Thanks for the reply, Tony,
I initially thought you were correct, as well as myself in my initial posting.
I then sold my XT Live and picked up a superb X3 (with all those lovely amps) and all was well... ...or so I thought.
I then found that whenever I was playing the X3 it sounded too trebly. The amps were quite bright in comparison to the XT Live. Could it be that the sonic improvements on the X3 might come across too harsh? I was constantly fiddling with the treble and presence knobs, and suddenly ending up with the amp models sounding muffled. I just kept fiddling with the knobs and hardly playing.
I thought I was losing my mind, but I found myself in a music store trading in the X3 for yet another XT live. Now everything sounds nice again.
Anyways, some food for thought. I think I prefer the lower-fidelity of the XT Live as compared to the brighter sound of the X3. Perhaps the XT simply compliments my amp better? Love the Line 6 gear!
