    I'm pretty sure you're right after looking into it more.
    Found a block diagram of it:

    I noticed in the stereo field of mine.

    Each BBD side was at the same rate.

    Is it true these don't sound good with overdrive/distortion for some reason? Wives tale?

    some have headroom problem, they clip very easily, so I guess that's where the comments come from.

    It's not only rare, it's also very unique. The true parallel chorus thing it does in stereo isn't really available on 90+% of chorus pedals over the past 30 years. And (I'm assuming), it's analog as well.

    That's my concern and the reason I sold my old one. Its not often that I've been allowed the luxury of running stereo live and most chorus pedals get phase-y/metallic in mono. The only two I've found that avoid that in mono are the RT Electronix Threeway (TSC in a pedal) and the Neunaber (Detune). If this one improves on that shortcoming, I'm in!

    There ain't no place I'd rather be

    Is it analog? I always assumed DC stood for Digital Chorus, but I just saw a demo of an original online, and they said it was analog.

    I know the original was analog. I was just saying I assumed the Waza version would be too.

    The quote I replied to asked... “Is it analog?”

    I thought the original chip set would be helpful.

    The new one, if analog would use the Cool Audio 3207 that the CE-2w has.

    First time I've been interested in any Boss in a long while.
    Looking forward to it. Dimension in stereo is amazing.

    and better headroom too... did not regret selling mine as I always thought there was better options for mono use.

    Don't want to be Captain Obvious here, but DC stands for Dimension C.... Its more or less a copy of the Roland Dimension D (SDD-320) that's also the 2nd mode on the DC-2w

    I have read that some units clip easily when fed with a hot signal. This has not been my own experience however. Also, I feel that settings two, three, and four don’t sound that good either before or after heavy distortion. Setting one on the other hand sounds glorious, especially after heavy distortion. These observations are for when using the pedal in mono.

    Chorus aficionados, any particular guitarists or tunes to listen to as good examples of this sound? I know the original is legendary, and I've heard demos, but I can't say I know what it sounds like in its natural habitat. I know it's famed for that "still" chorus sound, and whenever I think of that adjective I think of 80s king crimson, and I have a huge soft spot for that sound. Is that in the ballpark?

    So I'm excited about this but where is the source?

    I see the Sweetwater tag in the photo but the pedal is not on Sweetwater's website or their Instagram feed. A Google search led me back to this thread.
