The xpressor from elysia has just been released in a 19“ version. Further additions to the already available 500 series module are send and return connectors for an external sidechain, plus a superior linear power supply with a shielded toroidal transformer.
Its discrete circuitry running in constant class-A mode has been designed to provide superior audio quality, combining a clear and open sound with a good lot of punch. The complete audio path has been designed without using a single cable.
Many of the unique features of the elysia ‘flagship’ products have been adopted by the xpressor: The auto fast attack mode, switchable release characteristic, and the warm mode switch for instant coloration of the signal.
In order to provide additional control on the compression process, the xpressor also features an integrated sidechain filter, elysia’s special gain reduction limiter and a mix controller for onboard parallel compression.
Its main application areas are stereo buss compression as well as processing single signals and approaching dynamics in creative ways.
The xpressor is made in Germany by the exclusive use of quality components, a four mm aluminum front panel, aluminum housing and solid aluminum knobs. It is available with immediate effect for 990 € / $1,499 excl. VAT.
