Does the AMPLIFi replace the DT series as the "amp of choice" for the Dream Rig?

not even close.

Amplifi is not affiliated or associated with any of the Line6 dream rig configurations.

It's more a practice tool or home jamming independent amp.

As a 'Dream Rig' owner who plays mostly small gigs I would have lept at the chance of buying an Amplifi if it had a Line 6 Link and allowed me to send acoustic sounds to the full range amp and electric sounds to the DT25.

Coming in Amplifi v2?

Amplifi is for playing in your bedroom.  (Ok maybe a small club)  It's not going to replace a DT25 or any of the LT speakers.

+1 to what those folks said! The DT amps really live in their own world compared with the rest of the Line6 amplifiers.

 

First, because it's a Bogner tube amp.

Second, because it has zero onboard FX.

Third, because it uses the Line6Link.

Fourth, because it's *really* expensive!!

Fifth, because it's the best my HD500 has ever sounded.

 

Though, as an aside to all of that, to me the AMPLiFi lives in a world much closer to the StageSource speakers, especially with that grill design; they look similar. The StageSource speakers are really quite nice, even at very low volumes.

 

I have been working on an alternate rig to my standard HD500+DT25, and last night spent some time with the dual-rig idea. I use my JTV59, plug the VDI into the HD500, and run the XLR outs in stereo into my M20d. Then I also plug a 1/4" cable from the JTV into my ElevenRack, and also run that in stereo, using the XLR outs to the M20d. I then L6Link the M20d out to the two L2t's and configure them as stereo mains.

 

I use the HD500 to get the looper going, then dial through various combinations of patches on the HD500 and patches on the Eleven Rack.

 

I am still figuring out how I'd use this live, would likely end up needing to get a MIDI floor controller for the Eleven Rack, and when using the DT, I haven't quite figured out how I would route everything.
