Hey I got my self a Pod X3 live today and it sounds awesome going DI and through headphones but....it sounds crap as through my yamaha dg80 210a

was wondering what a good amp would be for a pod x3 live, I read other forums and they said atomic amps are awesome but I live in australia so it's pretty hard for me to get one of them from the US, I called Billy Hyde and suggested; crate, fenders, or a line 6 flexitone.

NOOO! stay away from brittish voiced amps for sure. go with the most neutral sounding amp you can find. if the direct out sounds good to you you could even use a small PA setup to amplify it. ive heard of people using acoustic or even keyboard amps with amp emulators they like with good results. just find whatever colors the sound with its own character the least.

Atomic Amps are supposedly awesome, but a PA or Keyboard amp can work well too.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

I disagree. i like my POD XT Live better through the Valve junior then anything else I've tried including PA's.

Does anyone have experience with running an X3 through a keyboard amp or something like that, or does anyone know how to get an atomic amp to Australia?

you can just find a cheap tube amp and run the pods out/outs into the effects loop return

Keyboard amps work well i can attest but not as well as an Atomic. Keyboard amp is definatly the second choice if you cant get an atomic to OZ. Id sell you mine but shipping half the world away will be pricey as you like.
