5 things come to mind: 1. added effects loop 2. updated acoustic simulator as in the other cube x amps 3. build in tuner 4. line in for iPods etc like in the smaller cube x amps 5. XLR out I'd say 1 and 2 are very likely, 3 very unlikely and 4 and 5 maybe.
What's wrong with the old one? How would you update it?

Make a Cube 120 with 2x12's so it more accurately nails the JC120, the sound on that setting now is worse than a boss pedal through a gorilla. Other than that, make it somehow footswitchable, although one of the highlights is it's easy of use, here's a knob, move it, sound changes. If there was a way to keep that philosophy in the user controls, but incorporate a footswitchable interface keeping it simple, that would be awesome.
If it doesn't have direct outs now, it certainly should, not for extension cabs, but for going to a sound board or recording platform.
These concerns are the sole reason I don't buy the 60. I know as soon as I do, they'll make what I really want, as described above and my 60 will be 50% resale like a Ford F-150.
For now, it's the JC120 with a few pedals. It sure would be nice to AB it would a Cube 120 for the rec and marshall sounds. I'd pay $500 for it, maybe more.

I had a Cube 60 for several years. Great size, easy to carry, some good-some decent amp sounds, extremely simple, basic effects. Fine amp, but sold it. Preferred my older Trademark 60. Basically size & configuration, but much more versatile, IMHO.
However, here are the changes to the Cube 60 I'd make:
1. XLR out for recording and performance
2. Add another effects knob for additional control.
3. PLEASE update the acoustic simulator.
4. Move the JC in channel 1 to the lineup of the 9 amps on channel 2. Make it 10 choices. Then put all 10 COSM amp choices in BOTH channels. This way, you could select a Fender with a Mesa. Or a Vox with the acoustic. Instead of marrying you to the JC for channel 1.
