    dbx 166A - "All-purpose compressor"


    Two channels: Gate, VCA compressor, over easy/hard knee, peak limiter. UTILIZATION Very easy to use because it has only the most basic controls, which allows you to find the right setting pretty fast. SOUND QUALITY Fabulous, like the legendary 16…

    dbx 166XS - "Suprised me"


    The DBX 166XS is a 2 channel compressor/limiter and gate. It is a rackable unit taking up only 1 rack space and comes in a fresh white color that pops out. Out of all of the DBX products that I have used in the past, I was very surprised on the actua…

  • dbx 160X

    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…

    dbx 164 - moosers's review


    The DBX 164 is a compressor/limiter designed for use in the recording studio. It's a really simple piece of gear, with only one parameter to work with. It's an older piece of gear, so it's got RCA connections and isn't balanced. You can however, s…

    dbx 163X - moosers's review


    The DBX 163X is a simple compressor/limiter that comes as a single channel unit. It is an analog piece of gear, and only takes up half a rack space, so if you had two of these you could fit them perfectly in a single space in a traditional rack casi…

    dbx 160 - moosers's review


    The original Dbx 160 comes either as a single channel compressor/limiter, or as two paired together. The one that I've used is the model that came as two in one rack mountable casing. It is an analog piece of gear, with the 160 now coming in a vari…

  • dbx 162

    dbx 162 - moosers's review


    The Dbx 162 is a vintage stereo compressor/limiter. It is in the 160s family, and has the same look and style to many of the models in this line of dynamic processors. The 162 is strictly an analog piece of gear, with no digital parts at all. It h…

    dbx 161 - moosers's review


    The Dbx 161 is a vintage, single channel compressor/limiter that is no longer being made. The unit is made up of analog components, and I believe it has XLR connections but I'm not 100% sure as the one that I've used was already racked and ready to …

    dbx 160X - moosers's review


    The dbx 160X is an analog compressor/limiter. It has XLR connections in the back and is rackable - it will take up a single rack space. The metering is smartly made and the bright LEDs help you to see exactly where you level is at. UTILIZATION The …
