Great sound and flexibility
Robert Attard 18.06.2021
I am super happy with this analog pedal sized dual amplifier especially after getting familiar with its functions and the possibilities it offers. This is coming from a guy who proudly owns a Kemper. When it comes to this type of solution I think the playing 'feel' I get from this pedal takes me closer to a real amp. The dynamic range of this thing is amazing.
Pedals work fantastic with this device. Be mindful of proper gain staging when using pedals. I am really having fun playing with this thing.

Setups that I tried
DLX => ID22 interface => mac => FRFR monitors
DLX => JOJO BlueJay amp => Vox cabinet
DLX (cab sim off) => Kemper (amp off, cab on) => amp (return) =>cab
The DLX sounds great with headphones (I am using the AKG K712) which makes it also a perfect practice tool.

Pros:
- Very good sound that feels very responsive. Dynamic range is amazing for this kind of solution.
- Endless routing possibilities
- Super easy and straight forward interface.
- Takes pedals really well (seriously)
- Blending between the two amp channels creates a lot of possibilities. Amp channels offer the same amp models but are still different from each other.
- pricing is just right for this level of quality.
- compact size means you can take it anywhere.

Cons:
- The small knobs are slightly wobbly.
- Manual lacks depth. I want to read more about it!
- Reverb is 'ok' but then again you can plug in your favourite reverb pedal in the send/return of the pedal.
- stereo Spread function is non adjustable and tires me after a while (too much phase shifting)

Used for headphones and then returned

I have bought this to play using headphones at home. At the end I couldn't justify the price for the function that I bought this device for.

Issues:
Left and right in headphone out seems to be reversed. Minor issue, but still.

Sound is not tube-like, at least not for me. I own old Laney Cub 8, it's as entry as it gets to tube amps and I was not excited by the Simplifier DLX compared to Cub8, although YouTube reviews did seem promising. Maybe it's my headphones - ATH M50x, but, anyway, it didn't work for me. I guess it's also important to mention that I play mostly clean, DLX might work if you play in overdrive more.

Quality - doesn't seem bullet proof. Don't get me wrong, it's solid, but it feels flimsier than than EHX / Strymon pedals that I own.

Good:
No noise - I have used with Thomann wall-wart PSU and had no noise issues, which I've seen reported in reviews occasionally.
