Lengthy discussions about the Boomerang can, of course, be found in the
archives so I'll keep my response short.
Sound Quality: There are two versions of the 'Rang, the original and the
'Rang Plus. The original had somewhat questionable sound quality as it's
sample rate was fairly low. The Plus fixes this with the option of higher
sample rates. I own a 'Rang and haven't upgraded it yet. The sound is
pristine, but most of the time I don't mind it.
Fun Factor: This is a very fun and easy to use unit. What it lacks in
features (compared with the EDP and others) it more than makes up for in
simplicity. Also the new 'Rang Plus adds a number of features I can't
to get my hands on including the ability to work with two loops and more
flexible speed adjustments.
Stereo: It's not. Period. One input + one output = mono. Sigh. Also
way that I know of to get two and link them together to run stereo.
So, if you have a spare $400 or so lying around and want a fun, easy to
tough as nails looper then go for it. If you're looking for something to
replace an EDP this probably won't cut it.
Hope that helped,
