(200 watt total). Emu VHQ USB2 link to computer. Computer runs 'Reaper' sFX into speakers. Simply superb- -no hum, in...

Re: Using Active speakers as the main amp.

Hi Dagwood, Isaid I would let you know how How I got on with the new system. I hooked up my studio monitors to the right and left output channels,(POD XT) powered up the system and all I get is a very low volume, fairly muddy,sound. Turning up the speakers volume offers a lot of power hum, but no re...

Re: My knobs are loose.

Hallo, the problem with our Guitar dealers/shops/repair services is that they need to make a profit! It is nice to cherry pick whats on offer, i.e, looking at/playing the guitars, testing the pedals, having a cup of tea, attending the playing celebrity, , and occasionally buying some new strings, bu...

Re: Using Active speakers as the main amp.

That was very helpful. I have taken the plunge and ordered a Line 6 POD XT. This seems to get almost universal acclamation on Harmony Central, and it has a lot more 'voices' than I will ever need. Essentially I want a good reverb and delay/Echo. I am using a strat with new pickups,(new for me), S/Du...

Re: Using Active speakers as the main amp.

Many thanks Dagwood- So you are using JUST the Boss multi effects and the Active Speakers? This is what I hoped to hear, I am receiving conflicting advice as to how a mixer would be beneficial, but the advisor wanted to sell me something.....and I do not want to connect up to a PC, this is simply fo...

NEW TO GUITARNOISE - HELLO...

Hallo, I have enjoyed playing for a number of years, but I make better guitars than I do play them. Fortunately I have an Elder son who cannot make them, but can play something wicked. (He is my biggest critic). I specialise in High end replica Strats and teles, and have received a number of commiss...

Using Active speakers as the main amp.

Hallo, can anyone advise me on the merits or possiblities of using Active Speakers/Monitors instead of using a conventional guitar amp? I have purchased a pair of Biamped Studio Monitors, offering 75W and 25 w per speaker, (2), and I am awaiting the delivery of a Lexicon Reverb Multi Effects process...
