A-Designs Heralds EM-PEQ Equalizer
A-Designs Audio has shrunk its all-tube Pultec EQP-1A equalizer to fit in a compact 500 Series module frame size. Dubbed the EM-PEQ, its makeup amplification is achieved through the use of the same discrete Class-AB amplifier found in the company’s solid-state Pacifica mic pre.
Additional features include a nickel-core output transformer, gold Grayhill rotary switches, Wima caps, and a true hard bypass. Instead of using off-the-shelf chokes, A-Designs uses a custom-wound tapped inductor wound to the original values. Fully balanced, noise-free operation with modern impedance specs make for “dummy-proof operation and fast studio integration.”
The EM-PEQ is an approved API “VPR Alliance” product and may also be used in Brent Averill Enterprises racks and A-Designs Audio’s R52, manufactured by Avedis Audio Electronics.
The A-Designs Audio EM-PEQ will be available in May 2007 for $1400. More information on the A-Designs Audio EM-PEQ.
