Hi - Is the Firmware update v2.0 necessary if using an HD500 with the DT25 amp?  I don't want the expense of MIDI cables and the extra work involved if I get everything through the HD 500 anyway.  Cheers.

No, the update doesn't give you any additional benefit if you're using the DT25 only with the HD500.

Not necessary, but is worth it in my opinion just for those times you want to play somewhere and not bring an extension cord for your Pod and all that jazz. Load the amps you want into the DT and grab and go. Heck, buy a cable at guitar center, update it and pick your 8 amps, and then return the cable.

Thanks guys for a very quick response and suggestions. 

 

I use a lot of effects on the HD aswell so would always use that rather than just 8 amps in the DT.
