hi, and welcome.
I assume you mean the DBX 266xl?
Do a search FIRST please before posting?
It's been discussed: Greeting! "Ye Ole DBX 266 Project 1" Keep?
And yeah I had one too, long time ago. Never got it to do what I wanted, so I can't recommend it.
I don't know what you want to use it for but the 160x is ten times the compressor the 266xl wants to be.

DBX 266XL and 266A are completely different compressors.

Thought the 266xl was the successor to the 266A; very similar in construction with. A few more options on the xl.
