no, I said I liked the sound of the JamMan

generally I use electric guitar, and wouldn't mind the jamMan hf loss,
but for miking percussion ( for instance ) it's quite noticeable.

The theory that they teach in college says that the JamMan can sample 
up to 16kHz,
and that's  the limit of my hearing anyway, but Lexicon knew that 
they could get a smoother
sound  by putting their filters a little lower in the audio spectrum, 
so there's some audible hf loss.
...but the quality within that frequency range is superb. Very solid bass
