AX2 212 as a poweramp?

No idea how neutral those are, but I suspect it's not really FRFR...I know you said you could get it "cheap", but those amps were introduced in the late 90's, if I remember correctly. Unless you're getting it for the price of a trip to Starbucks, I'd look at something from this century. There are a number of FRFR options now that won't break the bank that have become favorites around here... the Altos, the new Headrush cabinet, etc.

I had one of those AX2s for years. In fact mine was an "AxSys 212" that I upgraded to AX2 by swapping out the circuit board with the upgrade one.  Since the amp was tasked with reproducing a wide range of tones I'll bet it might do a good job as a Helix poweramp. I can understand wanting to know the answer before shelling out the cash, though.

 

As I recall it did a good job of putting out everything from super clean sounds to highly distorted ones, for its time anyways.
