Description

The MEA-2 is an equalizer that can provide precise equalization with minimal side-effects - it is designed to provide a very transparent signal path where only the desired equalization effect is obtained without adding any particular sonic signature. The MEA-2 is extensively used in mastering but also works well on an insertion point in recording or mixing. The MEA-2 has stepped controls with a fine 0.5dB gain adjustment at low cut/boost settings. Maximum cut/boost per band is 8dB. The MEA-2 is a stereo or 2-channel, four-band precision analogue equalizer with stepped Q/shelf, frequency and cut/boost controls on each band. It is designed for recording and mastering applications where ultimate sonic performance, musicality and precision are required. MEA-2 Features Four separate shelf/bell switchable equalizer sections per channel Unique equalization characteristics, optimized through extensive listening tests Precision stepped controls for accuracy and repeatability Overlapping frequency ranges with 84 settings per channel Excellent channel-to-channel matching Interactive cut/boost and bandwidth controls for more natural operation Low noise and wide dynamic range Electronically balanced inputs and outputs Individual EQ sections are completely switched off when the gain controls are set to 0dB Full bypass when the power is turned off SPECIFICATIONS Maximum boost/cut 8dB/section Minimum boost/cut 0.5dB Frequency settings 19Hz to 27kHz Maximum I/O Level +29dBu Distortion <0.001% Output noise (typical set-up) <-95dBu Enclosure 19-inch 3RU, depth: 280mm Power supply 90-120V, 200-250V, 50/60Hz, 20W

...cutting, especially the low / low mid range area, and also very "transparent" there when boosting. Reminds me of the Maselec MEA2, without the analog sweetness. This thing sounds "straight", not adding anything in terms of flavor. I had something "sweeter" in mind, but certainly the years have changed the way I listen to...
