After contacting Yamaha USA in CA I solved (for me) the problem with the TRS FX loop jacks on the THR100HD...Hi guys, I am also interested in purchasing one of these things. But I am unsure because I need a good effects loop for my looper pedal and I am not sure that the Yamaha can give me that as some people have complained about problems with the effects loop. Can somebody please elaborate as to what exactly is the problem with the effects loop on the unit? Also, what are the special cables involved? I don't know if those type of cables are widely available.

Please find my entry in this thread re: TRS>mono cables or adapters to use (#1513 in this thread): this works for me or PM me for any further support/help.
Just curious, what was the problem with your amp? User error? Production fault? Repaired? Replaced?... I am probably going to buy a THR100HD online from another country and just scared to have issues..Well folks, after a few hiccups but with help from Stompboy (cheers, mate) and GAK I now have may amp.
I can't imagine the sales would be too big in the US, because as far as I know -- they are only available at one retailer (without a public showroom). No clue what it's like across the pond....I wonder how these amps are selling ? Any big name users yet ? I'm really getting into mine and making better sounds every time I plug in. I'm using mainly the Lead and Modern settings. I'm finding that the boosts are crucial to fine tuning the sound. Great amp.
Yamaha have specifically not modelled any amps here. Hence there is no Marshall or vox settings. What you do is pick your setting, valves and class. Then work in a approximation of what you think that amp sounds like. They have given you a selection of settings and valves that are commonly used on the 'named' amps that everyone knows. So you should in theory reproduce the sounds from many different amps.Stompboy question - the inspirations for the various amps are well indicated in the manual. Crunch is Vox, Lead is Marshall etc. What's behind the Modern sound - Boogie, Soldano ?
Saw the waza stuff as well launched this week. Rediculously expensive. And folks complained that the THR was off price point.Waza ****? The other solidstate amp just announced, costing much more, only has me more convinced that the THR100HD is what I need. Good job Yamaha!
Just have to find a lightweight 1x12 or 2x12 to pair with it. Should I worry about Neodynium speakers not delivering enough volume? I've read comments in this thread that it doesn't seem loud enough with some cabs and speakers.
A Traynor YCS90 2x12 combo I owned had great sounds and was indeed lighter than similar 2x12's, but the neo speakers in it were definitely less efficient. I really had to crank the thing.
