Purple Audio TAV 10 Band Inductor EQ (Demo Deal) – No Longer Available

10-band inductor-based graphic EQ for 500 Series frames

Product Description

The Purple Audio TAV 10 Band Inductor EQ is a new take on the console graphic, with ten easy to use bands. Each band uses a high quality inductor and carefully selected caps to set the center frequency. At full boost and full cut the bands are narrow enough to still be useful individually, but at lower settings the bands widen out for more gentle shaping. Even at full boost and cut, the filters are shaped to be musical and useful.

An illuminated push button for relay true bypass (green) allows for easy comparison with unprocessed source material. A Tricolor LED meters the signal. With the low and high cut switched out, and all four bands set to 0, the frequency response is +/- 0.25dB from 15Hz to 25kHz, and -3dB at 60kHz.

With specialized input and output transformers, the TAV has plenty of headroom, even at full boost. The entire circuit is discrete, with no electrolytic capacitors in the signal path, and no servo amps. With only two active stages, the current draw is low enough to work in any rack, and leave plenty of juice for other modules.

Features:
  • Each band boost or cut by 12dB
  • Relay True Bypass
  • Tricolor LED level meter
  • Transformer balanced in and out
  • Discrete signal path
  • No electrolytic caps in signal path
  • Current consumption: 60mA
  • Over Current Resettable Fused (prevents any module problem from affecting your rack)
  • ROHS - Lead Free
For easy serviceability and tweaking, the Purple discrete opamps can be replaced with any standard discrete opamp or a DIP-8 IC.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
