Time will tell
They really are such different tools. From the aesthetic, to the design implementation, to the interface, they are really on two different sides of the spectrum. I can say, having owned the AxeFX, the KPA is a better fit for me. I love the layout, the look, the ergonomics of it, and definitely the do-it-yourself approach to profiling. I am very lucky to have a pretty sick amp collection, so being able to copy my EXACT amps and sounds is paramount to my workflow. I don't see a need or value in saying one is inherently better than the other, but I can say that in my experience, the KPA is more similar to a real amp than the Axe, which is almost surreal in it's tweakability. To use a silly metaphor, the KPA is nonfiction, the Axe is science fiction.
