akai vs. line 6 Effects Pedals, Units & Accessories

akai vs. line 6

Im trying to make a final decision on getting either a Line 6 dl-4 or an Akai Headrush. Both guitar pedals are used for looping and delay effects. I was wondering if anyone has played both of them and would recomend one over the other. Or what are the pros and cons of each. any suggestions or comments would be appreciated

I too am interested in anyone's thoughts on the Akai Headrush vs. DL4 vs. modded DD5 ...

I've owned the DL4 and the DD-5 stock. Have not used the Akai. I did not care for the Boss, just seemed touchy to me, or something. Not very 'musical'. The Line 6 is outstanding. Very useful analog-sounding piece, even with stock presets. Can run in stereo. Simple to program. And, I happen to have one for sale in the classifieds

They will both work inline, but for my preferences I like to run those kinds of pedals through an insert if possible. I just would rather have a direct guitar tone as the baseline, then layer delays or other FX as desired.
