It likes the impedance reduced when using the line out. I've been slaving my MCI to a Roland SDE 1000 through an HH M900, out to 2 Marshall cabs. No loop and I don't want to mess with how great it sounds as is....the M900 is the same as the V800 but fewer in/out options and no VU meters. Sounds great...but I noticed some tone suck from the dry cab which is just coming straight out of the Wizard speaker jack. On a RTers suggestion I reduced the impedance on the amp to 8 ohms and that helped a ton. Just a tip for anyone if they notice a little tone suck if they are slaving...My cabs are Marshall 16 ohm mono.

Interesting... makes sense, though, if the line out is coming off of the speaker jacks. I have a few amps that have line outs that do come off the speaker jacks, so I'll have to try that with those. Thanks for the tip!!

I run my wizards dry into a 16 ohm cab, wet cabs using the line-out. I haven't noticed any tone suck when using the line out. I'll try the lower impedance and see if I notice a difference

Ineptocracy - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

It's pretty minor, not that noticeable but it's there.
