I'm wondering if the master volume on my DT50 is behaving normally. I am using an EMG81 active pickup plugged into the LOW input. I have the amp on topology IV and have the channel volume all the way up. When I slowly increase the master volume, I have to bring it up a bit before I suddenly get a loud signal. Before that threshold there is no signal (relative silence with no guitar signal). I turn the channel volume down and noticed the curve of the master volume's behavior is somewhat the same. I take it past the same (or very close) threshold and suddenly there is a healthy dose of volume. Is that normal behavior for everybody else's amp?
Hello, I purchased a SV MKII HD100 in summer of 2013 after following the advice of someone I shouldn't have! I did not use the amp much, it stayed inside my temp controlled home for the entire time, never left the house or used to gig. When I bought this amp, I noticed the CH VOL and MASTER VOL controls did not work as well as expected, they would take the amp from inaudible to blasting in a mm of a turn. I did not have the amp sent back for repairs as I was very busy at that time. Recently I decided to go ahead and sell this amp head because I don't need it anymore. This amp has less than 20 hours of total playing time on it. I fired up this amp and began playing thru it, the MASTER VOL doesn't work at all now, and the CH VOL is unusable because it takes the volume form 0 to blasting back to 0, with no inbetween. I took the amp head apart to find the PCB for the UI are corroided and many of the connections are lose or have falled lose. It looks as if this NEW amp I purchased had old PCB's in it. IOW, I was sold a new amp that wasn't new at all, The PCB' were old, falliing apart and moldy. This is unacceptable! I have pictures available and will attempt to attach them here. Had I know 3 years ago what I know now, I would not have purchased a Line 6 amp then or ever, I hope you have better luck with yours than I had with mine.
I use the UNBALANCED OUTPUT jacks to send my audio to the mixer, and I'd like to use the PHONES jack with headphones so I could hear myself. According to the manual, the MASTER vol controls all the levels: if I change the PHONES vol, the UNBALANCED OUTPUT vol will also be changed... is this the way it works? If so, the headphones are simply unusable in a live situation, since I have to redo my mixer level every time I change my MASTER vol! The X3 Live has a way to deal with this, can't the HD500X? Did Line6 remove this feature from a supposedly more advanced unit?! :o :o :o
