NAMM 2014: Line 6 Amplifi - Bluetooth Amp from Line 6 (Video)

Tone so good, it should be illegal?   26-Jan-14

    MP4 13:31 mins    

Before I start, Line 6 make some seriously cool stuff, don't get me wrong, but this one leaves a bit to be desired. Line 6 have dubbed this 'the guitar amp reinvented'. Now, I'm not much of a philistine but I'm not 100% sure the guitar amp needs reinventing, plently of companies are making incredible sounding amps using things like transisters and valves. Tone to me comes from saturating a valve to the point at which it can't quite handle it anymore and not from a microprocessor telling me 'this is what a saturated amp sounds like'.

It comes in two models, a 75w ($399) and a 150w ($499) and as a Bluetooth hifi system I can't fault it but the Amplifi app seems to have missed the mark.

Check out the video and listen for yourself but I'm not quite sold on this one.
