Value for money EQ

Pete-plays-guitar, 12.04.2017
I use this in conjunction with a compressor for mastering (yes, there are still people mastering in analogue).

For the price you cannot really complain, you can cut and boost selectively in very fine detail. There are many EQ which cost many factors more, but I would hesitate to think that they are going to be much better.

The only thing I don't like about DBX boxes is that they don't have a power on/off button, so the unit is constantly on when the rack is powered up, and I can't see it costing much more to implement that. This is why it has lost a few stars from me.

Balanced connectors on the back is a big plus, usually limited to pro EQ models.

All in all don't really have any other bad things to say about the unit. At the end of the day it is far more organic than shifting virtual bars on your computer monitor and far more fun.

Highly Recommended

good value

Audun, 17.09.2015
The build quality seems ok. I'd say this is a step up from behringer, but still semi-pro. I use these for fixed installations, and so far none of the 10 units I purchased have had any problems.

Sound quality is hard to judge, as I didn't do an A/B test With anything else. Noise floor is acceptably low.

I have tuned PAs in 10 different rooms (fixed installations) using these, and all bands do what they are supposed to, according to my Acoustic measurements.

EQ is perhaps the least noticed of all types of audio processing, but also the most important.
