piezo bridge

can anyone comment on the quality of electric sounds those piezo equipped bridges do?
do they produce the same quality of tone as those of just for electrci brdiges?
i'm talking about the fishman powerbridge and the lr baggs xbridge.
also, which of the two is better? and from what i read the brdiges are passive but does having the recommended preamp advisable as to just using the bridges as passive?

I am not sure if this is what you want to know or not, but I have an RG 620x with a piezo in the tremelo. To desribe the sound, I would have to say that it is the closest thing to an acoustic as I have heard. It absolutely glimmers, and shimmers. However, I geuss these things are a little brittle, because mine stopped working about 6 months after I bought it, and I dont abuse my gear what so ever. All my stuff stays in my music room and NEVER leaves the house. I replaced the battery in it to see if that is what was causing it, but no go. Which brings up another thing. If the battery even starts to weaken, the piezo really suffers and starts to loose clarity. You reall have to keep a fresh battery in there at all times, otherwise, it sounds terrible.
