DBX 160 SL
The luxury compressor from DBX
The dbx 160 SL combines the best qualities of the original DBX 160 VU and the DBX 165 with the highest audio quality. Used correctly, the 160 SL gives the signal more space and depth. If necessary, the DBX can really pop it without being unmusical. Both channels can be coupled with stereo signals. The coupling is realized by means of true RMS power summing. This guarantees musical processing of the stereo signal.
DBX has made a real statement in the use of materials with the 160 SL: More is not possible ...
The workhorse among compressors
The dbx 1066 compressor is not only suitable for the stage. Due to its low distortion and noise values - due to the newly developed V2 VCA - the dbx 1066 also feels at home in the studio and impresses with its high precision and its own sound, which is particularly suitable for punchy drum sounds. Both channels can be coupled with stereo signals. The coupling is realized by means of True-RMS-Power Summing, this guarantees a reliable and yet "musical" processing of the signal.
Ramsa WZ DE 45
The digitale EQ from Ramsa
Ramsa is best known as a manufacturer for its 12/2 speaker, which was mainly used by entertainment bands due to its compact size and performance. However, this narrow focus is doing this manufacturer an injustice. Ramsa developed a lot of audiophile treasures in the 80s and 90s and pioneered digital signal processors. The WZ DE 45 has some special features: On the one hand, the DE 45 sounds very inconspicuous. In addition, the WZ DE 45 has very good sounding notch filters for effective correction of room resonances or other spikes in the frequency response. The music signal always remains intact. Thanks to its digital connections, the WZ DE 45 becomes part of the “in the box” system and avoids unnecessary conversions.
Millennia NS EQ 2
Ultracleaner Shunt EQ with Character
The NS EQ2 equalizer is characterized by its incredible musicality. A transparent solid state path or a subtle, colorful tube path can be chosen for the perfect fit. With both paths, the Millennias always sound extremely clean, stable and magnificently detailed. Its bass response is pitch black, making the signal dark without smearing. The mids are processed without softening the attack, and the high frequency spectrum is the definition of silky smooth. Our devices have the best sounding original Telefunken tubes (NOS = New Old Stock). This makes the Millennias especially suitable for mastering on stems or stereo tracks.
Millennia STT 1
The high end Channel Strip
Our two Millennia STT1s contain the legendary NS EQ2. This equalizer is characterized by its outstanding musicality. You can choose between solid state paths or tube paths. The Millennias always sound extremely clean, stable and in great detail. Its bass is pitch black, making the signal dark without smearing. The mids are finely resolved without softening the attack and the highs are really silky smooth.
Our devices have the best sounding original Telefunken tubes (NOS = New Old Stock). This means that the Millennias are not only suitable for individual tracks, but also especially for mastering on the stems or stereo tracks.
Ramsa WZ DM 30
The early digital EQ
The Ramsa WZ DM 30 was one of the first good sounding equalizers. Today EQ plugins are so good that the DM 30 has now moved to the side rack.
Still a nice and good device.
The musical compressor
The Millennia STT1 includes the Millennia TCL2. This compressor can be switched either before or after the EQ. The TCL2 is an optoelectronic compressor with a choice of tube or transistor circuit. The TCL2 sounds incredibly transparent and musical. Like all optical compressors, its processing behavior is slower than that of VCA compressors. Brute pumping effects are thus less possible, but also not wanted. In contrast, the TCL2 gives the music more weight, more consistency and more depth. The TCL2 can probably do this better than any other compressor.
