Peavey Vypyr amps

Peavey is coming out with an new, interesting amp called VYPYR. It is a modeling guitar amp, and it is priced very attractively. The VYPYR amps are based on 32-bit, floating-point SHARC processors and patented TransTube analog circuitry. There are 24 amp channel models - both the clean and distorted channels of 12 popular amps.

There are also 11 editable preamp "stomp box effects" and 11 editable post-amp "rack effects" with dual-parameter control. You will be able to use up to five effects at the same time.

The VYPYR amp also acts as its own audio interface for your computer. It has a built-in, studio-quality USB 2.0 output.

I have not yet tested this amp myself, but my friend who owns my local music store will be bringing them in soon. At that time, I will go and try them out and report back here what I think of them. They sure look promising on paper.
