Unlike the masses i'm going to tell you something: The Tonelab has tubes in it. The pod xt doesnt. That's enough for me to choose the lab. But make up your own mind. You really shouldn't rely on what any of us tell you. Try them both out.
This has been debated on several forums by guys who are sound engineers. Both are great at what they are built to do. Yes, the Vox has a tube pre. The price is more expensive and the upgrade path falls far short of what Line 6 offers. The vox wins on some cleaner amp models, the xt, with packs and version 2.01, wins on the high gain modellers. The choice should be made by what sounds best to the person who intendeds to buy either. I would personally go for the XT Live because it sounds great, is much cheaper than the vox and is less expensive than buying a pod xt then getting a shortboard for live playing. I don't think you'll be disappointed with either. They are all good. I just have to give Line 6 kudos for the constant upgrades and support for the XT line...

Not taking a shot at you Lydian, so don't get offended, but to simply chime in with the "going against the masses" bullshit just because it has a PREAMP tube in it is a bullshit answer and doesn't really help the guy. All these badboys cost between 300-600 bucks so a wise decision should be made before plopping down the hard earned cash. Of note, a new firmware release is due out any time now, v2.10, for the podxt to give it the same features of the XT Live. The LAST upgrade to the 2.x series gave us pod owners the SAME patches in their top of the line Vetta amp (a couple of grand alone). How the fuck is THAT for support of customers? Line 6 sets the standards, the others ride their coattails with cheaper copies of their tech. I returned the Vox after several days. I was more than willing to keep both but it just didn't sound better enuff to keep it.

He's talking about a modeller and it's not just from the preamp tubes but from all the tubes in the chain that you get your sweetass tube sound. If you want an amp you don't buy a modeller.

I never stated that the podxt was the BEST. I said best for the money as far as what they give you. Also, my statement to you wasn't a shot but quite valid, having used both products that he mentioned I can offer him some advise. You never stated you used either but just rattled off an opinion based simply on the fact that the Vox uses a single preamp tube. It looks like we're back where we started again, huh? You just cannot have it any other way than your own and you always have to go against the grain just to do so and for no other point. I guess at this rate it won't be long before your lovely charms piss the "masses" off again.

As stated numerous times, this forum is for AMP MODELLING.

I have a question though that just begs to be asked and it doesn't even concern amp modelling. Please tell me so I, and others, can understand the thought process. Why would you come back to hang out on a forum where everyone can't stand you? What is it with you and others like you that causes an unresistable need deep inside to hang amongst people who think you are a total twat?

Actually, direct your response to others because as of this writing you are on the ignore list, like before.

Once a twat always a twat. Eric should rethink his second chance policy...
