    I'm looking for something like the Suhr Iso Line Out box, but with optional speaker simulation. Anything like that on the market?

    Thanks for your time!

    The Palmer PDI-03 JB looks good, but no phase reversal... D'oh!

    I saw the Suhr ACE, but it looks like the phase reversal and ground lift are ONLY for the XLR output, which doesn't help me...

    That new Load + IR box looks awesome, if not overkill for what I need... Then again, could come in handy.

    Does the Load IR have phase reversal and ground lift? I'm not seeing that on this photo, but could be there.

    Maybe the two-Notes Captor? As well as being a load box, it's a DI w/ phase reversal, ground lift, XLR out, and an optional speaker sim.

    If you'll always use a speaker sim there are more options- Bluguitar Blubox (fixed IRs but excellent), Radial JDX, etc.

    If you don't care about phase reversal, H&K Redbox, etc.

    What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

    I should have provided this earlier, thanks for asking!

    I'm using this to tap off my dry amp, feeding my wet effects and on to a wet amp. Thing is, I never know what the wet amp will be (guitar, FRFR, in/out of phase).

    Just to clarify, looking to get a line out from the amp.

    I haven't seen exactly the box you're looking for, but the Captor is close. You can use it without the load box (just use the cabinet through) and then you get a DI with optional phase shift and optional analog cab sim, which would be fine for wet FX. Plus it's not that expensive.

    That said, it might be easier to go with a two-piece solution. Get the Suhr line out (has the the options you need), and then find a cheap cab sim box, of which there are tons (ie.g. Blubox, ACE, Aiken Gold brick, etc.). Then you can pick and choose when you need it.

    Then don't compromise, get the Suhr Line out, and a decent separate cab sim, there's plenty options from analog ones like ADA and Suhr A.C.E and etc and various IR solutions.

    The ACE, gets my vote. I’ve have it for about a year now and LOVE it! It replaced my Two Notes CAB. Sounds great!

    For the ACE users:

    I see the ground lift and phase switch only work on the XLR output... Can you use that XLR output to feed effects pedals and on to a wet amp? Is it the correct level and impedence?

    I think @Husky can answer that. :)

    Quite different. Suhrs Iso line out can feed any processor. The Palmer is a DI and needs a mic preamp before it can be processed.

    Oh really? Is this an impedance issue?

    This is from the manual:

    4 BALANCED This XLR output provides a transformer balanced feed of the frequency compensated signal for DI. Connect the XLR socket to the microphone input of a mixing console, recording gear or soundcard using a quality microphone cable.

    5 UNBALANCED This ¼” output provides an unbalanced feed of the frequency compensated signal, e.g. for further processing. Use a quality ¼” plug instrument cable to connect this jack to any outboard equipment.

    It seems the 1/4" channel would be good, but I may be wrong.

    The new Two Notes Torpedo M is exactly that.

    That thing looks seriously awesome, but I fail to see a phase switch, which is wildly important to me.

    And now @peter_heijnen has got me all worried about impedance...

    Sorry my bad, the 03JB has a unbalanced output, so that will work. Impedance is low, 600 ohms, Saul Good.

    The phase switch is only imprtant if the dry and wet cabs are out of phase. You can reverse one of the two cab's phase and it's fixed. However with rental backline you just have to hope it's all good.
