Jtv 59 Pod 500 Dt 50 With No Batteries?

Recommended Posts

Yes, if you use the Line 6 VDI cable, the JTV59 will draw it's power from the HD500, and the battery is not necessary in that case.

In case you missed this, yes this is the answer.  Use the VDI and you don'tt even need to have the battery installed.

You can also use the power supply and TRS cable that they sold for the older Variax but it's a bit on the expensive side.  If I did not have an HD500x and VDI cable, I would just use the battery.  I did that for the first  6 months I owned my JTV and I always used batteries in my original Variax 500.  One advantage to batteries is NO Ground Loops.  Batteries are the cleanest power you can get.  If I was running on batteries and playing out I would have a spare.

Besides battery-less operation the VDI offers a lot of other unique advantages:

-model+tuning+tone knob selection per preset

-pure digital signal

-HD500 parameters control thru JTV.
