I quite like the roland cube, but for the same price I can get a Line 6 Pod. I'm not sure which would be better as im not sure how to use the pod. The pod seems like it offers alot more with possibly greater quality than the cube however do you need to plug it into an amp as you would a pedal, or can it be plugged into your computer (which i'd prefer) or headphones, eliminating the need for an amplifier.

I'm asking this because i've sold all of my gear and want to get back into guitar playing without spending a lot of money, so if it's possible to play electric guitar without buying an amplifier that would be great considering the main reason i sold my gear was because what i had was far too loud for bedroom practise.

edit: also what line 6 pod equipment available to me is this:

There is clearly a range of pricing and products. I'm after the mid-ranged gear. But what's the difference between say a "processor" or a "desktop direct interface"

I'd recommend the POD HD300, it offers a solid amount of effects and amp models to keep you busy for a very long time. You can plug it into the computer, or run it as a standalone unit with headphones depending on what you'd like.

A bonus about the HD300-500 allows you to record to a computer using the modeled amps in the unit.

I see you live in Sydney and your username is Oatley... You wouldn't happen to live in Oatley would you?

If you need an amp buy an amp, if you need a Pod buy a Pod.
