I am a LOOONNGG time lurker and finally getting an Ultra. I have read and heard the II is far more superior, yadda yadda. I just want to know in a nut shell, can the Ultra get close to the II? In terms of, sound quality? I have no problem tweaking. If takes more than the II, than so be it. I have given up, on trying to get a hold of II, the money is just not there and never will be. I am settling for an Ultra and I am fine with it. I am disabled and just want a SUPER light rig to take and jam again. Axe-Power Amp- Cab- Done. It still beats anything else right? Aside from the II? Correct? I want a rack unit too, so the ax8 is out. Can't stand long enough to stomp on it anyway, lol. Thanks Y'all.
