Connecting POD HD 500X to CD/Mp3 AMP input
REI_ARTHUR posted a topic in POD HDHey guys. I'll be using and Marshall MG50CFX for some gigs and I was checking out Line 6 documents and found this option to connect the POD directly to the CD/MP3 input and bypass everything pre. Wich output from the POD should i use? The headphones out or one of the 1/4" outputs with an adapter plug ? If I should use the 1/4' cables, should i select "line" or "amp" level??? "Q: Can I bypass the preamp section of my amp to avoid stacking two preamps? A: Yes, There are two ways this can be accomplished. 1) If your amplifier has a CD/MP3 input you can go directly in the this jack from the POD output (This is a common method with the Line 6 Spider Series amplifiers). Be aware you may need to "trick" your amplifier input by using a 1/4" "dummy" plug in the instrument input to allow signal to pass to the speaker (headphone adaptors often work well for this purpose).
