Single 31 Band Graphic Equalizer with built-in limiter
"Single 31 Band Graphic Equalizer
With built-in PeakPlus Limiter. When the guys were developing this new series of EQ's they wanted something that would be unique to these EQ's. That's when Roger ( dbx's chief engineer) got another one of his bright ideas and said ""I bet they'll work a lot better if there's a cool limiter built in."" Next thing you know, all the guys are in the studio amazed at the new limiter Roger had designed specially for the 20 Series. Once again, hearing is believing... With a threshold range of 0 to +20dbu, the PeakPlus limiter is designed to tame your program material from the subtlest nuances to the rowdiest hits. Also, the four stage LED ladder gives you a great visual indication as to what the limiter is doing.
20 Series EQ's. You used to have to settle for second best in a reasonably priced EQ but not any more. With the new 20 Series from dbx Professional Products you get a great EQ circuit, a graceful yet powerful limiter and the revolutionary new design of the Type III Noise Reduction. Check out the dbx 20 Series graphic EQ's at your pro audio outfitter. You'll see, with the 20 Series EQ's you get both MORE!!!
òRevolutionary instant encode/decode Type III Noise Reduction in-circuit at the push of a button. Increases S/N ratio by up to 20dB.
òPatent-pending PeakPlus Limiter threshold range from 0dBu to +24dBu (off) can transparently tame the wildest hits or the subtlest nuances of any signal.
òAn extremely high quality EQ, patent-pending TYPE III Noise Reduction, and the elegant new PeakPlus Limiter all in one great sounding box.
òFour segment LED bargraph for BOTH Gain Reduction AND Output Level offers the most comprehensive visual feedback available.
òStatus LEDs offer visual feedback for all settings on the front panel.
