Re: Sound quality of various loopers

I have never experienced this with any of the looping devices I've owned and used: Boomerang, RC-20, Echoplexes, RC-20.  The Boomerang tended to generate a bit of hiss for me, but I was able to minimize by ensure my levels were relatively hot on the unit. 
Where are you running the Boomerang in your signal chain?  You ran an A/B test and demonstrated the Boomerang is actually contributing to the thinning?  It could be a signal chain gain thing.  Though not stellar, I recall the specs on that unit (bit rate and frequency range) were enough to not significantly alter the tone of your instrument.

Subject: Sound quality of various loopers

Hi folks,
I haven't posted in quite some time, but now I'm back to bother you all with my silly questions.
I use a Boomerang, and although it's an easy unit to use I've noticed that there is a noticeable "tinniness" to the playback. Of course, I have it set for highest quality.
I've also noticed this on other looping devices. For example, my guitar teacher has an RC-50 which he just has hooked up to a little practice amp, I still notice a slight thinning out of the playback sound.
Is this common to all looping devices? Is there any way around this such as compensating with some kind of eq?
Thanks, and I apologize because I know my questions are very basic.
