Try plugging a stereo jack plug (with two mono leads attached!)in to the headphone in, on the Pod,

If you are lucky enough to have two amps(set them both pretty much flat) plug the two mono leads into the front Gtr inputs,Gtr into the pod set the master on the Pod at around 4 (10 o'clock)and use the studio direct not amp front or power amp setting....i am getting a great sound with this set up!................... At last!!!

any questions please ask.

glad it works for you... but that sounds like an awful idea! the headphone amp would likely add tons of noise...

i'd just use the 1/4" outs and set it to studio direct if thats what i liked.

Hi real zap.

Give it a go you might find it is cool for you too!

No it's not noisy at all......i have a Mesa Boogie MKIII (1983) and a Peavey back stage,have tried setting up all ways, and this turned out great.

Don't knock it till you have tried it.

Cheers

great sound from the Pod HD 500 and a DT25 using L6 link.  crank the Master on a DT 25 or Dt 50, use a Amp pre, and turn the volume on the patch to a usable level for stage or home and save it. with the tubes cooking in the amp,  the whole rig sounds tons better clean or balls! this really works. with the master turned down the distortion seems to sound fizzy! this fixes that problem. just ringing clean sounds and singing lead sounds.

Before line6 was called line6... they used to do r&d for other companies like alesis + others. and when those customers came to visit the offices of line6 (before it was called line6) and the receptionist needed to warn all the guys who were designing products for other companies (and for themselves... ) who were like 'in the back' the receptionist would announce over a tannoy 'tellephone call for 'fred smith' on line 6' the cunning part was that they only had 5 telephone lines, so it was the secret code for "hide your sh1t the feds are comin'" or "someone's coming, let's hide these PODs that we aren't going to release for another few years so they don't see them"
