Hi all, i have a rack of four of these awsome EQs.
Can anyone shed some light on these things?
I think they are as good if not better than neve 1073 that i grew up with.
Cheers.

Hi

Back in the 1970's they made a lot of good gear and the company still exists (see links below)

Not sure about the 1073 comment.... it's all about personal tastes

Woah. Never actually seen a E800. If they're anything like the other ADR EQs I've used (Vocal Stressor, which I believe is the E900N, and their Paragraphic) they'll be great but with their own distinct sound. Really grainy (way grainier than the Neves, which I personally describe as grainy in the first place) and pretty damn flexible. You're never gonna convince anyone they're worth more than 1073s, but utility-wise I'd be just as happy to have them in a rack.

Audio & Design make superb equipment that is very inexpensive for the quality you get - close to Prism in quality at a fraction of the price.

How? - Because ADR is a small company and sell direct so there is no extra profit margin for dealers and distributors - so you get the quality at a *very* reasonable price.

I have several ADR items myself.

Excellent and helpful company.
