OK folks, this is just a suggestion, I'm not very familiar 
with the Boss gear.

Given that software may be a good alternative, let's look at the hardware

How about we say,
Start from the top of the list and buy the first one you can afford

DL4 240 (maybe 200)
SMM & Hazari 145
RC-20XL 140 (maybe 125) + psu
Headrush 140 +psu (maybe 120)(it's gone up! used to be <100)
DD-7 120 + psu
RC-2  90 + psu


Maybe the list varies according to local prices.

Maybe I missed someone's favourite.
(well, I missed Michael's suggestion of 2 tape decks, but I assume
 we're looking at being able to tap in the looptime)

...or perhaps just got the wrong order there.

Maybe we can knock some of those off the list altogether to simplify.

Suggestions?

Just looking at artists who manage to put a show together with just one 
looper,
the DL4 and RC-20XL presumably should be near the top of the list.
