Mastering EQ: Bax EQ VS API 500 VS others

Hi there!

I use a Prism Titan interface for converter with a SSL X-Mynx summing (from the output of the Titan).
I need to use insert on the master module of SSL.
I will use with a stereo compressor (not choose for now) + a stereo EQ, for 2bus mastering purpose.
What do you think the most versatile? I hesistate between an API 2500 bus compressor + :
- Dangerous Music Bax EQ
or
- API 5500 EQ
or
- Maag Audio EQ4M

I also check, if I have budget for:
- Manley EQP1A
or
- GML 8200

Thanks a lot!

Spend some more money for Maselec MEA 2 EQ.You will never look for another ones if you buy Maselec.
I do have Dangerous BAx EQ,Millennia NSEQ 4,AVALON 747,Maselec MLA4,and Silver Bullet (it has also BAX EQ style ).
And If I had more money will take Maselec MEA 2.After some years trying and checking Eqs.
All my Eq now are killer,but if I start now from zero it will be Maselec.Some mastering guys like it more than GML 9500.

I'd like to revitalise this post and check which Mastering EQs people went with.

I am on the hunt for a great 1U EQ, or a 2U at the most.

Very partial to acquiring a Tonelux Equalux, so if anyone has any experience with this bit of kit I'd appreciate info on it.

I think the API 5500, Maag EQ4M, BAX EQ would be a good 1U choice but it is such a difficult decision.

Feel free to shoot me your faves/ alts also. Thanks again!

I have a 5500 over my 'instrumental' bus, and then the plugin Bax EQ over the entire mix.

I love the 5500, it's very flexible, but I can't help but think, having used the Bax EQ plugin, that the hardware version of the Bax may have a better top end shelf for mixbus duties than the 5500.

If you're just getting one, I'd probably say the 5500.
