    dbx 286 s - "Not as good as the previous model 286A!"


    Using with RE20, Mackie Mixer, side by side with 286A. New S model sounds harsh and brittle by comparison. Still a good unit for the money, but I am shopping for another good condition 286A to replace it with. Old model was made in USA, the new one…

    dbx 160X - "Colored sounding Good for live not studio." has images


    If you hit this compressor with a very hard signal you will hear the compression and the sound of the unit. The sound of the unit is not what I want in a compressor for all things. I used this for very specific instruments such as snare drum or at ti…

    dbx 160X - "compression and limiter is great"


    This analog limiter is a rack able unit that can also be used as a compressor as well. This unit is a high quality piece of gear and should not be over looked especially if you need a great limiter. This limiter can not be compared to a software limi…
