Ok, old doubt: When I first bought DT25, I was blown away by the sound and feel of the amp itself. I love every topology (still running on the first firmware). But I was used to the "one button changes it all" from the spider valve, so I bought the HD500. I never could get the feel I had with the amp alone using the hd500. But I ended up using it with L6 link anyway. Years went by. Yesterday I plugged the guitar straight to the amp alone, and damn.... It's f.... amazing!! I know everybody says it sounds the same, and maybe it does, but that feel and response I get from the amp alone it's just not there, so I'm considering using the amp as a 2 channel amp and use the pod hd500 only as an effects unit. I just wanted to know if there's anybody who can relate to this.
New doubt: I still didn't update the firmware, from the DT25. I'm considering doing it but I'm affraid of losing those great 4 sounds I get from the amp now.
How do the amp models compare to the old ones? And what about the new amp models?
Thank you very much.
