    I was about to purchase an LB-2 but then read more closely the attenuation notes:

    “The X-LOAD LB-2 can be also be used to partially reduce the volume of your amp by diverting half of its power to the load.”

    Ok, so down by 50%, but I was expecting continuously variable output to the speaker similar to my hot plate.

    I get that it is way more capable than the hot plate but I’m not sure a fixed volume change, let alone having to use a different impedence cab is the way to go.

    Thoughts? I don’t really need it until the spring, maybe there will be a lb-1 or -3 by then?
