    To me that means the pickups are passive and the eq is active. I had a spector this way.
  3. how does this affect tone ect and
    does it still need a battery

    the active preamp needs a battery, yes.

    IMO it gives you sweet tone + the ability to shape it however you want. I love the SR506.
  5. good stuff hopeing to buy one soon. no shops round here though so buying it blind and hope for the best
