    :confused: Need some advice on the tonal difference between running a Line 6 Pro rackmount directly into my cab. verses incorporating a high quality pre-amp into my rig. What would the difference be? thanks---steve

    Well, the Line6 IS a preamp. But with it or with a secondary preamp of a higher quality, you won't hear a thing running straight into your cab. You need a power amp.

    To me, using an additional preamp defeats the pupose of the Pod. You should have a power amp and a speaker with the flatest (most uncolored) response you can afford.
