Everybody loves the sound of Valve Recording Equipment from 50’s and 60’s or the Vintage Transistor Mic Preamps from 70’s. But what with the Signature Sound of the 80’s?
This decade has also place in the history of Music Production. That was the time when the integrated circuits became quite popular. Silicon Opamps encapsulated in the metal cans replaced the discrete circuitry, creating a new type of sound featured in many Greatest Hits from the 80’s!
The EQ5169 is the first EQ which uses Vintage NOS Integrated Circuits. The same integrated circuits which were used in late 70’s and early 80’s in the Studio Recording Equipment. Those
Components created the characteristic sound of old consoles from the 80’s due to the limited bandwidth and specific distortion performance.
Those first Opamps were the essential ingredient of the 80’s Sound! With The EQ5169 you can get the original Sound of the 80’s in your Recording Studio!
Coupled with Custom HRK Transformers
Input and Output of the EQ5169 are coupled with specially designed custom HRK Transformers. Because of limited space in the 500 Unit, HRK Custom Transformers became smaller, still maintaining no-compromise performance.
All HRK transformers provide the sweet-spot sonic characteristic with pristine detail reproduction. The goal of the design process was to create the transformer which will deliver a balance between the transparency and colouration typical for transformer stages.
The success was achieved by outside-the-box thinking during the design process and use of selected custom materials.
Musical EQ Inspired by Swiss Design
he EQ5169 3 band EQ with the quasi-parametric Mids Control was inspired by 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 boost/cut range of +/- 15dB.
The EQ5169 is very easy to use even for beginners and it is a valuable addition to your studio
