I just recieved my big box DMM from Howard a few days ago. I have to say it is the best sounding analog delay IMO before the mods but now it's heaven. Mine is very quiet which surprised me. I've heard there's noise issues in other threads. Plugged it into a BC108 Fuzz wide open and I was in Gilmour/DSOTM territory. Anyway just wanted to give praise to a living legend.
