Dimension D vs. Juno 106 Chorus vs. Boss CE-300 - THE SAME CHORUS??

Are Dimension D, Juno 106 Chorus and Boss CE-300 all basically the same unit?

Also are Juno 106 and Juno 60 chorus 100% identical?

Similar but not the same. They are interesting chorus FX because they use two seperate BBD delay paths ... most ordinary BBD chorus pedals just have one delay path that is modulated. If they have a stereo output they merely send dry to the left and wobbly to the right. Or - the worst idea ever - they clone the wobbly signal and polarity invert one of them then hard pan. That creates a nice stereo effect using just one delay - BUT - it totally disappears when summed to mono.

So these units are good because they use two delay paths, and wobble them out of phase. Much better. The Dimension D I think uses more like a square wave, to avoid the wobby triange wave sound of the Juno 60 chorus. Both flavours are nice, but the Dimension was basically a chorus that was trying not to sound like a chorus ... by using slow LFO rates with a square-ish wave it sounds more like a ptich shift chorus - less overt modulation, but lush stereo width.

Actually prior to these, in the 70's there were string machines that used 3 BBD delay lines - and tri-chorus units in the 80's like Dyno-my-Piano etc are really cool ... more is more.

No.
Dimension D and Boss CE-300 utilize noise reduction ciruitry.
This is done by compressing the signal then sending it to the BBD chip and then expanding the signal back to linear dynamic range after the BBD.
The Juno 106 and Juno 60 do not have any companding circuitry to improve signal to noise which is why they are rather hissy.
