Check against requirements:
- small size and weight, superior portability
        a very short, but nevertheless 2HU rack unit, but can sit on the 
table as well  
- great sound (despite 12bit) in high volume situations (round & sexy, 
never harsh or metallic)
- tolerable ground noise
       depends - some of the Repeaters have a noise issue, others don't.
- no limit to minimum loop length (like rc-50's 1.5 seconds)
       no problem with OS2
- instant looping
- very easy & stable midi master/slave operation
       ok with OS2
- quality of components (no dust crackling, flawlessly working 
connectors and foot switch after 15 years)
       don't know, it doesn't exist for 15 years...

But i might also need
- several synchronous or asynchronous loops running
       only 4 synchronous ones
- ability to store loops and transfer to computer
- pitching (without timestretching algorythms active) in tape mode, like 
in boomerang (or more versatile)
       both works (with and without timestretching)
- workable without large midi remote
- fade in/out options of already recorded phrases (as in rc-50)
