"Sometimes I use the pedal through the AUX input of the Cube (so the Cube is only a speaker for RP355) because the Cube is a digital amp and it doesn’t like pedals."

I found that in a review of the rp355 here on UG. Is that possible? Wouldn't that damage the unit or the amp? Or if it works, would it sound better than plugging the unit via guitar cable into the amp? Has anyone tried that?

Oops, I'm so dome. I put this in the wrong forum. Can a mod please close this thread? I'll just post it in the GG and a forum.

it makes the signal of the RP355 go through the amp untouched.
it is perfectly fine to do, and some prefer this method.

instead of running it through the amp's circuitry, the AUX goes straight to the speaker.

think of it this way:
look at the sun with sunglasses on (through the amp)- its going to color your vision (dirty the signal)
or look at the sun with your bare eyes (AUX input) - you see what is really there, no change in color (tone)

So would it sound better? Or would I have to try it?
