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
visada_nepatenkintas, 20.09.2021
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.

Sound top - technisch zwei Probleme
_Csaba_, 06.06.2021
Das Pedal klingt sehr gut, ich habe schon Tech21 SansAmp und AxeFx Ultra benutzt, das DLX bringt aber eine Latenzfreie analoge, und nicht übertriebene Darstellung von guten Verstärkern, die auch absolut effekttauglich sind. Eine Menge Features und unendliche Möglichkeiten sind verbaut. Hierzu mein erster Kritikpunkt: die Bedienungsanleitung sollte noch erweitert werden. Die Einstellung der seitlichen Schaltern ist alles andere als intuitiv. Die Routingoptionen müsste man mit mehr Beispielen erläutern. Wer Zeit hat, findet aber schon irgendwann herraus, wie alles geht.
Es gibt bei meinem Gerät leider zwei technische Mängel:
1. Wenn man nur den Köpfhörerausgang anschließt, dann hat man ein hohes Grundrauschen. Das Anschließen eines DI Ausgangs löst das Problem, das Rauschen ist weg. Es scheint so, als wäre das Gerät ohne DI Anschluss nicht sauber geschirmt.
2. Die Links-Rechts Kanäle sind im Kopfhörerausgang vertauscht. Ich habe 3x gegengecheckt, das kann ich mit Sicherheit sagen. Handgemacht hin oder her, sowas dürfte nicht passieren, auch wenn es nicht wirklich schlimm ist, nur etwas verwirrend beim Einstellen.
Mit den Mängel kann ich leben und werde weiterhin gerne mit dem Simplifier spielen. Ob diese Probleme Einzelfälle sind, kann ich noch nicht nachvollziehen, habe einer der ersten Lieferungen wohl von Thomann bekommen.
