I've been using a POD HD Pro X for a long, long time but I realize at this point I've outgrown it. Finally tired of fighting some of the units strange sounds. And of course because it is not a real amp, it has a little bit of dryness and sterility which is always present. I made an offer on a DSL5C. This amp did not exist when I was trying amps many years ago in my other apartment. But I think this will work out splendidly. And unlike the DSL15C this one has an effects loop. If anyone has one of these please post your experiences with it.
