Has it been established that the Pod XT Pro sounds that much better?

One side note though. After listening to a few tracks recorded using the V-VAMP (see my song lists below, the newer songs were recorded using a V-AMP2 and older ones using a 2X12 Twin Reverb), everytime you listen to them, there's a little voice in the back of your brain that complains that you cheated a bit. But that usually lasts just a second or two.

I imagine I would just go with an amp if it weren't for my sleeping kids, the neighbors, and the fact that I'd probably have to invest a few years before I had even a clue how to capture the sound I want. I know amp modeling will have its limitations, but I actually think I'd be limited even more so with one or two amps (speaking not only of tone but also convenience).
