Default Boss Katana-Air

If this baby sounds pretty good I want one.
Wireless is so convenient.

I think the concept is neat and I do really like the Katana line. However, I have a couple concerns. One, this is most likely a home amp. I can't see it sounding big or loud enough for a live setting. That's quite a bit to spend on an amp that will sit at home. Secondly, part of me wonders why I don't just get the Line 6 G10 and use it with any amp I want. The pricing will have to be great on this in order for me to purchase it.

Looks like it's primarily voiced for electric guitars though, yes? Wonder if it will really reproduce full range acoustic tones accurately even with the "acoustic" setting. Maybe a dedicated acoustic version someday. Right now I'm getting amazing, totally wireless tones with my Elite Acoustics A1BR8 and my Xvive U2 transmitter - receiver system.

Not to be a grumpy sounding dude. But what is the benefit of a small wireless speaker? Is it geared towards players who play acoustic at home and want to be amplified?

Edit: Never mind. For an electric guitar this is really cool for practice. I would buy it for electric.
