I'm looking for an IR loader, ideally on a pedal format. Really like my 11R playing live direct to FOH, but lacking a bit when playing with headphones. Thinking adding an IR and bypassing the 11R cab sims might improve it this situation.

Any opinion between those:
- Mooer Radar (cab + poweramp + EQ)
- Hotone Omni IR (aux-in + phone out)
- Ampli Firebox (more than IR pedal but might be useful as a backup or when I want everything fitting in a gigbag)
- other?

I don't know if this fits your requirements but I love my EPSi (by Logidy) IR box with Ownhammer IRs.. I would not want to play without that in the FX loop of the 11r..

Looks like they are out-of-business.

I have seen them on eBay/reverb from time to time for ~$150, but I also know I would be wary buying an electrical device from an out of business company.. Thanks for the info, it is a shame though..

Maybe I will upgrade to an Headrush Gigboard.

I was looking at that Hotone Omni IR. It has a nice feature set.

Looks like Sam Ash has them in stock, as well as Amazon (2 left). (7/2/19)

I agree with Downrazor. The EPSi with Ownhammer IR's is the way to go. Makes the 11R sound like a much better machine.
