timmyo Posted March 15, 2017 Share Posted March 15, 2017 I arranged to try all of these side by side today using Helix. In terms of sounding and feeling most like playing an amp, the Atomic CLR was very *slightly* the nicest sounding. It is also Â£999 here in the UK, and is quite heavy (I was shifting them around in the shop while I tried them and it became clear that weights vary enormously among these) Next I tried the L2t - I was a bit disappointed with it - spec-wise I love it and thought it would be the one I went for, but whatever mode I put the DSP in it was less pleasant sounding (to me than the others). It's also still pretty heavy. I the pop-put legs are fantastic though :-) Then the DXR10 - this was really nice - clear, even, flattered both clean and drive sounds. A slightly different sort of sound to the CLR but I liked it. Noticeably lighter than the previous 2. DBR10 - sounds very similar to the DXR10, so I started A/Bing them - the DXR sounded like it had a slightly clearer, more extended response (I am wording this badly) - so the DXR sounded just a bit 'nicer' than this DBR. The lightest of the bunch. In the end I chose the DXR10 - they only had the shop model so I have one on order, arriving next week. The Line6 is the only one I wouldn't have been happy owning which surprised me - I wanted to like it! Everyone has different tastes I suppose, but the DXR10 gets a big thumbs-up from me.
