    Oh yeah. Super simple and sounds great. It’s perfect for me.

    I kind of shied away from using the EQ and comp sections for years, but now I have them always on. Really shapes my tone and makes it sound really polished (to my ear, at least).

    Mine is simple and easy, just a 6120 and the THR10. Hanging on the wall my Martin 0-28, my Spanish guitar and out of pic an Epiphone Century Zenith Archtop. Also out of pics, my wife's wall piano and my daughter's cello:

    My wife let's me do my thing. Amps for the jam area of the living room are both Boss. A JS-10 & a Katana 50. I have 5 guitars and my mandolin in there. 20210502_082511.jpg

    Living room set-up? Pretty basic in my case but it's a semi acoustic so makes plenty enough noise for me. There's a Blackstar idCore 10 lurking in the background if I ever need to plug it in.

    All the live gear is in the garage, hope to get it out again soon.

    I never will understand setting up in living rooms or bedrooms. Been playing since 1957 and have never played in either. Basement, den, music room, garage, yes. Bedroom or living room? Never.

    The only thing to understand is that some people live in apartments - without basements, dens, music rooms, or garages.

    My living room setup is a Trademark 30 and a NUX MG300.
    I run the MG300 into the return loop which completely bypasses all the controls on the TM30.
    Show in the background is my LPDC.
    The MG300 is new to me and I am very impressed at how good it sounds and how easy it is to program after an initial learning curve.
    All in all, the best inexpensive setup I've found.
    I will follow up with more on the MG300 after I time to learn it better.

    At one corner in our living room, I have an acoustic, a small PA, and a Zoom G1On. I like using the looper on the G1On. However, I rarely use this rig. I only grab the guitar when an idea comes up on my mind.

    I mainly use my studio in the basement to play and record ideas. My apologies for the mess:

    My living room is acoustically treated for my home theatre set up and I can easily play back CDs, etc to jam along with/practice our band set list through the HT system. When my wife goes out, or is using another room it take a few seconds to turn the gear on and grab whichever guitar is on the stand. It's a multipurpose room, but since it's all hidden away (apart from one guitar on a stand) then it's not impacting the look of the room for day to day use.

    I'd rather play through my 2x12 at a decent level than my headphones set up in the spare bedroom/music room, though I do use that if my wife and son happen to be watching something on the TV in the living room.

    I also use the Quilter 101 Mini and notice I use almost exactly the same settings as you. You run the master a little louder than I am comfy doin at home. Nice!
    (this is not setup in the living room unfortunately, but in a spare room)
