The JP8 has no CEMs in it IIRC. The OB8 does
(as does the OBXa, Xpander, Matrix 12).

You gotta hear the Four Voice before you
decide on anything CEM-related. CEMs have
a very specific sound that some like, and
some don't. I hate them...they sound unlike
the Legend gear (Four-Voice, CS-80, etc.)
Put an SEM against a Pro-One and be startled
by how thin the Pro-One sounds.

Your mileage may vary. Especially considering
the myriad possible interpretations of "phat"
versus Fat, which I am describing here. Plenty
of people like the Pro-One, and that's okay
too of course.
