EQ5169 | Classic Baxandall 3 Band Equalizer from 80’s

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!

NOS Integrated Circuits

The EQ5169 is made with original NOS Integrated Circuits manufactured in the 70s and 80s.

This is a unique feature of our product!

This means that you will get the most authentic tone of the 169 type EQ.


Musical EQ Inspired by Swiss Design

The EQ5169 a three-band EQ with the quasi-parametric Mids Control inspired by a very popular classic Swiss console design.

Although the EQ5169 may look simple, it gives almost infinite creative possibilities thanks to the musical EQ curves and the intuitive controls.

The LOW and HIGH Bands have three frequency settings selectable by three-position toggle switches.

The sweepable MID section covers the frequencies between 200Hz and 8kHz. All 3 Bands have a boost/cut range of +/- 15dB.

The EQ5169 is very easy to use even for beginners and it is a valuable addition to any professional studio setup.

HRK Active Transformer

Bart Hrk developed the propitiatory design of an Active Transformer to solve the problems of the common passive transformers.

Passive transformers are susceptible to electromagnetic interferences (50Hz Hum, RF Smog) and the frequency response dependents on load and source impedance, negatively influencing the overall performance of analogue studio equipment.

The HRK Active Transformer delivers the sound that we love, including the harmonics content and the tonal response, and removes all the hassles associated with passive transformers.

The Active Transformer produces a subtle “Air” effect and provides extended LF performance.

The Active Transfomer saturation depends on the output level. Higher output signal levels will saturate the Active Transfomer more, like in the classic studio equipment.

7 Days Return Policy

Our return policy is a part of the general Terms & Conditions, which you must acknowledge at the checkout. We stand for 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 providing the 30 days return period. We can’t also scrap every returned unit.
We could 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, providing that the item is not damaged.

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