I see what you mean. The Eden arrived today and I've been doing the old A/B comparisons all day. The Eden is tighter and stays that way as you crank. The Walkabout is thicker and.....hell, I don't know, just very pleasing to the ear. No real volume difference but the Eden will hold it together longer at a gig, I can tell.
As of tonight the nod goes to the Eden, partly because I like the feature comforts like mute and on board compressor.
But man, the fan is really loud when it comes on! People talk about the Walkabout fan but this is worse.
The good news is I don't think I'll need to go the slave amp route. I'll be receiving the LDS cab and I'll try them both with the 3 cab stack.
