    *Revive spell*

    I was randomly browsing the Internet on something about my IRT60H, though I forgot what now, as I suddenly stumbled upon pictures of IRT60Hs with DI out etc.

    Is this a new feature on newer models? I'm very happy with mine, never really had a moments trouble, but I very very very rarely missed having a DI out.

    I have owned both versions. The original was only a short run, afaict the majority of them have the DI.

    It has a useful feature which is that you can run the amp signal out, with or without cab sim applied.

    The cab sim is... passable. But the amp signal can easily have IRs applied in your DAW or with a pedal, so its an easy way to get into IRs. It saves having to buy a redbox.

    The only other difference (may) be the noise floor. My first Ironheart was much noisier; with a similar amount of gain it had more background hiss. When soloing, the noise floor was high enough that you could hear/feel the noise gate engaging.

    It may have been defective or there may have been a circuit change. Or they may have changed the presence/top end of the EQ.

    This thread looks kinda dead now. I been a helix user for over 2 years I just got the IRT120H. Running it through 2 oversized 2x12 cabs loaded with 12t-75 this thing is a beast! That real tube feel , the dynamics on the way you pick . Makes me want to get a real rube amp for Helix now

    The IRT120H sounds better through passive pickups . I have 2 guitars with emg81’s they sound a little thin . How are people dealing with active pickups with the amp?
