All of the preceding message is quite true. There are some other issues too.

When you listen to speakers you are also hearing the room. This changes the amount of
reverb you would like to hear. I find cutting back the reverb helps.

Second, you will probably be listening at a higher level through headphones. Try rolling up
the bass and treble on the amp to compensate when listening on speakers.

However, having heard those Roland Keyboard Amps, and a lot of others, most of them
suck. I have a Mackie SRM450 which I like a lot. They have managed to reduce the adiabatic
distortion in the horn throat and the unit goes down to at least 40Hz. They are fairly
spendy, but they are built like the proverbial masonery outbuilding.
