I'm using two EV-12L speakers in my stereo guitar rig and I love it.  I'd
highly recommend the speakers to anyone....very musical and "guitar"

Unless you own a good speaker emulation or prefer that "direct" tone -- go
with guitar cabinets.  Having said that, on occasion I do record my loops
direct to tape...it all depends on the end product desired.

"Sound quality" is so subjective.  Bottom line:  you've got to be able to
tolerate your tone/sound.  If you hate the way your rig sounds, you aren't
going to want to play.
