Product Description

The Radial X-Amp is an active re-amping device that presents engineers and producers with a new and innovative creative tool that allows a pre-recorded track from a line level device to drive two guitar amplifiers or effect pedals simultaneously. This opens the door to explore new musical sounds and spur on the creative process.

Radial X-Amp Features

  • Active re-amping device
  • 100% Class-A signal path
  • Two outputs to drive two amps
  • Input level overload LED indicator
  • Isolated output eliminates ground loops
  • Variable output level control

Following the critically acclaimed Radial JD7 Injector, the X-Amp employs a unique Class-A circuit design that has been optimized for use with guitars. Using the X-Amp is easy: One would, for instance, record a dry track using a high quality direct box, then send this track from the recorder to the X-Amp and then to either guitar amps, effect pedals or combinations thereof.

Recording using the X-Amp has many benefits: Once the basic track has been recorded, replacing or adding tracks can be done well after the session player has gone home. This eliminates tiresome repetition and assures a fresh vibrant performance on the final recording. Furthermore, by driving two amps at the same time, new sounds and textures can be created allowing the engineer – producer to make artistic decisions as the recording progresses.

Features include balanced line level input with LED peak indicator and level control, Class-A circuit topology for optimal reach and frequency response, direct and isolated guitar amplifier outputs, 180º polarity reverse to bring both amps into phase, and dual ground lift options for noise-free operation.

As with all Radial products, the X-Amp is built like a tank to provide years of trouble-free performance. A welded I-beam internal skeleton provides a separate housing for maximum protection against external forces, which may cause stress on the PC board assembly while the outside bookend cover provides a protective zone for the switches, potentiometer and connectors. A full bottom no-slip pad performs double duty by keeping the X-Amp from sliding around when placed on a vibrating amplifier while also providing electrical and mechanical isolation.

Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Construction is outstanding. Should last for years of abuse...if you like to abuse your gear.
Features
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Pretty much has all the features that are relevant to a reamp box.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
There are a couple different ways you can use this box. Read the manual first and you should be fine.
Sound
How is the tone?
I'm using a Tech 21 Para Driver DI with this unit and have had some very satisfying results. Tone is clear and seems to push the amp naturally. Didn't rate this 5 stars since it could possibly sound better with the matching J48 DI.
