    I am in a bind and need some help..........I am debating which rig I should go with, a WT800B or a Navigator with a poweramp.

    I already have a poweramp I can use for the Nav - a QSC PLX-2402.

    However, for a few extra $$ I can get the WT800B. I could keep my QSC for bac up duty, build another rig some day, or use it for a PA.

    I will probably use the Eden rig for my Bag End S15 stack.

    Which would you get and why?? Thanks!!

    The 800 is a great head... the Nav has a killer compression circuit and a lot more tone (when used with an Eden power amp)

    The Nav with a WT1000 is better than a WT800 (better tone, better DI, better comp), but I might go for a WT800 ahead of a Nav/PLX rig, assuming I was using Eden speakers.

    The compressor is really fantastic. I also love the Tube Character Control. The footswitch that comes with the Nav is also stellar as it has a mute, boost, and bypass for the comp and Enhance Circuit.

    i like the eden foot switch, but it would be cool if it had some options on it, like a effects loop plug in onto it, tube on/off switch

    someone mentioned before that they thought the turbo boost was a lil too loud ( i think its 12 db) and u could get it modded to a lower db.

    i sometimes wish the input for the foot switch was front panel aswell.

    i love mine though
