Blackstar HT-5R MKII 2 Channels Guitar Combo Amplifier with USB Audio Out (Refurbished)

Killer tones and innovative features make the Blackstar HT-5R MKII Guitar Combo Amplifier the ultimate studio and practice valve amp. The MKII is a completely new design that takes the performance of this award-winning tone machine to a whole new level. This is a certified refurbished product backed by a 90-day warranty.
Low Wattage Valve Goodness
Valve amps sound best when cranked; the unique feel, dynamics, and natural compression of a valve power stage running hot is widely considered the holy grail of guitar tone. The problem is turning your 100W valve amp up to these volumes is neither practical for yourself nor your neighbors. The HT-5R MkII, with its low-powered push-pull 12BH7 power amp, produces the crunch and break-up characteristics of a traditional 100W output stage at volumes suitable for home practice and recording.
Perfect for Practice and Recording
Alongside providing capture-ready valve tones at any volume, HT-5R MKII comes equipped with a direct USB output for the simplest way to get valve tones into your recordings without the need for an interface. Also included is a fully specified stereo recording output via XLR and jack with selectable cabinet simulation options of 4 x 12 or 1 x 12. The best part these amps have in-built load protection, meaning you can use them without a cabinet connected for silent practice and recording.
Professional Recording Connectivity
USB output has been added for the simplest way to get valve tones into your recordings. Also added is a pro-balanced XLR D.I. output, which allows the speaker-simulated signal (selectable choice of 4 x 12 or 1 x 12) to be connected to external devices for practicing, recording, or live use.
Power Reduction
Inspired by the patented Dynamic Power Reduction circuit, simply switch down to 0.5 Watts at the push of a button without any loss of tone, and perfect for driving the 12BH7 power stage hard at lower volumes.
Patented ISF
The patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) control is unique to Blackstar Amplification and represents a major step forward in tone-shaping flexibility. The ISF control shifts the response of the three-control tone stack between a US-type response at one end and a UK-type response at the other. Importantly, in between the two extremes lies an infinite number of alternative tone choices that would be otherwise unavailable.
Full Tone, Low Volume
Featuring unique push-pull 12BH7 power amps, the HT-5R MKII is designed to create a full sound even at the lowest of volumes, helping to create that sound in your head no matter the environment.
Studio Quality Reverb
The new studio quality reverb has been referenced against the most revered vintage and modern reverb units, designed to perfectly complement guitar tones.
Two Footswitchable Channels and Voices
The HT-5R MKII comes equipped with two foot-switchable clean and overdrive voicings - On the clean, choose between a bright and pristine American setting with a solid and tight bass response or a classic British setting with looser bass response and a warmer mid-range, sensitive to your guitar output and playing dynamics. On the overdrive, choose between a classic hot-rodded setting with medium power amp damping and a more modern setting with a strong mid-emphasized pre-overdrive boost with a looser, more aggressive sound due to reduced power amp damping.
Stunning Looks
The compact cabinet of the HT-5R MKII has a 3-degree angle on the front face, a top-loader panel, and stage-friendly chicken head knobs giving the amp a stunning boutique style.
