Mono Class-A Discrete 4 Band EQ
Phoenix Audio's DRS Gyrator EQ 500 is a unique and musical EQ with versatile applications. You can use it as a mix buss EQ to tone shape and balance low and high frequencies or as an EQ for single instruments. Take advantage of the Class-A circuit by driving the signal to add musical saturation. Available as a mono 500-series module, the DRS Gyrator EQ 500 is as powerful as it is fun to use.
4-Bands of Gyration
The Gyrator EQ was first developed during what most consider the golden age of solid-state analog audio design: the 1970s. Originally designed to emulate the characteristics of an active inductor EQ (think Neve, API), the Gyrator EQ uses a rather clever combination of an amplifier, resistors and capacitors to accomplish incredibly smooth and musical frequency modifications. The modern-day Phoenix DRS Gyrator EQ gives you High, High-Mid, Low-Mid and Low-Frequency bands, each notched to proven frequencies from a shimmering 15kHz on down to a thumping 40Hz. There's also a high pass filter at 80Hz, which can eliminate rumble or be used "against" low-end boosts for an extra range of unique EQ curves. Even at extreme boosts and cuts, the DRS Gyrator EQ's uniquely musical filters maintain the core quality of your original signal, allowing you to make bold, gut-level EQ moves that won't sound harsh, slurred or out of phase. Used more subtly, these four filters are capable of highly coherent tone shaping suitable for full mixes and mastering.
Driving the Output Circuit for More Tone Shaping
Phoenix Audio's renown DSOP-2 output amplifier, with its custom-wound transformer, is able to deliver everything from ultra-clean signals with abundant headroom to fat, fully saturated tones. By driving the output attenuator, one can drive the DSOP-2 output stage for a wide variety of lush, Class-A saturation. Many engineers even use the DRS Gyrator EQ completely flat in order to simply add the musicality of the amplifier circuits.
Versatile And Effortless, Day After Day
The DRS Gyrator EQ is a powerfully versatile, high-quality studio tool. Unlike many Class-A EQs that just do "their thing" due to inherent distortion characteristics, the DRS Gyrator EQ keeps the input signal clean, making it possible for the engineer to keep tones transparent or saturate them to taste. Importantly, doing so is effortless and intuitive due to the DRS Gyrator's straight-forward design and unerring musicality.
- An overall output level with +15dB of additional gain even while the EQ is in bypass, allowing the output fader to be used to drive the output stage and transformer to color and saturate your sound, again even when the EQ is in bypass
- Phoenix Audio's Class-A DSOP-2 Output Amplifier with custom-wound transformer.
- 24v built PSU so you can feel the sound of the 'true' unit and not be limited by running at 16v which is the standard Lunchbox voltage
