    This seems a little OTT for what I'm looking for, I'd prefer an all in one solution.

    If you're using modern high gain amps, it shouldn't be a problem. If you're using vintage-style amps that requires power amp dirt, then yeah, get a Torpedo Studio, Torpedo Reload, or that Boss Waza deal.
    Yeah, my sunn is my main and that's all about poweramp breakup. I've looked at the Waza and it looks pretty interesting even if it has a bunch of features I don't really need, on a similar note the UA OX looks, or rather sounds good but you're stuck with a lot of cabs I'd never use and I don't think you can add 3rd party IRs

    The Torpedo Reload is looking interesting though, it has an attenuator built in which is cool. As far as I can tell it just doesn't have the built in cab sims?

    The Torpedo Reload uses the same loadbox as the Torpedo Studio, just without all the IR loader and extra features. It also has a built-in DI and reamping capabilities. So if you're gonna do everything in your DAW, i think the reload is perfect for you.

    Torpedo reload is cool, but asd you said, no sims in it. Now, if you want an attenuator, that's cool, also is a reamp box.

    For recording though, youi'll ghet latency when running into it, then through a vst plugin to get the sound. And that is annoying.

    However, here's one for you, the THD hotplates have a max rating of 185w, so you could just find one of those for live use, they shouldn't be that expensive to find second hand.

    I couldn't get my Triple rec to work with the Torpedo Captor. It totally choked the tone of it, which it did not do for any of my other amps. The 150w cap on the new Boss expander was interesting for me, but when the price hit $1300 I said no to it.

    Maybe you can get two 100w attenuators, something electronically simple like the Weber's, and run two in parallel? That ought to cut the power. The voltage will be the same, but the current should halve. Please talk to an amp tech first before trying. This is a half-brained idea, and I'm a quart low on coffee and sleep

    The Rockcrusher is good for 120W. That means 120W RMS all day long.

    The Rockcrusher Recording has the same capability but also has an input power meter, meaning that you can crank all the way to 120W average (with up to 150W peaks) and know that you're not damaging the equipment. Plus you get all the recording outputs to give you an all-in-one solution.

    Plus, the Rockcrusher is absolutley kick ass and sounds awesome. And is purple.

    I've been watching far to many youtube videos on this shit, god I hate gear demos... I think I want the Boss as well now.

    I think this calls for an Ola Testing Shit series on direct/load boxes!
