Yep, I just sold my Line 6 Pod XT Pro yesterday. Was a very nice rack unit, and I just dropped 200 bucks on a new foot controller for it like 2 months ago. But after a lot, and I mean a lot, of A/B comparison in the same rig with my tube preamp, well it had to go. And, at that point I was only using it in my effects loop, with no active amp or cabinet settings on, only for the various effects combinations and reverb, with a 50/50 wet/dry mix on my effects loop.
Just turning on the unit, with no effects or anything activated, produced a noticible hit on my tone that was a bit more thin with some loss of the low end. So out it went on Craigs list and with the replacement revenue I'm hot on the trail of a Boss OC-2 octave, an MXR-Phase 90 or 100, an MXR-distorton + and maybe an MXR carbon copy delay.
I know there is a ton of information on this thread on older vintage vs reissue pedals, and Boss relative to MXR, so I have some weekend reading to do and some deal searching on eBay and Craigslist.
Any additional insight would be greatly appreciated - these will add to the Q-tron I already have.
