Normally this thing is ~$329 at Amazon and other sellers, though it dipped into the $240s last year in the Spring, per CamCam. Strangely, the only way to the $226 deal I can find is via a $329 other vendor's Amazon page, but the Deal link directly to the $226 price is listed as "another seller" / "Amazon" on the right side / mid of the page I've linked to.
This box allows you to plug directly into it and then into a PA system and get very expensive sound out of an ordinary acoustic pickup. It will emulate different high-end acoustic and amp sounds / venues for different purposes and lots of pros use these rather than carry an amp around all over. I have a Fishman Pro acoustic amp, but could not pass this price up to add to my board for my Martin HD35. Folks use them for guitars, mandolins, dobros, etc.
The only negative I can find is that this will not ship until July [my confirm ordering a moment ago says Arriving Jul 12 - Jul 20].
