    The manual for the Eden WT-550 says:

    "Recording Out (D.I.) – This fully balanced XLR output allows you to send a pre- or post-EQ signal ..."

    but I don't see any kind of pre/post switch on the back panel. OK, so the manual is wrong. Probably derived from another model's manual and they missed that in proofreading. No problem.

    Question remains, Is the DI before or after the:
    preamp?
    compressor?
    EQ?

    The WT-400 was post. I believe the 550 has a push/pull pot for the DI level to switch pre or post. I had the factory change my late '97 WT-400 to switchable, about a year before the 550 replaced the 400.

    The only push/pull pots on my 550 are the input pad (gain knob) and the compressor defeat (enhance knob)

    The WT550 is *post* only, it is non-switchable.
    One of the many errors in the Eden manuals.

    FYI the 1/4" Tuner out is post-tube and pre-EQ. It actually sounds very clean/hifi compared to the XLR out. To my ears most of the "Eden" sound comes from the EQ.

    Yeah I had a chance to play with it at the club tonight. The DI is definitely post-EQ.
    Bummer, I would have preferred pre-EQ.
