Hi guys.
I want to know if it's possible to play my POD HD500 directly into a studio monitor/computer speaker, without the need to use a DAW/turning on computer.
So far I've been using my POD through a keyboard amplifier. I'm moving to a new city and plan to bring my HD500 with me, but the keyboard amp is too heavy to transport.
I plan to buy a new computer and speakers. If I can play directly to my speaker, It will spare me the cost of buying another amp/frfr speaker.
I'm a total noob about digital recording, and english is not my first language either. I hope you can understand what I mean. Thanks a lot!

Hi Blue Diamond


for what its worth I have my HD300 going directly into AV100 monitor speakers as well as my Mac Mini. I have two 1/4 inch  guitar cables feeding left and right into the speakers and its fine.

Of course you can. I use the POD with two Yamaha HS5 powered studio monitors via XLR.  Using the XLRs the volume is lower than using the 1/4 inch jacks, so you might use that instead, I don't care.
