    but in all seriousness, the THR10 is amazing! You can even modify it to put the output to a cab if you want.

    I've had my THR10 now for a few weeks, and I'm impressed with how versatile it is, tone and volume wise. Anid it's too easy just to pick it up and move to another location when needed.

    um something really cool that the THR can do. USB interface to the desktop...and then run the output of the PC to its speakers...so send the DI from the amp to...BIAS Amp and unlock limitless tones! Oh man so frickin cool

    Can you use the THR as the usb interface or do you need to buy a separate interface?

    You can use the THR as the interface although it's overkill if that's all you use the THR for.

    But the signal you send to Bias or other software will first go through the THR simulations right? So you use the clean channel to do it?

    At your DAW, you can specify a dry (unaffected) signal or one with an amp sim, so it can act as a true interface.

    Do you need a DAW for that? I use Bias (and Amplitube) standalone editions and not plugins with a DAW.

    It should be available under your input channel for whatever you're using (or at system level). The THR definitely sends a L/R dry and a L/R affected signal at the same time over USB, and that has nothing to do with the DAW.

    Best thing about the THR's is -- you can hide them in the kitchen, next to the toaster and microwave without being detected.
    whoot? who's been playing too loud? :confused::D

    I use Bias standalone as well. It lets you pick the active input. I unchecked the boxes marked THR L and THR R and only leave the ones that say DI checked.

    Don't get me wrong. The THR models are amazing. You can pull some awesome sounds from that little guy. I was just messing with some super high gain stuff and also playing with some FX I don't normally use.

    The 10 C is perfect for the living room for me. Solved. Also a really decent sound bar for devices .

    You have to be hooked up to the PC and editing software to use the compressor. I haven't used it much but thought it was pretty effective. You could save to a preset for when you're not connected.

    Amazing how much detail you guys can hear. To me it sounds decent. No where near a good amp, but for playing in my apartment it gets the job done. I have it, recommend it, but honestly couldn't care less if it is the 10 or 10c or ... :)

    The small katanas and cube are also good choices.

    I'm not familiar with the Yamaha Thr amps, but I know people love them.

    I use a Vox Mini5 Rhythm at home, and really like it.

    It has headphone output, aux-in for playing along with MP3's, a line-in for using a microphone (as a singer, this is important to me), and a built-in drum machine which sounds really good.

    It's a very fun & useful amp. Think it cost about EUR 150.

    For me it's the guitar that makes the difference with my 10C. I don't care much for the tele unless it's very clean. P90s are better but with humbuckers on a LP it does really sing!
