Hey All, its nice to be back (I just rediscovered this website :L)
Just wondering, for christmas will it be better to just get the Line 6 POD HD300 or save up (for about half a year) and get the Line 6 POD HD400?

Thanks, but I would like to know "is the extra effects/gadgets worth the extra price?"

What are the extra effects? I know there are 80 effects for the HD300 and 100 on the HD400. I just can't find the 20 anywhere on the internet. That's what I would do. See what you can't live without for about a $70 difference.

The HD400 has an extra:
(FX MODELS)
‘63 Spring
Particle Verb
Graphic EQ
Studio EQ
Mid Focus EQ
Slow Filter
Blue Comp Treb
Sub Octave Fuzz
Buzz Saw
Attack synth
"Ducking" (Reverb Model)
"Throaty" WAH Model
"Chrome Custom" WAH Model
"RTRY DRM W/HRN (?)(another FX model)
And maybe a few more I have missed
The HD400 also has an input jack for other stompboxes and wah pedals etc and an FX loop(the 300 doesnt). Are all those worth it for another £81 or so?
POD HD300 = £253.00
POD HD400 = £334.00

Go sit down and try them out side by side. Don't let features guide you-my amp has 2 channels(Gain, Clean) but it has 2 Gains to choose from with a selectable contour knob-because they share the same EQ(Clean has it's own). That usually would turn a lot of people off, but I feel my amp sounds better than anything else with a ton of bells and whistles(Except Mesa...)

What I'm trying to say is this: Tone should be your deciding factor, not how many different EQ's it comes with. I mean who actually uses all that crap anyways? The amp should good without all that on top of it(though it should sound better with it-you are trying to enhance your tone).
Be wary if you have to use a combo of one and half stack of the other-don't let that affect your decision too much since those 2 extra speakers really add more depth than most combo's.

They have inputs on the back for -10 dB input to run pedals through the FX loop, but I've never heard of a dedicated jack for running peals through-I always go through the regular input(then again I use 1 OD pedal-not a chain of them).

Case makes a good case. HA! Yeah. I have a PODXT from like 8 years ago and I still have'nt used all the effects. It has the tone I like which is the most important. I find it works best though a computer. If your playing it through an amp, buy the HD300 and make sure you can return it in 30 days. Try it out where it matters. At home with your guitar and amp.

Cheers for the advice guys, but the tones on the 2 are exactly the same (apart from the extra ones). Yeah, I'll try them both out and ask about the fx loop (whatever that is…). Thanks for the advice :D

FX loop is post pre-amp input for effects like noise suppressors, flangers, phasers, reverb, etc. that will have a different effect on your signal due to the difference in it's placement in the chain. Usually FX will have a much more defined sound going through the FX loop, whereas if you go through the front of the amp it will be much more mellow in what it does to the signal(not like it renders the pedal useless-just isn't as over the top in what it will sound like). Useful if you want to use pedals post input.
