Great! Just to be clear, when you say "pod line out to fx receive" are you talking about one of the two unbalanced 1/4" outputs on the POD (Right or Left)?

actually my amp is stereo so i use both 1/4 outputs. but i pretty sure you can use either

I ran my HD Bean in 4CM...It's a tweaky setup, but it works pretty well with amplifiers that the Master volume is after the FX Loop return...

Well, I've just connected my POD HD Desktop to my Line 6 HD147 FULL STACK and under " NO " configuration can i get it to actually sound awesome.
It sounds "OK" @ best hooked into the front of the amp on a clean model . But through the effects loop - "Forget It" !!! Trust for the last 2 weeks i've
researched this unit, Asked questions, Watched Videos. So i fully understand how it works. Yes i've set my line inputs for the stack and tried the other ones.
Still can't get anything gr8 from it. Connecting it to the Input of the HD147 gets way too colored by the amps EQ. You can adjust the EQ of the amp so that it's
"OK", But i still dont care for it . And running it through the Effects Loop, It looses "ALL" of it's punch. The bass is real shallow sounding . The Gain stage of the
Rectifier gets reduced to that of a MARSHALL JCM800 Hotrodded . And no amount of eqing or distortion pedal etc. brings it even close to that of the PC.
Now on a that note , Hooking it through my PC for recording is totally awesome to say the least. In this configuration "DIRECT/STUDIO" it falls nothing short of phenominal .
Even the sound that's recorded is authentic to what you hear as your recording . "But" I really wanted the flexability of being able to connect it to my HD147
with outstanding results as well but no dice . The problem here is , I own the LINE 6 UX8 in which i also own PODFARM PLATINUM 2.5, No you cant get the clarity
of the POD HD through PODFARM PLATINUM, But the sounds you can create are awesome. Been tempted to return it "POD HD" a few times now, But i've actually fell
in love with it for my PC. Just wish i could've known ahead of time. I'd have probably went with the HD500 or something of the same nature. Kinda feel like i got handed the
keys to a Diablo but when i tried to start it, I realized they never put the intake on. LOL - "LINE 6 equipment is awesome" !!! If you want the best sound possible for recording,
And your on a budget and really can't afford the amps of the models that are in these babies, Then this is for sure for you ... "HANDS DOWN" !!!
P.S.- By no meens am i an export with the POD HD Desktop. Just an owner of some gr8
LINE 6 equipment sharing my oppinion on it.
