    Not sure is the right forum, but I hope so.
    I need to find a solution for night practicing in an apartment that can reasonably allow to evaluate the tone of pedals and amp as I do not have many chance of performing sound tests during the day sue to work.

    It is some times that I am thinking about something that can get the signal from the tube amp output (or from the line output of the hotplate) and drive it (in a acceptable way) to an headphone... Basically a "cab simulator/headphone amp" combo. I already have a THD hotplate that can work as load and will provide me a line-out signal.

    I saw that the new Mooer Radar should do exactly what I need, i.e. it can be used (also) as a cab simulator connected to the line out of the THD used as load and then connected to the headphone directly. Moreover it should allow direct recording too, but that is another story.

    In short, the configuration would be:
    Tube Amp (champ)=>load/Line-out (THD hotplate)=>Mooer Radar=> headphone

    What do you think? Other products that could fit in as alternative? (i.e. perform amp cab simulation and headphone amplifier at the same time).

    Suggestions and thought are welcome.

    Looks interesting, too bad the editor is PC only

    well. you can select 30 cabs, 4 power amp, 11 mikes, and the eq without the PC... not a few...
    The torpedo is too expensive for my aim

    I emailed support at Mooer about Mac software, and they just replied that there will be a Mac editor for Radar by the end of the year.

    Nobody had the chance of using it yet? I would be very curious of some hands-on opinion... especially about the headphone output.

    Finally I decided to buy... It should arrive in a few days. If someone is interested I will keep you informed.

    Why use the amp at all? Just go into your pedals, to the Radar and then to headphones.

    By now I will go to my 5F1 then to a thd Hotplate in load configuration that should give me the lineout, and, finally, I will enter the radar and go streight to the hearphones. Next could be a "pedalboard preamp" but, by now, is not part of the project.

    @Lupo did you get the Radar and had time to take it through its paces?

    @Alamo Not yet, unfortunately. I ordered but the shop is still waiting for them
