Hi Ive used the Ht5 several times at gigs although this is my 'backup' Amp and only when Ive had a problem with my main Amp. Personally I would mic the cab of the ht5 rather than use the Emulated out. That may seem a little odd to some but then your getting a truer representation of the ht5 sound......

Re: VIDEO: BLACKSTAR vs MARSHALL vs MESA vs ORANGE

Thanks for Posting, a good comparison For me the Vintage Modern wins hands down ...but I think its one of the best sounding Amps in the entire Marshall range(imo).
