  1. Excellent reply - thank you. I appreciate that different PA speakers will have a different 'colour' from one to the other, all I want to do is get a fairly good 'neutral' (for want of a better word) feel at home when I programme the Helix - and so really the question was do I be a cheapskate and stick with just using the THR for that patch-tweaking, or will I get a better result using the HS5's (single or a pair) for that (after all, they're not crazy expensive) The main thing is size (smaller the better) and cost - we have a baby on the way! :)
  2. Any thoughts on the Yamaha HS5's, guys? I have so far been using my Helix with the aux in on my Yamaha THR 10 - and tbh it sounds great, with a fairly good stereo spread. However, although theoretically as far as I know the THR speakers are 'full range' (at low volume anyway I guess that is?) do you think they would colour the sound compared to say some powered monitors like the Yamaha HS5 speakers? So do I really need some 'proper' monitors, or will the THR do? What I don't want to do is set up all my patches at home using the THR, then plug in to a PA for a gig and think 'WTF??' :unsure:
  3. Personally I'd love to see a smaller FH amp - either as a combo or as a head and cab. So how's this for an idea - if there was such a thing as a FH cab you could plug in the matching FH head... ...OR your Helix, in which case the cab acts as a stereo FRFR speaker system, similar to the Gemini etc; so one cab would work with two different products...
  4. Seems a real shame that an amp with a wireless receIver built in neees a cable to connect the editing app!! Especially when it's big bro, the FH 1500 has Bluetooth; say you're at the front of the stage wanting to tweak your settings - are you supposed to get a 30ft Lightning cable?? Seems like a bit of an oversight to me - so my question is, is there any form of USB/Bluetooth dongle that will act as a replacement for the Lightning cable, and allow you to use the app from a distance (as opposed to a BT device that just streams sound)?
  5. Just seen the Andertons review of the Spider V, and seems that has the USB socket (but you can't use the app using Bluetooth with that amp, you can only edit when the tablet/phone is plugged in?)
  6. I have yet to decide between the FH and the Helix, but for me size is definitely an issue - so how about a HEAD AND CAB version? Or better still a Firehawk 1000?? (yep, made that up but a slightly smaller / lighter version would be a deal maker) Oh and how's this - awesome fun being able to use an app to deep edit, but not when you're iPhone battery is about to die. So how about a standard USB socket so you can charge your phone / iPad direct from the amp? Line 6, please take note of that last one!
