I am about 20' from my PA and, although I have gotten used to it, it is an adjustment, especially if you are playing your acoustics along with it.
I tried to record with the e kit using the PA as my monitor and, although the distance was only 20', I could hear the lag enough to make me go WTF? I looked at it colsely and sure enough, everything was a tiny bit behind. I went to headphones for recording and it's no problem.
