I've been connecting my HD500 directly to the guitar input (via 1/4" out) of my Trademark 30 amp and then taking a direct XLR out from the Trademark into the house PA. I've looked at trying the 4 cable method but it does look at bit overcomplicated and probably provides more flexibility than i really need. I've just thought - what are your thoughts on connecting the Pod to my amp's effects return loop instead - that should bypass the amp's pre-amp (if I'm right) and I could then use the Pod's XLR direct out to the PA and use the Trademark as a stage monitor (the Pod's direct out sounds better to me than the amp's).
Has anybody tried this? Does it work? etc. Thanks for your help!
