I picked a Vox amPlug as an impulse buy and found myself using it every day at home, so I fugured I better get the cabinet to go with it! This thing is awesome! I find myself plugging into it all the time. It's addicting. Does it sound just like my real amps? Of course not, look at the size of it! Is it the coolest thing ever? You bet!
I have used an amPlug AC30 for a year-and-a-half or so. I like it, but headphone wires can get in the way while playing and be a nuisance. I bought an amPlug Cabinet as soon as it became available. No, of course you aren't going to get big sound from a 3" speaker. The tone is always bright, but I can dial in both clean and crunchy tones. The pluses are that the amPlug cabinet is small enough to fit in the case with my Strat and, since it is battery powered, I can plug up and be practicing in seconds. I think it is good for what it is and would replace it if it were lost.
As delighted as I was with the amplug for the bass and the sound in the earphones, my hopes were probably too high for this tiny speaker. It will probably be great for a guitar, but it's pretty unsatisfying for the bass. It allows someone else to hear the notes that you're playing, but you won't impress them.
When I first bought the Classic Rock amPlug I was amazed that I finally found THE practice amp during the late (or early) hours. Even better was this cabinet, so for something with a bit of volume, I didn't have to blow out my eardrums. While you're not going to get a bunch of volume out of it, though, because of its size, it doesn't matter because the sound is so crisp. As I type this, I can't think of any problems whatsoever (although I don't know how well this thing ages - being a Vox, it should be fine). Someone said something about cords getting in the way, but I just used a longer headphone cord and threw it behind my back like a strap, no problem with that.
For such a small speaker, this can go loud! I was surprised at the volume I could get out of it. It has a bit of extra hum and at times can sound harsh (although it may be thanks to the amplug), but I really like this, especially its portability. It fits in my backpack when I want to take it with me wherever.
One thing that I haven't liked about plug in (headphone style) amps is their tendency to hiss. My AC30 amplug is better than some but still no different when turning up the tone. Plug it into this speaker and the hiss is all you hear. When playing, it overpowers the clarity of the notes and I have to dial the tone way down. Dialing in gain also muddies and distorts the tone to gravel and yet is more defined with headphones. I'm truly unhappy with the amp cab.
