A-Designs Audio Unveils EM-PEQ

United States
New 500 Series module sonically nods to the classic Pultec EQP-1A sound

26 April 2007 — The classic all-valve Pultec EQP-1A goes down in the record books as one of the most venerated equalisers of all time, loved by both recording and mastering engineers for its almost mythical ability to improve the sound of, well, just about anything running through it. After some lengthy and serious research and development, A-Designs Audio announces that it has managed to capture much of the essence of the famed EQ in a brand new product — and one that fits in a compact 500 Series “Lunchbox” module frame.

Dubbed the EM-PEQ, A-Designs Audio was able to shrink this highly sought after filter design into the now red-hot 500 Series format without compromise to either build quality or sonics. The EQ section design and control layout of the classic EQP-1A has been meticulously maintained, as well as its wonderfully smooth musicality.

Makeup amplification is achieved through the use of the same discrete Class AB amplifier found in A-Designs popular solid-state Pacifica mic pre, putting an extra twist on this classic design.

Additional features include a nickel core output transformer, gold Grayhill rotary switches, Wima capacitors, and a true hard bypass. Instead of using off-the-shelf chokes, A-Designs uses a tapped inductor, custom-wound to the original values. Fully balanced, noise-free operation with modern impedance specs make for simple operation and fast studio integration.

The new EM-PEQ is an approved API™ “VPR Alliance” product, so may also be used in Brent Averill racks and A-Designs Audio’s R52 manufactured by Avedis Audio Electronics.

With the launches last year of the P-1 and EM-Series preamplifiers (EM-Red, EM-Blue, EM-Silver, and EM-Gold), A-Designs Audio is fast becoming a leader in all things “500 Series’. The blend of classic sound and modern function offered by the new EM-PEQ is further proof of a company on the rise, putting quality and creative design above all else.

Available in May 2007, S.R.P. £836.54 plus VAT.
