500 Series Baxendall style EQ and drive featuring an Avedis 1122 input discrete op-amp and a second 1122 driving into a transformer on the output
The Pope Audio BAX 2020 'Beast' combines analog 'Hi' & 'Lo' frequency gain control, in a compact, fuss-free module. This version utilizes an Avedis 1122 on the input, giving the user a chance to "drive" the input stage to get the desired level of "flavor" from the DAO (Discrete Op Amp). Plus it has another 1122 driving into a transformer on the output. When not required in the signal path, the unit is in hard bypass, meaning that the signal is left 100% unaffected by the unit.
The Baxendall equalizer is a simple shelving EQ, but unlike traditional shelving EQs, which have a steep rise above a set frequency (i.e., 2 kHz), a Baxandall shelving curve (named after Peter Baxandall) exhibits a gently rising slope (or falling if you are cutting at a certain frequency), which sounds a lot more natural. These gentle slopes also mean that the signal does not suffer so much phase distortion that other EQ designs can introduce.
