these prices are pretty good in deed.

I've sent vintagecity two emails but didn't get a reply so far.
this can't be because of language problems, since I'm a local.
but maybe they're just on a summer holiday?

i emailed 'em yesterday regarding pricing, and they got right back to me. isn't it odd that a German Co. has it's prices listed in US dollars? they also seem ready to haggle on bulk purchases...

I emailed them last week and they got right back to me with pricing. Seems like a great deal. I just realized that the racks don't include phantom though, so keep that in mind.

Disregard the phantom comment. I double checked my quote and the phantom is only $40 more. $890 plus shipping for a pair of 676a's with phantom. Of course shipping might be a good amount from Germany.

Just today, I received a rack that Matthias made me for a pair of Neumann PEV EQs. Looks nice, works perfect. I ordered on Friday, and got it Tuesday. I haven't ordered any modules from him, but the VTC rack is fantastic, and pretty cheap for what you get.

BTW: Shipping for the empty rack was $90 Fedex from Germany to Chicago; if I wanted the less expiditious German Air Mail method, it would have been $50. Not so bad, considering, but you can probably plan on doubling those figures for a rack with modules in it.

EMT 251

It does.

Is that thing closer to a 250 or a 252 in sound?

I didn't get to a/b them, but to me, like a higher-fi version of the 251. It has an noticeable extended frequency response, more parameter controls, more programs, and a remote control port, and the nifty LED screen (the one I checked out looks like a very, very old etch-a-sketch, which I was told is common, and near impossible to replace). You still feel like a jet pilot with it, but you can get more complex with it. I think you can use the 252 remote with it, but I'm not sure. I look into it next time I'm at Glenwood. For $4,500, that seems like an incredible deal if it's in good working order... I saw one for $8,000 a month ago.

I LOVE the 250. The 252 does less for me.

Thanks, e-cue.

Hi,

the 252S is the rack version of the 251.
There was an interface card for the 251, to have a 252S remote attached.

251 and 252 don't have the 250 algorythm. There was (and is) an 250 program update avaible at Barco Emt, which replaces the "space" algorythm with an 250 program.

Soundwise there's a difference to the original 250, because of the original converter and filter design. The 250 has the "direct mids" in the reverb, which the 251 hasn't. The 251/252 has all the reverb cluster which you could edit for left an right, quite cool.

That doesn't mean the 251/252 isn't good, just different than the original.


regards,

wolfgang
