    That would be quadrophonic, no?

    I ran my THR5 and Vox Adio simultaneously through an ABY pedal - sounded great, really filled the room! Completely defeats the purpose of a small amp both in terms of volume and space, but was definitely fun to try and a/b the two amps too.

    Well, four speakers anyway. I don't know about quadraphonic.

    I agree. Get something with a decent speaker and a headphone output of you only have one amp.

    I’ve had the opposite experience, which is funny. Maybe I forgot what my Fly sounded like after I parted with it but before I got my mini Katana, but to me the Katana sounds better. That said I’ve never done a side by side. I have wanted to try the THRs as well but the reality is I’ve never been in a place where they have all of these portable ones around to try to I just bought one. personally I think they all suck and it’s really a question of what sucks the least. I don’t think guitars were meant to play on less than a 10” speaker. But we probably can all agree on that.
