I’m looking to replace my college gear setup. Heres what I currently own:
Roland MicroCube
Digitech RP355

What I really need from a new setup is this:
Plug into PA for gigs / jam
Quiet practice in apartment
Decent enough tone
Range of tones / effects

I like my gear, but my Roland is dying on me, and the digitech doesn’t sound as good as I’d like. Basically I play for a college club, and I just plug whatever I have into a PA.

While looking around online, the Yamaha THR10 seems like a jack of all trades! Aside from “tube” tone (which I’m not in the market for), it has nearly everything. I’ve seen it used for under $200, and really interested.

I was considering a Line 6 POD HD300 along with studio monitors, but I really like what the Yamaha THR10 offers, especially the battery operation (which I use occasionally in my existing Roland MicroCube). But, will the Yamaha work well through a PA? (running out of the headphone jack)

Well I've heard the THR sound nice in recordings, with the sound coming from the usb output, so probably the sound coming from the headphones output will be acceptable.
I haven't managed to make it sound good myself though, the speakers are just not good enough to reproduce that kinda stuff at appreciable volumes.

I'd get a used POD HDsomething plus a pair of ATH-M50.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I guess spambots are now capable of reading minds.

I like both the Pod and Vox Tonelab LE for Digi-modeling direct live. Never used a Yamaha.

To clarify, The new amp will be used at my apartment for quiet practicing, I don't want it loud.

I have a pair of really good headphones already too btw.

I guess I really just want to hear from someone that owns a Yamaha THR10 on how practical it would be to run it straight into a PA system.
