yes, that's my original plan - got 4 276 as well. but as people tend to only speak positively about these old consoles and i could get one i keep thinking, what's the better way...

yes, mackie is not that good, but i managed to do some mixes on it, that are ok (to my ears, still) - so that would be the more versatile possibility (4 groups etc.).

i don't know...

Holy sh!t!

I saw your pics before but wanted to express my envy...

I only have two w295b which are one of the best eqs ever made imho

i would love to have more but since prices skyrocketed, it`ll stay like that
(although they`re still cheap for what you get)

I recently picked up a couple. But who in the U.S. knows how to rack and power them?

I love my pair of w295b's. I only wish it had 1 dB steps instead of 3 dB. For mixing I often find the steps too coarse and sometimes for tracking also.....

The Siemens, TAB made Telefunken, and the Neumann eq's are all nice modules. Siemens also purchased a Swiss company called Filtek and made eq modules under the Filtek and BFE brand. All of these have the potential to sound great. It can be tough to get these rack mounted and it can also be a job to get them serviced if they break, but they all sound great. I am not sure who in the U.S. will rack mount them but you can ask Vintage King. Mine where racked and serviced by oliver Archut but he no longer does that work.

Pretty much ANY German module with the square transformer with the typed label that says "H.H." (like the W295 in the photo) is going to be great. I have never heard a mic pre, compressor, or eq module with the "H.H." label transformer in it that was not amazing.

Absolutely love the 295b's on acoustic guitar! The high shelf on those kind of sources is exeptional.

I love my 11 channel Siemens Sitral. It's a fantastic summing box with those delicious EQ's. And the mic pres are as good as vintage neve and my API as well. I mostly prefer recording piano and horns through the V276's and vocals through the Neve.

Before I got on my journey with Siemens, I had heard the V276's and W295's were creamy and warm. And now having owned them all for a while it's exactly what they are.

Highly recommend them.

the w295b isnt bad. as slong as you only use it for high shelfes. rest of the circuit sounds not so good in my opinion. but the high shelf is very, very sexy.
