The SPL Vitalizer MK2-T is the tube version of the Vitalizer MK2. The tubes are employed in the mid-hi processing and in the Stereo Expander circuitry for the summed signal. Coil filtering stages ideally complement vintage tube sound characteristics. Multi award winning patented technology. Likely the best audio enhancer available.
The Vitalizer applies psychoacoustic and audiometric principles to achieve a verifiable improvement while enhancing the sound. The Vitalizer processes only the original signal and generates no artifacts. SPL's patented filtering techniques highlight the richness of the audio signal in all its detail, while the interactive parameters make it possible to alter the sound in a musical and effective way. This unique combination of precise filtering and intuitive usability enable you to instantly make any music production more stimulating and natural. Music and speech are made clearly distinguishable and comprehensible, loudness more intense, and the whole soundscape becomes wider.
The frequency spectrum is usually divided into three frequency bands: highs, mids and lows, all of which are provided in the Vitalizer, even though, as opposed to conventional usage, low and mid filter settings are interrelated. The high frequency control allows processing of high frequencies and harmonics. You can adjust each of the three frequency bands separately and control the intensity of the process independently.
