Thanks for the review. I played a Vox modelling combo amp awhile back and 
very impressed. 

What features does the looper have?

I'm confused. Are you saying it sounds better plugged into your mixer 
using the
"Amp" setting? Or the "Line" setting with the settings tweeked?

My DG Stomp came with all the patches set up with the speaker simulation

It's still not as realistic as I'd totally like though.
