Sound on Sound Review
In his review Bob Thomas said, "However, the EDB2 came into its own when dealing with more complex (from a sound-reinforcement point of view) sources. Most of my instruments have pickup/pickup or pickup/mic combinations (which Headway, incidentally, don’t recommend), and getting the best out of these setups does require a bit of work — which the EDB2 handled with ease. Having the five-band EQ and the notch filter available on either channel (or both in the case of the EQ) makes life so much easier. Couple those with the three-position Range switch and you’re close to my ideal acoustic preamp. "
