Eviltwin you show me good solution, i would talk to you because you know well the 2120. can pass me some good urls for info about the 2120? and for you what is the best machine to buy in this setup.
A good source for info on the 2120 is this:
you need to sign up to yahoo first (if you haven't already)
BTW I own a GSP2101 which is similar in many ways, but the 2120 is slightly more sophisticated.
I'm not sure that I understand your question, are you still looking to hook up a separate preamp to use in stead of the preamp section in the 2120? If so the Triaxis is well respected, do a search on this forum for info. I you have that kind of money, you have other options too...try this list:
I do suggest that you try before you buy, putting anything in the FX loop will probably colour the sound, it won't be completely transparent. When hooking up different units you must also watch out for ground loops (which can cause humming etc.)
For example the Triaxis (or any other preamp) has an FX loop, you can also try to put the 2120 in the preamp's FX loop. (There are GSP2101 users on http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/GSP2101
who have done this)
So you can go:
- Guitar->2120 input ->
2120 FX send-> Triaxis input
Triaxis out->FX return 2120
2120 out-> Power amp
- Guitar->Triaxis input ->
Triaxis FX send -> FX return 2120
2120 out-> Triaxis FX return
Triaxis out -> Power amp
BTW If you're having trouble getting a good sound out of the 2120, you may not immediately get great tone with a unit like the Triaxis. It also has dozens of settings you need to tweak in order to get the desired tone. The general view is that many of the factory presets on the Digitechs are good for showing off the units capabilities, but are rather useless in real situations, the Triaxis' presets may be better, but it only has 10 factory presets
The poweramp will also colour the sound, you mention a Marshall 2x80W, I only know of the 2x20 2x50 and 2x100W rackmounted units, what is your poweramp exactly? http://www.marshallamps.com/product_...oductRangeId=8
