    Low volume using HD500x with DXR10

    I set the DXR10 to mic level, and it made a huge difference. Thanks for the help.

    Low volume using HD500x with DXR10

    Thanks a lot. I'll test that out when I get home.

    Low volume using HD500x with DXR10

    I have a HD500x hooked up to a Yamaha DXR10, using an XLR cable. I have the master volume at 3 o'clock with channel levels typically around 3 o'clock, as well. I have to turn the volume on the DXR10 up to about one o'clock, just to get to decent Madison Square Living Room sound levels. If I use a Kemper, through XLR, set at -15db I can barely touch the volume on the DXR10 to get to a decent sound level. Same thing if I hook my cell phone up to the 1/4 input. I can put the volume on my phone at max, put the DXR10 at about 8 o'clock, and have it shaking the floor. I have no issue with the HD500x through the Line 6 DT25, using Line 6 link, so I'm 99% sure that I'm doing something wrong, but I can't quite figure out what. Does anyone have any possible idea as to why my levels are so low, using the HD500x with the DXR10? Thanks.

    Best cable for Line 6 link between HD500x and DT25

    Thanks everyone.
  5. I saw some older posts talking about various cables for the Line 6 link. I was wondering if there was any newer info on this. I am currently using a cheap Hosa EBU-010 AES/EBU Digital Audio Cable. I don't have any problems with it, but every time I look at how thin it is, I wonder if using something higher end, such as Mogami Gold AES would work better. Anyone try some of the various higher end cables? Thanks.

    New DT Firmware for new HD500 firmware

    I would love to be able to put the new JCM800 directly on my DT25. I usually use it with the HD500x, but sometimes I just plug in.

    Brit 2204 vs J800

    Someone on another forum shared this. It is a little heavier than I was expecting for a JCM800 demo, but still sounds pretty good to me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3INcSvDm6NA#t=16

    I haven't been able to find a comparison video. How do the two models compare?

    DT25 Combo: Absolute Beginner Questions

    Are you using this with a HD500? With a HD500x, I can get good tone with the DT25 head volume at 9 o'clock, the master volume on the HD500 at 1 o'clock. To me, it is acceptable volume for bedroom levels, between 11:00 am and 9:00 pm. I wouldn't play it like that when my neighbors were trying to sleep, but it is fine for daytime volume. I have used it without the HD500 and can get acceptable volume and tone as well, but don't remember the settings off the top of my head. I prefer my distortion coming from the preamp and the warmth coming from the tubes, but different people have different preferences. If you really want power tube distortion at very low volumes, I would think you would want a 1 watt or 5 watt tube amp, or an attenuator.

    HD500x CD/MP3 In with DT25

    That is what I thought the documentation meant. Thanks for the confirmation.

    HD500x CD/MP3 In with DT25

    I am running the HD500x connected to a DT25 head, using the Line 6 Link. If I plug a device into the CD/MP3 in of the HD500x, there is no sound. Is there supposed to be sound or does this only work with other outputs on the HD500x? Thanks.

    DT25 Combo vs Head/Cab

    I haven't been able to play as much as I would have liked to, since I got this, but I like it so far. It seems built very solid, looks nice, and plugged directly into the amp, I can get some really good tones pretty easily. I put Midi Commander on my phone and used it to test out the different preamps. The main issue that I have is replicating the sounds of the direct-to-head setup when I have the HD500x hooked up to the amp. I know that the sounds are in there, I just need to do some reading, video watching, and experimentation to come up with some more sounds that I like. I tried downloading some of the DT and preamp only patches from line 6, and haven't had much luck with that route. I'm sure that once I spend more time on this, it will work out better, but I knew this when I bought it, so it's not really a complaint.

    What cable from hd500x to dt25

    I used a cheaper Hosa one, and have had no issues with it, but you may need a longer length. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000NE8FZ0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    DT25 Combo vs Head/Cab

    Thanks everyone. I decided to go with the head and cab, because of all of the helpful information on here and another forum. Plus, I REALLY wanted the head/cab, and for that kind of money I didn't want to feel like I settled for what I kind of wanted instead of what I really wanted. Thanks again everyone.

    How hard is the tube change on the combo?
