SPL PQ Mastering Equalizer - Black

19-inch rackmount, fully parametric, dual-channel five-band mastering equalizer in black
MFR# SPLPQ-BL

Product Description

The SPL PQ Master Equalizer is a fully parametric, dual-channel five-band equalizer. The PQ Mastering Equalizer

The PQ based on SPL's 120 V Rail Technology. All five bands can each be activated or deactivated and you got the possibility (for every single band) to separately switch between Constant Q and Proportional Q. This kind of circuit has not yet been achieved in any other equalizer. Several details of this revision were adjusted to current requirements. Each channel can completely be activated or deactivated, thanks to Auto-Bypass, even automated in a freely selectable time frame. Bypass of each band and constant Q of the left side can be controlled by the right side in Link mode.

Another highlight is the possibility to boost or cut the amplitude to 20 dB. If you only wish minor changes of the music material, you can reduce the intensity of the boost or cut by using the 1/4 Gain-Switch, which regulates the potentiometer from max ±20 dB to ±5 dB cut. This gives you the possibility to perform small corrections, as common in Mastering or higher amplitudes in Proportional-Q mode. Thanks to detent potentiometers, a precise recall is very easy to realize. You can adjust parameters Gain, Frequency and Q in 41 steps with detent potentiometers.

Long time user of Buzz Audio REQ 2.2, GML and Crane Song mastering equalizers.
Sporadically had chance to use vintage Sontec eq, as well as, some of previous SPL eqs.
With PQ SPL finally hit the right point for equalizer that is both pleasing to music content, precise, clean and simply must have.
Although not inexpensive, it is priced right IMHO, reasonably high for the top quality high-end studio instrument.
Kudos to SPL.

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!

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.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
