Description

The Millennia NSEQ-2 sets itself apart from other parametric EQs you may have had your hands on. Go ahead and get radical with the four bands, you won't have issues with distortion as you go about your sculpting. That's because the stereo NSEQ-2 aims for transparency, lending a big, clear, clean sound that's refreshing to work with. More than that, the NSEQ-2 features Millennia's Twin Topology design, meaning you have the benefit of solid-state and tube signal paths to choose from, for double the EQ options. Each voice lends a touch of the sound characteristics you'd expect and want from that type of signal path, but achieves it through Millennia's smart, minimalist designs to yield maximum sonic integrity and heightened musical reality. The NSEQ-2 is a natural choice for mastering applications but ideal for anyone seeking an authoritative-yet-gentle hand of stereo EQ.



  • Purity in sound and design
  • Millennia gear is made for detail



Purity in sound and design
Everything about the Millennia NSEQ-2 is designed to facilitate smooth, musical EQing, whether it's subtle refining or surgical sculpting you need. To achieve its clear, clean, seemingly transparent sound, the NSEQ-2 intentionally features a minimalist design, a departure from most classic and modern EQs. Millennia incorporated only one active stage in the audio signal path. Compared to common parametric EQs that employ three to seven active amplifiers, the NSEQ-2 is able to remain highly musical and pure at the same time. That's not to say the NSEQ-2 isn't flexible. Millennia equipped this premium EQ with its signature Twin Topology. At the push of the button, you can choose between tube and solid-state sound characteristics, both of them highly musical and refreshingly clear.



Millennia gear is made for detail
Founder and chief designer John LaGrou takes the same approach to his exceptional audio gear as he does to the wine he cultivates in the California countryside. Detail matters, it's everything. Whether in a vintage of wine or your multi-track mix, taken together, those details can make a major difference in the end result. Millennia equipment celebrates those fine, subtle points, bringing you gear that's built with uncompromising quality to deliver purity in music.

    “...this is an excellent machine capable of very fine results irrespective of the of the technology in the amplification. Although, like most sane people, I would normally find it difficult to enthuse about a simple equalizer, this really is something very special and I have only come across one other similar device which I found as audibly exciting. I would expect (the NSEQ-2) to become a very common entry in the equipment inventory of most mastering houses and top-end studios over here once the word gets out."

    "You've heard of the mythical 'straight wire with gain.' Well, the NSEQ-2 is as close to an analog 'straight wire with gain' as I have heard in 27 years of audiophile and professional engineering work."

    "Millennia gear is essential to me. I want the most high-resolution image I can get during tracking. If I want to distort, subvert, or otherwise destroy it downstream, well that's easy."
