Win a 500-series chassis from Lindell Audio!

Between now and April 27th, 2014 Gearslutz.com and Lindell Audio are giving away 4 x 503 Power 500-series chassis and 4 x 506 Power 500-series chassis to 8 lucky review writers. To win one, all you have to do is write a review of any pro audio gear (hardware or software) - at the end of the contest period Jules and the Gearslutz staff will choose 8 of the best reviews after the closing date as winners. Each winner will receive either a 503 Power Chassis or a 506 Power Chassis.

Read more about these amazing units here.

The fine print: Contest closes on April 27th, 2014. Users can enter as many times as they want (each completed review counts as one entry) but users can win only once (remember that reviews are being judged on quality, not quantity). Winners will be notified by Gearslutz PM or by email by May 12, 2014. You must confirm and accept your prize within 7 days of notification or another winner may be selected. The judges' decisions are final and no correspondence will be entered into regarding the outcome. The contest is open to Gearslutz users worldwide. Please remember, you will be liable for any import duty, sales tax/GST or VAT/IVA which may apply, as well as any applicable courier "customs brokerage" fees. Please consult with your local tax authority for more information. Good luck!

BBE Sonic Maximizer 482i
EQ BBE Sonic Maximizer 482i

The BBE Sonic Maximizer 482i uses an interesting adaptive EQ and adjusts phase relationship of various frequencies. What it lacks in controllable functionality, it makes up for in pure and undefinable sweetness. Best used in live situations due to unbalanced jacks.
