off.
from to initial setting, you have to hit the up button to get to the presets, or the down button to get to the user presets, which means the first user preset is #20 rather than #1. This seems kind of counter intuitive, to say the least.

So - not perfect, but sounds good, is reasonably priced and very portable. I like that I can leave it set up in the den so I can practice with a mike and amplification.

      Comments about A1000 100W Stereo Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

      Mix up on my guitar so I am not able to comment on how it plays. However, I wanted to check out the amp while it was sitting in my living room if only because it had to be done. Packaging was nice. Two boxes, still easy to carry if only a bit awkward, well protected. Plugged it in and turned on the Bluetooth, asked the wife to put on some tunes on her cell pone and activate the Bluetooth. Dialed in the in easy to find pin number in the owner's manual - wondered why it wasn't my year - and voila connected. I had turned down the master volume and put the phone volume on high so when I turned up the master volume the house started rocking. It sounded awesome.

      Brought the amp to another house and it sound great hooked up to the computer playing off youtube and radio paradise. I have never had better speakers. Either I live in a cave or these speakers sound great. Best Bluetooth speakers I have ever owned. Cannot wait for my guitar to arrive and start playing through it. I may just be a cityboy but if they sound this good through the Bluetooth connection, I am just assuming that they are going to sound this great once I am plugged in.

      Still this is just a Bluetooth review - nothing more. I love that I now have phantom power. Opens up more options. The kid will probably use this amp for running her Karaoke machine. Only time will tell

        I use this for an X model Martin. Sound is exactly what I wanted. Had a small Crate amp that I loved but too much feedback and not powerful. This amp adjusts to eliminate feedback and it has the same effects I loved in my Crate.

          I did my homework and shopped around before purchasing. I also compared Fender's Acoustasonic amp side by side. The Acoustic obviously came out on top.

          Well I talked to the Pro Coverage people and the Marietta GC and I'm stuck with the A1000 even though it had failed twice they will not allow me to get another brand of amp-- saying " we will repair it or exchange it for a new one" ( extended warranty will decrease from the time I got this one/returned it for a new one) - IMO this sucks but if they keep failing - I keep returning them till I get one that works/ or they let me get a different brand of amp -- Eddy M.
