Amplifi 30 or THR10 - help me decide

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I'm looking for a small combined PC speaker and amp for my office. I play all sorts of styles and would use it to save getting all my gear out when I just need a quick practice to get a tune in my head.

 

They both look like good units. Any reasons why one beats the other?

 

Thanks

Both are solid units. Amplifi is primarily controlled through bluetooth via a free android/iOS app, THR10 is controlled like a traditional amp. With Amplifi you will get more amp and effects models overall. Through use of the app Amplifi also has jam tracks, tone matching to songs, and you can upload and download tones from the cloud. Playing back music sounds great on Amplifi 30 with its built in 4 speaker system.  You can download the app for free and check it out to get a general idea of how the app is used to control Amplifi.

Thanks for your response AD. I'm really looking for some user feedback from others who have had the same dilemma. Interesting that no-one yet has replied telling me how great the Amplifi 30 is.

 

I'll ask the same question on a THR forum and see what response I get...

not having the same dilemma, but I can tell why I'd pick Amplifi over THR10 - although in your case (you mentioned PC speaker): why not go software only and use Overload's TH3 (and some regular pc speakers/monitors)?

 

Back to question:

Pros of THR10:

  • when using as usb interface allows to record both DI as well as the emulated sound, this is definitely a plus and allows for reamping easily.
  • simpler controls on the device itself for the basic effects

but that's it - pros for Amplifi:

  • allows use of pedalboard
  • bluetooth streaming/the app & the jamtracks (having to use the app (or for that matter one of the higher-end floorboards) to dial in more than the four presets in bank 1 can also be considered a con, if you don't already own a compatible tablet/smartphone)
  • tone search (don't have to fiddle dialing in a suitable tone  yourself, others likely have done that already, so just download an existing preset) and unlimited/stored-in-the-cloud presets in addition to the 100 you can store to the hardware
  • more versatile (more effects/amps/cabs/virtual mic-placement options)

I got the TT though, as I either use headphones or my big home stereo... If I were to get one with speaker, I'd likely pick the Amplifi 75 - with that I'd be comfortable standing on the floor, while with the 30 you likely want it sitting on your desk.
