    I really wasn't a fan of the recto model when I had an HD500. I haven't tried any of the competing modelers, so I don't have a recommendation for a specific one, but it may be worth looking around for something else, especially if you're getting it for recording purposes. As a preamp it was pretty good, but I struggled a lot to find a tone I liked, and by this point there might be better options out there.

    I used to have the hd500 and recall the recto being quite decent for what it was. Or maybe it was the Uber

    I came across a few folks complaining that the Eleven Rack's firmware had to be updated right out of the package and it was a total PITA to do so. Was that your experience too?

    I've been using a Line 6 for so long I'm just trending toward familiar at this point, and I'm ok at times with the tones I get now. Other times that "artificial modeler" sub-harmonic just gets on my last nerve - which is what I'm afraid I might find with the HD500x.

    And, right there, everyone's milage will vary.

    Cobra Commander has me intrigued by that 11 Rack, though. May need to switch gears and look at that.

    One thing the pod has which the 11r doesn't is the ability to run multiple instances of an effect type in any order - eg 5 delays into a reverb and back into nto another delay. But if you are a pretty standard signal chain sorta guy it shouldn't matter.sent

    Edit: also Leon recently picked up a gsp1101 - not a bad alternative to the pod, particularly of you are running 4cm. Give him a shout - not sure if he has ever compared it to a pod.
