Re: echoplex or jamman?

I have used both. The jamman sounds so much better it's shocking. The EDP
is very noisy. The EDP uses pre-emphasis/de-emphasis in their converter
topology, this means that any signals with a lot of high end, like from a
fuzzbox, will overload or alias like crazy. The EDP sounds subjectively
dull or cloudy compared to the jamman.

The EDP has a really amazing operating system. The 'multiply' feature is
really great. 

I really wish that they had done a better job with the EDP circuit board
layout, so that the fidelity was higher. The seem to use a decent converter
in the EDP, but Lexicon has such a great design team when it comes to
digital audio....

I think it is important to discuss this issue, since everyone I know who
owns one has complained about the EDP's sound quality, but nobody on this
list has brought this subject up.
