Within the last month I traded my BossEQ20 (+ cash) for a programmable SABDDI. The main reason I did this is because the eq20 doesnt have a di. I am really missing the versatility of the eq20 and I was thinking maybe i could try to get it back. It was a great unit even though its not designed as a preamp it works very well as one. Question is do i really need the di of the sabddi? Almost all venues in my area have pa support. SMASH has said (if i remember correctly) that most soundmen would insist on using their units anyway. So maybe I dont have to worry about the di issue?
