If you want pristine digital sounding loops then steer clear of the EH16 
if you want a great, warm-sounding device that is quick to use and very
musical then accept no substitute.

EH were never known for their build quality, all of your hard-earned went 
sound. As for noisy well, we are talking about early digital technology but
I don't find noise a problem and one man's poor bandwidth is another man's
soulful character.

No way! Nothing comes close to sounding like my EH! You can get bigger and
"better" but this thing has a sound.
