If your tone is your masterpiece, the DT25 tube guitar combo amp is your paintbrush. This portable 25W/10W tube amp from Line 6 and tube-amp guru Reinhold Bogner gives you four stunning, lust-worthy amp voicings and unprecedented versatility that lay the foundation for you to build your perfect tone.
The powerful combination of reconfigurable analog components and HD modeling allows the DT25 combo to be four boutique tube amps in one, capable of producing stunning American cleans, British crunch, class A chime, and modern high-gain tones. Selectable operating class, power tube mode, and four Voicings (which offer the perfect combinations of negative feedback loop topology, and HD preamp and tone stack modeling) can dial in classic vintage tones or be shaped into highly customized originals - and each one drips with boutique tone and touch-response.
The DT25 amp gets to the point. It's a simple, two-channel amp with a streamlined front panel. But if you connect a POD HD multi-effect pedal or POD HD Pro multi-effect rack to this little monster the two integrate to become a boutique tube amp factory!
Connected via exclusive L6 LINK technology, the DT25 amp and POD multi-effect rewrite the traditional amp/multi-effect paradigm and introduce powerful new concepts in control and customization. Add effects, additional amp voicings, foot control and instant scalability (including stereo operation with multiple DT25 amplifiers). DT25 is the perfect pairing for POD HD multi-effects. The days of plugging a POD into the front of an amp are over!
Revolutionary Bogner tube design meets Line 6 HD modeling
The Voicing switch is the heart of DT25 amp. It conjures the characteristic tone, feel and response that are at the heart of four celebrated amp voicings: American clean, British crunch, class A chime and modern high-gain. Different negative feedback loop topologies pair with HD preamp and tone stack modeling to produce the perfect tonal springboards for you to craft your perfect tones:
• Voicing I: Classic American Clean (tight negative feedback loop)
• Voicing II: British Crunch (medium negative feedback loop)
• Voicing III: Class A Chime (zero negative feedback loop)
• Voicing IV: Modern, High-Gain (resonant negative feedback loop)
Selectable operating class and power tube mode
Take your tone in many different directions with the selectable operating classes and power tube modes. Mix and match them with the Voicing switch to dial in truly unique tones. Or align the components in tried-and-true combinations to deliver fresh takes on the immortal classics.
• Selectable operating classes - Class AB/25 watts/fixed bias; Class A/10 watts/cathode biased
• Selectable power tube modes - Pentode; Triode
Any two amps you want, separated by a single channel switch
The two channels can be set to any combination of Voicing, operating class and power tube mode, so the channel switch is more like an A/B switch connected to two different amps. (Or, for a boost channel, set the channels the same with one a little louder.)
For example, set Channel A to a California clean tone. It can be complete with a high amount of negative feedback for a tight sound, characteristic class AB headroom and plenty of pentode-powered body. Set Channel B to deliver vintage Class A chime with zero negative feedback for an open, dynamic feel. Triode mode darkens the tone a bit and rounds off the edges, and Class A operation provides no shortage of touch sensitivity when you dig in with your pick. That's total analog and digital reconfiguration in one touch.
DT25 amplifier + POD HD multi-effect = Boutique tube amp factory
DT25 amplifiers and POD HD multi-effects don't just connect, they seamlessly integrate to transform into a boutique tube amp factory capable of creating any tone you need with incredible tone and feel. POD HD multi-effects come to the party with additional models including 20+ HD amp models, 20+ HD guitar preamp-only models, huge collections of effects, cabs, mics and more. With a single L6 LINK connection, you get:
• Automatic analog configuration. Select a POD HD amp model or preset and the DT25 analog components will automatically configure themselves to the appropriate operating class, biasing method, negative feedback topology and power tube mode.
• Save custom analog configurations. Saving your custom DT25 configurations is as easy as saving POD HD presets. Tweak the DT25 amp settings, press Save on the POD HD multi-effect and incredibly unique and complex amp configurations can be recalled instantly.
• No ground loops. You'll never get ground loop hum from an L6 LINK connection!

I purchased this amp 3 months ago and really like the tone I can obtain with just the stand alone amp. I added the 112 extension cab two weeks ago and the together push a lot of air with plenty low end that is adjustable with the bass knob. The two together look like a mini stack. Both are well constructed and have a nice vintage look. These two together are awesome. I have not had it long enough to question the reliability as it has worked ever time. Knock on wood. Just treat it like any tube amp, that is power it up in stand by mode and let the tubes warm up before playing and do the reverse when done. Also, I a have a POD 500X that I connect using the L6 Link to the amp and sound awesome. However, it does take time to dial in the tone you want with the POD connected. But you can configure very unique sounding amps and effects. Most of the time I just play straight in the amp. I have not performed the firmware 2.0 update to obtain all the HD models pre-amps that are on the POD HD 500X available with the update yet since I have a POD HD 500X. Last, since I am just a hobbyist I do not know what professionals think of the DT series but it meets all my needs. I would try Line 6 next to Fender, VOX and Mesa Boogie amps make your own conclusions.
I have been playing this Amp now for a few days and have to say it really sounds great by itself. The different voicings really makes this amp shine. I really like the Fender clean sounds you can get and was really impressed with the High Gain from Voicing IV. So this amps does it all on its own, but when you pair it with my POD HD500X it really came alive. The tones really shine with each Amp settings. I havent really got it all figured out yet but this amp really sounds good.
I've been playing for 40 years. I have done a fair amount of studio recording and live performing. I worked as an engineer. I have heard good tone and bad tone. This amp has legit tone. The DT 25 is, hands down, a game changer! I do mainly recording work and need a variety of authentic. legit amp sounds. When I need a fender clean, I need a fender clean. When I need a Marshall, I need a Marshall. When I need a Vox, I want a Vox AC 30 TB. Play this side by side with the "actual" amp - you will not be able to tell the difference. I have this paired with the POD hd500 and it blows me away. I now have 20 something amps that sound tube - o - licious and authentic. Amp by itself sounds great too! Do yourself a favor and go play this amp.
Unpacked it a week ago, plugged in my HD 300 with a standard XLR and was absolutely (and instantly) thrilled with the versatility and sound. It looks amazing with backlit controls (think: MacBook Pro lighted keyboard) and the leather-look handle and retro grille-cover make it's understated appearance cool in any setting. And, what tone! From in-your-face crunch with killer sustain to warm caramel on vanilla-bean ice cream smooth tones, the amp is truly a one-stop shop for all styles. 25 watts? More than enough power to annoy the neighbors. If, as I have done, you shell out the bucks for this one amp, you won't be disappointed.
I have this and the DT50 2x12. I just got this 2 weeks ago. No arguing that yes these are pricey. They are however great sounding amps. With or without the POD HD the tones are incredible. Even with the amp set to 10 watts, it is difficult to use at bedroon levels. With the mixer on the POD and setting up volume pedal on the POD, I can keep the levels low enough. Without the POD, it might be too loud for your situation. You can use the xlr out in standy for silent playing if required. Great tube amp for tone and versaltility, pod or no pod. Wait for a sale and treat yourselve to one or even 2. You will be happy you did !!!
I ordered this Monday and true to the promise made by my GC salesman it arrived today. Unpacking it was a treat to see how spectacular this amp looks. Plugging it in, switching it on and discovering the oh-so-cool backlighted control panel (think: backlit keyboard on the older Mac PowerBooks) I plugged my Line 6 HD 300 into the dedicated Line 6 link using a brand new XLR, strummed my American Standard Tele and was transported to another sonic level by the velvety, rich and warm tone flowing all around me. Beautiful to look at and a pleasure to play. It is all the hype suggests and more. Dialing through the more than 100 model settings on the HD 300 proved that the DT 25 can be loud and proud with in-your-face attitude to die for or sweet and silky like aural caramel on vanilla bean ice cream. I am hooked... For life.
