When giving suggestions on gear alternatives I like to stay in the same price range. It seems like a lot of people (not just here but the entire audio world in general) think that nothing else works besides the top 5 products of that type. We are such snobs and it is very off-putting to someone looking for advice but without a pocket full of hundreds. I wish had had the money to refer to the DN360, BSS Opal, or even DBX 2231 as "cheap." I guess it's all relative.
if you look second hand, you can pick up KT stuff quite cheap, and to be frank, nothing i have used comes close to the quality and reliability of a DN360. 400 for a second hand eq that has lasted me 10 years, compared to 200 that i spent on a B*&^$#$ that died a year later..... speaks for its self really
