      Aside from the afformentioned chorus and reverb control functions, the amplifier is solidly constructed and loud enough for my purpose. I am quite pleased with my recent purchase as well as the customer service of MF. I had ordered two and had to return one with a non functioning reverb, but was propmtly sent a new amp within 5 days. Returns are handled curteously and with no hassles. Even though I could have saved $20 from other online dealers, I have been a MF customer a number of times in the past and this was the first time that I ever had to return something. Keep up the great service.
      Amplifier has two top panel channels, Channel One for instrument has an unbalaced 1/4" input jack, rotary constrols for level, low and high equalization with center detent so that the equalization functions as a +/- 15db boost/cut (much more flexible for achieving you desired tone), rotatry chorus with a push button select fro assigning the chorus to either channel one or channel two.

      Channel Two has a combination 1/4"-XLR input jack for either an instrument (high impedance) or a microphone (low impedance), rotary constrols for level, low, middle and high equalization with center detent, reverb control and master volume (common to both channels). Other features are chicken head style knobs, 1/4" headphone jack, power led indicator (power switch and power cord connection on rear panel. Two eight inch full range dual cone speakers, spring reverb pan and durable hansome looking dark brown tolex covering with antique brass colored corner protectors as well as a sturdy cabinet.
      I bought this amplifier primarily for use with a Walden CG550 nylon string A/E with Fishman Classic 4 preamp, Walden, GC630CE grand concert steel string A/E with Fishman Classic 4 preamp and a Tanglewood TW28-CSN-CE dreadnaught steel string A/E with Fishman Isys preamp. Eq works quite well in conjuction with the stated guitars onboard preamp tone controls. I definitely like the center detent (flat) positions and find that I plenty of range so that I do not have to make major adjustments. Sound is clear and I belive does not suffer from lack of a HF tweeter. Yes I get the usual piezo quack from the pickups but am amble to minimize it with the equalization controls. Volume is suprisingly loud for a solid state amp and should be fine for small venues and out door back deck gatherings (one of the reasons I bought it). The built-in chorus has an audible hiss if turned up all the way (not necessary - lower setting sound best for acoustic guitar). The spring reverb is clean sounding but a little on the "light" side. Obivously having more controls for depth and mix of these effects would have exceeded the price point for this amplifier. Even plugging in my Classic Vibe 50's Telecaster sounded decent (but I am spoiled by the reverb in my vibro-champ XD).
      Compared to other acoustic amplifiers that cost less (ie no second channel, one speaker, etc) and cost more ($300 +) the overall quality and value for $189.95 is remarkable.

      I bought this amp here in Hamilton, and every one of these Peavy Ecoustic 208 amps was noisy. The problem is mostly with the chorus select, although even without the chorus select on, it makes a lot of noise. I bought one, then returned it. Peavey gave me a new one. I returned that one too. I was disappointed because this amp had everything I wanted in an amp. Mic jack, reverb, chorus, high low and mid. I ended up getting a Crate Acoustic 125D. Sure it cost me a couple hundred more, but well worth the investment.

      Picked out this amp because I have another Peavey amp
      that sounds good and works well for me. This amp has all the features I wanted and was a great deal.
      When I plugged in and turned it on there was this hum that distracted from the nuances of the acoustic/electric sound. So it's going back.

          This amp fit my needs perfectly. Enough power for small halls, lightweight, and the balanced mic input works great. Took a bit of "tweaking" to get the sound I wanted but the controls are easy to use.

            Comments about Peavey Ecoustic E208 30W 2x8 Acoustic Combo Amp:

            I've had this amp for over a year now, & here's my review. 1st of all, like many of the reviews I see here, I too thought it was "loud", "noisy", & I ALMOST returned it. Here's the thing with this amp. You need to finely adjust between the master volume & the level of whatever channel you're using. By doing that you can eliminate the static noise. Then, you will see, that this is actually a great amp for the money. It's clean, loud, & has a great E.Q. on either channel. Don't be discouraged when you 1st plug your guitar(or mic) into it & you get a hissing sound. Adjust the level & master volume settings & it sounds great. Any static from using the chorus can also be eliminated by adjusting the level & master volume.

                      The "Condition One" rating for the product (used, in mint condition) wasn't accurate. The packaging showed no obvious sign of damage during shipment, but the amp definitely didn't work when it got here. The power indicator light would come on and immediately turn off when the switch was turned on. It just made a humming noise. When the light stayed on, the amp made a GOD-AWFUL noise like it was either receiving some interference, my phone was downloading data too close to the amp or there was a polarity issue. I sent it back and upgraded to a new amp to see if the problem would still be there. I'll give another review when I get an amp that works.

                            Really impressed by this little amp. Very live sound that works well with my Martin Aura. Spring reverb is great; chorus sounds good. Doubles for me as a practice bass amp. Has surprising punch for a 30 watt amp. Excellent bang for the buck

                            Outstanding light, little amp. Stick it in the back of my MINI and go. It has excellent two-channel input, with one channel taking either the 1/4" cord or the mic cord -- really convenient.
                            So far so good -- I've only had it for a few weeks, but have had no problems. I still own and use my Peavey PA System that I bought in 1980 and it still sounds great!
                            For the price, best overall features, quality, and utility.
