    If you have a Micro Cab II you can feed an amp level signal into it but you need a load for the amp's output transformer.

    Most DI boxes will take a speaker level and convert it to line level but you will do serious damage to your amp unless you run a speaker load, like a Hotplate.

    H&K Redbox - can be had used for around $50. Needs a load on it, however.

    Works pretty well, IMHO.

    a countryman DI has the speaker in feature. as does my Avalon U5.

    and heed Unburst's words. HEED THEM I SAY!
     
  5. If you want to record silently [with the deluxe speaker muted] you WILL need the hotplate, since it has both speaker-->line conversion and load box features.

    If you intend tokeep the deluxe speaker on, something like the H&K redbox will work.

    If you have money to burn, check out www.motherload.co.uk

    :D
