i'm running my hd500 into my boogie dc5 combo. i'd like to use the dc5's tone and use the stereo effects of the hd500 in stereo. right now, i primarily run the hd500 effects only, no modeling - i'm in love with the boogie tone and haven't found an equal in the models. how do i set up the loop from the hd500 to 2 amps? do i run the single hd500 send into a TRS with 2 1/4" cables out of the single TRS to the 2 amp's loops? thanks...

You'll need a Y cable (TRS to 2 x TS), as the HD500's loop out is a stereo TRS but you'll need mono TS inputs for your amps.

Careful with the effects you use as well, as some of them will sum to mono.

Another option is: guitar - pod HD500 input - pod HD500 send - Dc5 input - Dc5 send - pod HD500 return - pod HD500 L/mono output - Dc5 return....then pod HD500 R output to 2nd amp`s return

thanks alexis, that worked out great for the stock hd500 stuff, got stereo! i don't have a loop on my second combo, but went into the front of it. like the 4 cable method, i lose the boogie tones using this tho.
