    I remember this thread bellow which highlighted how plugging in a guitar into the front input vs. the rear input on the Axe II sounded different. Is this the same with the III or will they all sound the exact same? I'm mainly wondering because I was hoping to plug my wireless into the rear input when I get my Axe III.

    The front and rear inputs are identical on the III.

    the front input on the Axe-Fx II is optimized for a guitar. the rear is not. on the Axe-Fx III, both the front and rear Input 1 have the same optimizations.

    that said, i used the rear on the Axe-Fx II for years and years and really experienced no detriment.
