Comparison clips: Friedman Runt v AX8 Friedman v Helix Placater

Clip 1: Helix, Runt, Fractal
Clip 2: Runt, Fractal, Helix
Clip 3: Runt, Helix, Fractal
AX8 - AMP - L6
AMP - L6 - AX8
L6 - AX8 - AMP

However, based on you saying the AX8 was harder to match, perhaps swap the L6 and AX8 in my guesses above. My selection bias told me the L6 was the one that sounded "different" each comparison.
So my selection bias led me astray. In all 3 clips the one I chose as the AX8 was actually the Helix. At least I guessed the amp in 2 out of 3.

Thanks for posting your answers! It’s great to see how good digital devices sound compared to real amps.
I confess I had no idea which clip represented which piece of gear. And it‘s nice to hear that the Helix can sound really well, as I just ordered a Line6 HX Stomp as a backup for my AX8!
