Rated at 240W, this is a loud amp head, but its in no way limited to just big venues and stages, because the Line 6 Spider V 240W HC is fitted with compact full-range stereo speakers (2 x 4") that lets it double as a mini combo amp.

This means that you can utilize this amp both on stage and inside your room, saving you more in the long run.

Being part of the Spider series, the 24HC is as versatile as it gets, with over 200 amp, cab and effect models that you can experiment with to get the tone that you want.

Student friendly features include having a built-in metronome, a tuner, a 60-second looper for layering guitar tracks and selectable pre-recorded drum loops.

Pros
The Line 6 Spider V 240HC endears users with its multi-functionality, and sonic versatility. Many users feel that the addition of small speakers while seemingly simple, makes a big difference in their overall experience with the amp - enabling them to practice with the same amp head they use on stage. Coming from Line 6, it's a given that this amp is praised for sonic versatility, and in addition to that, there are plenty of users who feel that the controls are intuitive. While this amp head is designed to blend well with Line 6 cabinets, there are reports of it working well with cabinets from Marshall and other brands.

Cons
With so many amp models and effects onboard, it's expected that some of the presets will be more loved than the others. This is reflected in a few reviews where users point to specific amp models that they like, and don't like.

Overall
The Line 6 Spider V 240HC is the amp head to beat in this price range - when it comes to sonic versatility of multi-functionality.
