    The RX Cube that uses battery's is good for stereo sound into my SWR WM12 and WM15. There is no background noise and the controls are simple to use. Just thought I would mention it. Some other guy took the RX cube apart and just uses the amp portion for a pre into power amps.

    This is all used in my rec room/studio.

    Just caught this thread while searching for info on a cube 60.

    Yes.

    I use my micro cube as a preamp for recording and it sounds absolutely amazing. I've had some heavy duty studio guys say, "This dude gets some awesome bass sounds in his home studio."

    ... now you've got me thinking. I prefer the modelling from my Roland over my Zoom B3 by leaps and bounds.

    I have done exactly this. In live performance it was too noisy with stage lights and less than perfect venue wiring. At home and rehearsal it totally works, I found it to be really fun. I plugged into a Genz Benz Shuttle 9.2 and got a lot of use out of it.
