The dbx160VU is not wired for stereo linking. Someone would have to modify them to do that.

I had a matched pair and modded them to link the Threshold and Ratio controls. Gain remained independent. Even made a switch to Link/Unlink.

haha yeah great hang, really one the best!

On the REDD.47's they are insanely awesome, nothing quite like em; doesn't hurt that Geoff Emerick gave them the 'They have the sound' seal of approval. For me they will be 'lifer' units.

Back to the DBX 160VU's, I like to set them so the leds are always bouncing.

Thanks everyone for your input. I appreciate it.
I dived in with the DBX 160VU pair. Great news is they are a pair with one power cord and the serial numbers are only off by 2. They were also recently serviced.
I just ordered some adaptor cables for the barrier strips and should have the units working by this weekend. Will update you accordingly.
In the meantime, I also ended up getting a 160x.

I will certainly keep you posted. I read up that Dr Dre used to use the following chain on some vocals:
Sony C800G, Neve 1073, DBX 160VU

Also Glen Ballard used AKG C12VR and C12 through Demeter Preamps into a 160x for Alanis Morissette's biggest record.

Excited!
