Equalizer in a Hi Fi system
Genius quote from Chris Henderson at Hendyamps. When I posed the question of digital vs analog EQ in the studio, this was his response. Enjoy:   “Honestly, digital and analog are two completely different beasts.  When you want precision tools tha...

@jtcf, I also have had evenings with friends and family like that as well. You know you have gear that is doing something special when this happens. Great feeling!  Enjoy. API is renowned in studio circles and makes great gear.

Thanks @jtcf for the response. And @unreceivedogma, you are right. Whatever works for you. I am just hoping to save any other avid EQers some trial and error, as I’ve made it my sub hobby to explore as many high end hardware EQs as I can. To both ...

As I keep listening to MA in my big rig, I am impressed upon by a couple of thoughts. One is that I have posted too much here and now no one cares to listen to me. The second thought is that that occurring at this point in time is tragic because t...

Just put the MA in my loudspeaker setup. In the Bryston tape loop. It’s dead quiet, completely transparent with hardwire bypass in and tape loop toggled on and off. Couldn’t hear any difference. That’s great. I now know for sure it is transparent ...

I am taking a shitty recording right now (but love the album) and REALLY punching and shining it up. Better than the CO ever did with album!  Exhilarating!

Honestly this thing is sickly good. I put all the dials on flat and turn gain way down below unity gain. Going back and forth between hardwire bypass while adjusting amp volume to correct. EVEN ON WELL BELOW UNITY GAIN THE UNIT IS TRANSPARENT. Tha...

Best thing about unit is that any master gain cuts are handled beautifully with no signal integrity degradation. Meaning bigger boosts are handled with aplomb and no where near distorting the line. It is another “magic box” in the analog realm to ...

Anyone serious about tone control as hi fi as possible should check out  Hendyamps Michelangelo. It is the first unit to sound superior to my beloved Charter Oak PEQ-1 and will be replacing both of mine. Sound is stupendous, glorious!  True improv...

My SS Hendyamps Michelangelo is finally shipping to me. Am excited for the new toy!  Will report here after a while once I’ve had some time with it.   
Sweetest sounding 12AU7?
Re issue GL is brighter with clearer mids. BB sounded muddy in comparison. I liked reissue GLs better.

Used to play around with that one and Aphex. Those work differently as you stated than EQ. High end EQ is more natural and true to life and indeed more resolute. I won’t deny I enjoyed their punchy sound for a while. Did you know FM radio used to ...

“An important step communicating is knowing, or trying at least to get bearing on what’s discussed in the first place, and its context. Your use of an analog mastering broadband EQ device is likely as an active component and thus a buffer or imped...

“There’s much more to a DSP than that, not least also acting as a crossover at the same time (we’re talking months of optimizations in my case tailoring the speaker sound from ground up).” I am understanding and well aware of this. That’s precise...

I am well aware that Loki Max is ANALOG. if you’d take the time to read the whole thread, you wouldn’t find me at all confused.
