Line 6 is really well known for their amp modeling features with their pod units but as well as their actual combo amplifiers. This is one of the first line 6 modeling amplifiers that they put inside of a combo. Basically you have this combo amplifier with 16 and models to choose from. It allows you to program four programmable amp channels to select from on the fly. It's basically 100 W stereo amplifier that is including a foot switch as well.

SOUNDS


The tone of this amplifier is not very good. It sounds very fake processed and unnatural. When this amplifier was put out it was one of the first modeling amplifiers be put into the combo. So therefore the modeling industry was not where it is today with what line 6 is been able to accomplish and many other of him modeling technologies. The tone of this is not a very good tone and you probably wouldn't use it in any professional recording . It's not a sound that you're going on fall in love with if you've ever played a modeling amplifier, you can really tell that all it is doing is mimicking what notes are being played. It has no dynamics and the tone or the feel of the amplifier is missing. It doesn't feel natural whatsoever and overall is not a very fun or pleasing amplifier.

OVERALL OPINION

These amps have been discontinued for quite some time now. It only way you can find this is only used market and I would not suggest going with this amplifier. This is very old technology especially since it's a computer-based amplifier and technology has advanced quite some since this amplifier has been put out. I suggest going with one of the line 6 near models with the newer technology involved.
