    I had one with an attached power chord (the older style...but not that old) was noisey and had a whine to the repeats that was very annoying!! It was very noticeable when playing and caused me to get rid of it. Also, the bypass didn't bypass the pre-amp section. From what I've heard, it was caused by the power supply being close to the other components.

    I've had better luck with the newer style, quieter and they bypass the pre-amp...

    My late 70's model has less white noise and the modulation is "swampier"

    not true bypass though ... but a looper fixes that.

    yup - the chips are different - BUT the new ones (at least a year ago) sound very good.
