they've re-worked the spider amps to include the rest of the parts:

as long as its not the
mobile in, err sonic port err.. mark III mobile gadget....
i think that'd be reinventing the turd though

Think of it as a Variax for speakers. Where the Variax guitar can emulate various guitar models with the turn of a knob, maybe this new amp can emulate various kinds of speakers by turning a knob.
What if you had an amp where you can emulate any kind of Celestion, Jensen, etc or combinations of them. Maybe you could emulate a 2X12, a half stack or full stack through one 12 inch speaker. Even better, you can combine(blend) various speakers. For example, two V30's and two blackbacks. It would be like having a head unit with almost an infinite number of cabinets.
I think the weak link with Line 6 modeling has always been the speaker/cabinet IR's, maybe Line 6 is about to introduce the next generation of IR's.

OK … I'll go out on a limb … I think it will be just a tube amp ….. nothing else, just tube pre and power amp, no efx … what a concept …. I mean … nobody's done that yet … right ???
They already did that with the Alchemist line...

Interesting. The DT amps are getting harder to find, but that's a weird opening slogan for a tube amp? "Let there be Loud"... I don't want a loud tube amp, I want a tube amp with TONE... which my DT25 seems to have in spades.
I agree with the stagesource speculation.

What I infer from the video is that there are two "entities" and the ability to blend between them. The first part of the video shows something like a Stagescape casing with a division between the left side (with red styling) and the right side (with grey styling). Maybe this is symbolism for a wet and dry version of a guitar signal or sound. The remainder of the video hovers around that big knob that has a volume indicator on one side and a blend indicator on the other. Looks like pushing in the knob enables blending the wet and dry signals? Now if I could just figure out what is being blended!

Might be a cheesy idea, but could this be a Stagescape-based amp with two channels, where each channel could be a separate modeled amp with its own speaker, but with the ability to blend the two together in stereo?
After a quick search, I didn't see any new patent disclosures from Line 6, so I'm thinking whatever this is, it likely isn't something far beyond what they already have technology-wise.
If you look at what we have today in the dream rig, we have a fully stereo signal in the HD500 with two separate amps, and we have the ability to connect multiple DTxx's or StageSource amps to achieve stereo. Maybe this is a way to reduce the load down to a single amp to carry around. Might also eliminate the latency in switching between different topologies, since each side would already be configured up front.

I think it's a blend between FRFR and regular amp. So you can use it for acoustics, vocals, or guitars.
