I think I have some mental illness. I'm actually G.A.S.ing for one of these myself. I found a couple near me for around $250. The part that makes me wonder about my mental health is that I have a Kemper, and have ADA-MP1 profiles already. I'm obsessing about profiling it myself. What the F is wrong with me?

You seem to have realized that the real thing is typically better than a facsimile thereof, whilst also realizing that a dedicated preamp need not be any louder than your modelers.

I decided against buying the ADA-MP1 and purchasing the ADA-MP1 profiles from Big Hairy Profiles. Let me just say WOW, F'ing WOW. These profiles are leaps and bounds beyond the other ADA-MP profiles I have used, and I actually liked those. I am just completely floored by these. So much so, that a couple of these may end up being my "go to" sound (along with my Lynch profiles).

In the end it was an easy choice: Buy an ADA-MP1 and learn a new, but really old, system, or try the profiles. $200 vs $15 made it an easy choice. I am totally thrilled with these profiles.

I reckon you did the right thing. I doubt anyone could tell the difference between the ADA and the Kemper sound wise (if all the tests Chappers and Lee did are anything to go by though the Kemper usually comes out on top. It's all subjective though I guess). The only real reason buy the original is so you can own one, gas and all that.
