  1. Anyone know if Line 6 are still replacing these free of charge? Im on my third on my third free replacement that’s gone faulty or bite the bullet and buy new version?
  2. To answer my own question on the Sony rf895... latency not an issue but horrible whine sound when plucking strings. back they go!
  3. Resurrecting this thread after some research , I see someone is using them, what about the Sony RF 995, 985 and 400 (all the same) definitely will work with only 1-2ms, only question is quality? currently use ATH M40X so expectations are high
  4. Have to say I have only used with iOS. Tbh having previously owned a Fender GT40 with Bluetooth dropouts, I’m more than happy to have a wired connection. Also the amp charges the iPad which would have to be plugged into a wall socket anyway, so I consider it a bonus not a negative. Also unlike Spark you can go completely wireless as you have a screen to scroll through patches plus built in wireless guitar. Also there’s a foot switch. I do agree about the G10 and wish I’d never ‘upgraded' it and got reduced playing time! considering the bigger and more powerful V60 is actually cheaper the spark, even with constant discounts, it also overpriced imho
  5. Currently have both (V60), and to me the Spider is in a different league. Obviously it’s size and power is greater and it sounds like a proper amp compared to a desktop speaker but even the tones are better. To give the Spark a chance I even played it through the V60 speakers and leave the Spider on full range, but even then it has inferior tones. I thought the Spark would benefit from its cloud available song specific tones but even then I can always find something better. This was main reason to buy and its disappointing. The smart features are app specific and there are better apps available for playback and learning. The only reason I can see to keep is the hope that PG will continue to support and improve it. Plus it’s better at playing backing tracks than the Spider. Given the hype ( unlike the spider i can’t find a negative review on it) it’s very disappointing!
  6. Is it possible to pair a transmitter with 2 receivers. That is one in the Spider V60 and a stand-alone one for another amp? So theoretically you can play both amps simultaneously? ps if you’re reading this and know about the usb failure what is the best fix as I’ve seen many cheers
  7. DIY mod requiring soldering skills. Will provide info if allowed
  8. anybody got a copy of the original MKii firware backed up? cheers
  9. i have been able to rollback the firmware as some kind guy had a copy will let you know how it performs from now on
  10. Oops...looks like I need the firmware for the G10 not the Amp all archived firmware has been removed. Possibly safety but a never had a problem with overheating and now find my playing time reduced at least by half ☹️
  11. Can someone point to the previous firmware please? since updating to 2.02.2 the battery life of my g10 has dropped dramatically! thansk
  12. Copied from a post I’ve started on Facebook Any techies here? Trying to mod the wireless receiver on V60 and up. Ideally put in and out jack sockets on back of amp. With a looping cable would work as normal but could plug into out from the receiver to send to other amps or even inserting pedals to take better advantage of the wireless system. Had a look at the ribbon cable connecting the receiver to the main board and there are far more wires than I expected to see. Thought there’d be just an Earth, power and RX. But it’s far more complicated. Can’t see line 6 supplying any wiring diagrams. Don’t suppose anyone has seen any? Cheers
  13. Can this be done via firmware update? ie hold down button x and turn Master volume to control MP3 input? think it’s been requested a few times? cheers
  14. WOW!!!! Just updated and it’s like a wet towel has been removed from over the speaker! Listening to my own patches selecting classic over full range speaker is incredible Well done Line 6 and I’m almost embarrassed to ask but can we have the speaker selection available through the app? Pretty please
  15. Just heard the great news so when will the firmware be available?
  16. Thanks but it’s really up to Line 6 to sort this
  17. My problem is not custom tones but just loading the app and accessing my OWN tones stored on the server. About eight connection error warnings when loading the app. If I delete a tone it comes back on reloading the app? pain especially as constant reloading is necessary due to amp connection issue when in background mode
  18. Yes same as me. whenever I load the app I have to ok at least half a dozen prompts relating to failed I cloud updates before use. Dont recall this fault before last iOS update and need a fix quickly! ps I’m still awaiting a fix for not being able to return to the app after it’s been in background mode. Locks up and again needs reloading, made worse now by the constant error messages popping up. this is bordering on unusable Line 6! please fix
  19. Get this warning whenever changing 'my tones'. numerous pending updates to cloud
  20. Problems syncing with cloud since update. Says connection errors Anyone else notice this? only cure is delete and reinstall app
  21. Not sure what you’re after? You can use the spider V as an input to an iPad to play amplitube tones and effects. Wirelessly if using a G10.
  22. So it basically controls the 'amp' volume rotary control knob?
  23. Apologies as already asked on Spider Forum can someone kindly answer whether the expression pedal ,when set to volume, only controls the amp tones and not any music via the aux in or via the usb to iPad ? thanks
  24. When used for volume does it just control the master volume? in other words if you have an MP3 playing on aux in does it continue play. So just muting the guitar tone?
