EQ5169 | Classic Baxandall 3 Band Equalizer from 80’s

Eq5169 2 Band Baxandall Equalizer From 80S Fp 1

Everybody loves the sound of Valve Recording Equipment from the ’50s and ’60s or the Classic Transistor Mic Preamps from the ’70s. But what with the Signature Sound of the ’80s?

This decade has a place in the history of Music Production. This was the time when integrated circuits became quite popular.

Silicon Operational Amplifiers encapsulated in the metal cans replaced the discrete circuitry, creating a new type of sound featured in many Greatest Hits from the ’70s and ’80s!

The EQ5169 is most probably the Only EQ that uses Vintage NOS Integrated Circuits. The same integrated circuits were used in the late ’70s and early ’80s in the Studio Recording Equipment.

Those components created the characteristic sound of old consoles from the ’80s due to the limited bandwidth and specific distortion performance.

Early IC Opamps were the essential ingredient of the 80s Sound! With the EQ5169 you can get the Genuine Sound of the ’80s in your Recording Studio!

HRK Active Transformer

Hrk Active Transformer

Bart Hrk has developed a proprietary design for an Active Transformer, aimed at addressing the limitations of traditional passive transformers.

Traditional passive transformers are known to be vulnerable to electromagnetic interference, such as 50/60Hz hum and HF RF smog. Additionally, their frequency response is contingent upon load and source impedance, which adversely affects the overall performance of analog studio equipment.

The HRK Active Transformer is a game changer that not only resolves the issues associated with passive transformers but also retains and amplifies the desired characteristics of the transformer output stage. This includes the enrichment of harmonic content and the enhancement of tonal response.

What sets the HRK Active Transformer apart is its ability to deliver the rich, beloved sound that audio enthusiasts seek, including the harmonic content and tonal response, while simultaneously eliminating the drawbacks of passive transformers.

Furthermore, the Active Transformer introduces a delicate “Air” effect and boasts an extended low-frequency (LF) performance, adding depth and clarity to the sound.

Another remarkable feature of the Active Transformer is its dynamic saturation, which is dependent on the output level. As the output signal level increases, the Active Transformer exhibits greater saturation, reminiscent of the warm and rich sound produced by classic studio equipment.

In summary, the HRK Active Transformer is an innovative solution that offers superior sound quality, eliminates electromagnetic interference, and enhances harmonic content and tonal response. It is an invaluable asset for professionals and audiophiles seeking to elevate their audio experience.

7 Days Return Policy

Our return policy is a part of the general Terms & Conditions, which you must acknowledge at the checkout. We stand by fair rules and a win-win approach.
We understand that our customers may wish to return the product and we provide such an option.
However, because we are a small company, we can’t afford to run a grade B outlet shop like big distributors and provide a 30 day return period. We can’t also scrap every returned unit.
We can charge our customers more to offset the cost of the returns, and this is what major distributors do. Or we can keep our prices low and hope that our customers will appreciate our policy.
This is why we provide the 7 days test period after receiving the package with the ordered items. If you wish to return the item, we will accept the return request, provided that the item is not damaged.

If the item is damaged during transport, we will do our best to help you and provide a replacement product.
