I might be a sucker. I thought the the V-Amp Pro looked better from the
user interface perspective that the Line6 pods, not to mention that a
V-Amp Pro was cheaper than a Pod Xt (let alone the Pod Xt Pro).
However, I couldn't get my hands on a V-Amp Pro to try out, so I
chickened out and bought the Pod Xt since I loved playing with it at the
local music store.
It is very nice, but the knobs are somewhat irritating. They aren't
continuous rotary encoders, and so if a knob is high and the parameter
is low, if you want to boost the level a little, you actually turn the
knob down since the knob position has no relationship to parameter
position until you start editing the parameter. I thought that AES/EBU
output would be nice, but in the end I run the Pod Xt into USB on my
Mac, so I don't miss that feature so much. I do still think that rack
mount would have been nicer though.
