Re: ipad to HT1 connection

Simple, all you need is a 3.5mm stereo jack to 6.35 stereo jack lead to connect from your iPad headphone socket to your HT-1 MP3/Line in socket, there's loads on eBay.

Re: BlackStar HT-1R

I think the new (yet to be released) 10th Anniversary Edition combos look interesting especially the Series One version, it's like a grown up HT-1, the top panel is set out exactly the same with Gain, Vol, ISF and Reverb.

Knowing how loud the HT-5 can get these 10 watt'ers may be just the ticket!

Re: HT-1R Combo: Best Speaker replacement?

Glad you got it sorted, yep that back panel does get a bit sticky.

Let us know how you get on once you've given the Celestion a work out!

Re: HT-1R Combo: Best Speaker replacement?

Yes the Celestian is definitely a "step up" over the stock speaker and very affordable (think it was less than £25 incl postage), it only takes 30 mins or so to swap out.
Can't imagine after fitting the Celestian you'd want to go back to the Blackbird IMHO.

Re: HT-1R Combo: Best Speaker replacement?

I fitted a Celestian Eight 15 to my HT1-R so can't comment on other speakers and I'm more than happy with it. Personally I don't care much for EQ pedals mainly because of the amount of "white noise" they can produce which I find un-acceptable. To brighten up mine I run a Blackster LT Boost pedal for...

Re: Blackstar HT-5 = the best 5W amp I have ever used

Yes GWB it's normal for the EQ section to only work on the overdrive channel. You'll have to use an EQ pedal to get more out of the clean channel, personally I don't care much for EQ pedals as such just because of the amount of "white noise" they can create. I have an HT1-R and run a Blackstar LT Bo...

Re: HT-1 SE

Don't mean to offend anyone but I fail to see what's so "special" about this model? The price being quoted in the ad is £206 when the HT1-R with the extras usually retails for £199 here in the UK, I was lucky enough to pick one up new for £169! £149 would be more realistic given the lack of features.

Re: HT5R Reverb issue

Sounds like it's faulty, it should work straight away.
I'm guessing it's probably just a dry solder joint and once things have warmed up a bit that's enough to make a good enough connection for it to work.

Re: HT-1R: is the reverb worth it?

I'm more than happy with the reverb on my HT1R, it seems just right. One thing to consider is a reverb pedal obviously adds the effect to your signal chain up front but the HT1R applies the reverb after it's passed the Gain, Power Amp and EQ (isf) stages, I think it makes a difference. You only get ...
