I'm considering getting the new AXE-FX II that is to be released this month, I had ordered the new POD HD500 Bean, but canceled the order to wait on the FX II, I'm wondering what people here at GMC think of the devices.

I'm wondering if its worth spending the extra for the AXE-FX II as compared to the POD HD500, the price for the AXE II is more then 4 times that of the POD HD500 Bean?

I've only been playing for a few months and I'm not anywhere near a professional, but I used to have the POD X3 and I enjoyed messing around with all the settings and decided to sell it knowing that the POD HD500 Bean is coming out in a couple of days. I've seen a lot of good comments online about the AXE-FX and I'm seriously considering getting one.

All comments are welcome.

Thank you,
DSterling

Just received the POD HD Desktop yesterday and I'm checking it out to see if I'll keep it. Preorders for the AXE-FX II are being taken now, but I'll hold off until I get better with the POD. I also found out about another device called a Kemper Profiling Amplifier, I googled it and it may compete with the AXE-FX II, its a different type of modeling device. The Kemper is supposed to be released the middle of this year.

Kemper Profiling Amp is one of the new cool concepts, but I wouldn't invest in it, it's still a concept. Axe-FX is being used by pros already, and it's certified. Kemper one is a bit complicated, interface is not friendly, there is lag, there are no save/load options for profiles etc..
