Hi there,
I'm in the process of crossing over from a combo amp to a POD HD Desktop and was wondering what kind of speakers would be suitable for playing at home? Not sure I want to go through my amp as it may affect the sound quality, so I've been looking into speakers. I already have computer speakers, but I don't think they would be very good..and a PA speaker might be too loud? Never used anything other than combo amps up until now, so I'm a little lost lol. I have like a $250 budget, but I'd prefer not to even spend that much as I just bought the POD and a new 7-string. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance

Do that. If you're practicing, sound quality doesn't matter too much. Just turn off cabinet simulation, since you'll be playing through an actual speaker: hold "View", go to page 4, and change it to "Combo Pwr Amp". And use a clean channel on the actual amp, of course.

Well it would mainly be for practice, but I do intend on recording as well. My amp is a Peavey Vypyr 75 modeling amp so I'm not sure I can turn off simulations? I do live between 2 houses so I might end up buying speakers anyways if the amp is at once house and I'm at the other

Then record via USB. That's part of the point of getting a Pod.

Just set the amp to a clean channel. You're turning off the Pod's cabinet simulation, not the actual amp.

Alright sounds good. You could probably tell I had no idea what I was doing lol. Thanks very much.
