Great for playing, not so good for recording DI
Victor J, 22.12.2020
You've probably read tons of great reviews about the THR5, and indeed I agree with all of them in terms of sound quality, clarity, versatility, design, and so on. However, I want to add here a point of view about something not a lot of people share: recording via USB. As you know, you can connect your THR5 to a computer and use it as an audio interface for recording. If you're looking for a really minimal setup for your home studio (like I was), I'm sad to share that the THR5 doesn't do a good job in this area.

If you want to record one of the processed sounds of the amp ("clean", "crunch", "lead", etc, which are send through input signals 1 and 2), you might be happy with the outcome. However, if you want to use a digital amp sim like the ones from your DAW or NeuralDSP plugins, for example, you may prefer to use the DI inputs (3 and 4). Despite THR5's Impressive low latency, here are the main problems:

The output signal for DI is very low, and there's nothing you can do to control the gain for DI. All the settings for master, volume, and gain control affect only the processed sounds, not the DI. In my case, my guitar signal was peaking at -34db when recording, which is pretty low, creating a bad signal to noise ratio. When compared to Focusrite Scarlett Solo, for example, the difference in quality is gigantic, so I recommend you to use a proper audio interface for better sound recording instead of the THR5.

All in all, I really like this Amp for daily practice. I just had the wrong expectations in mind for recording when I bought it.

Ultimate amp for self production/home practice!
GiTi, 10.06.2020
Only one word: great!

I use this amp for home practice and recording of demos.
This is a good amp under every aspect. Plenty of words of appreciation have been written over the years and I agree with every single one of them.
Sounds great and the modeled amps and effects provide all the basic options you need for practice and simple recordings.
The drivers' installation on PC is straightforward and no issues whatsoever have emerged while recording with Cubase (included with the amp) and other popular software.
The building quality is flawless and the amp is so compact and light that you can play literally wherever you want.
Only feature I miss: bass/mid/treble knobs available right on the amp (but you have to consider the size); anyway they can be set using the PC application (which offers extended settings and options).

Excellent amp
wavve, 13.05.2020
Excellent amp, I leave in an apartment and I use it to practice almost every day. It's much more convenient than my big amp, I recommend it especially if you don't have that much space where you leave and if you want to be able to practice at a reasonable volume.
It's simple to use, I play mostly blues but the amp is versatile enough to accommodate all kinds of musical styles.
As usual with Yamaha, the product looks pretty solid, I think it will last.
And I love the "retro" look !

Decent sound and comfort
Nort, 16.05.2020
I bought this to practice at home. Unlike the other transistor setups I used in the past it sounds quite decent. Not a tube amp for sure, but good enough for home.
