Line6 Pod HD Pro or chipest Axe ?

So, what should i buy? I want be able to play silent with headphones and want decent sound. I like Pod HD Pro sound, but what about fiillings? I heard, that Axe's feel more natural, than line 6, but i heard only about high tier models. What about Fractal Audio FX8 Mark II for example? Almost same price

The FX8 is effects only, for amp models you need to look into the AX8. If you want something that sounds great and is more portable, I could check out the Atomic Amplifire, some would argue it sounds better than the AX8, it's small, about 1/2 the price, and if you decide to take it to the stage you can add a MIDI foot controller.

What about price/feelings? Is it better to get expensive processor or cheapest AX8 ?

Late to the party, just my 2 cents.

I'm very happy with my Line 6 Helix. And it seems to fit your bill.

They just made a lite version, around 900USD, with all the modeling and amps as far as I know.

If you have questions about the Helix, shoot !

I haven't used any of them, but I have been researching them for myself. The AX8 is a lot more expensive than the POD HD Pro you mentioned in your first post, did you mean the Helix? They are on pretty much equal in price, and from what I understand, quality. The Helix LT is the same guts and processors as the full blown one, in a smaller package and missing some of the nice interface stuff, like being able to custom name the footswitches in each patch.

Again, if you do some research, there are a lot of people who think the Amplifire models are better than either, I think it comes down to personal choice at this level. There is also the Headrush pedalboard, but since it's new in the game, there isn't a ton of information out there about it.
