    When I hear “spatial broadness”, I kind of just imagine the pedal delaying the repeats on one side or the other by an extra few milliseconds so that the two sides are distinct from each other.

    This is just idle speculation, though. The description Boss gives is so vague as to be meaningless.

    So do you need stereo in? Or mono in and stereo out?

    If stereo in is needed, do you run a mono in chorus to stereo out then those outs to DD7 ins?

    stereo in and stereo out, hence the LS-2s on either side. but you could easily run it from a mono to stereo pedal that is in front of it, then to two amps or sum it back down. not sure what it would sound like being summed back to mono but im sure it would be noticeable. i still haven't tried it xD

    Well, to me mode A and mode C sound the same, just simultaneous delays through both amps. Mode B (panning) sounds cool for ping pong, but I can't seem to find a difference between the other two modes. Not sure if I'm missing something?

    Anyone else tried it?

    Has anybody tried this stereo feature mode 3 thru head-phones?
    It makes me wonder if it works like Strymon and Line6 delays, that in stereo have this wonderful lush ambeient/reverblike-wideness.

    Although I haven't played a DD7 in some time, this sounds a lot like the Haas (also called Precedence) effect. You basically delay one side by a few milliseconds and I guess the ear places the sound based on where it hears it first.

    It will be most pronounced with headphones on, but yeah, it does work quite well to create a more realistic sense of space. Stereo reverbs do it.
