If playing with these, make sure to read the manual. There is a lot more to them than meets the eye.

i have one coming in of these. I read only good things sofar, im curious to get it in my hands.

Another rare one is the DNA Dymand, do you have any experience with this?

I also bought a DBX 160SL, which works but last time it had an intermittend channel, where the compression did not worked on one channel. After a few minutes it kicked in, im not sure if this could be a VCA Problem or if it need calibration. Do you have experience with these?

I checked the Service Manual but the calibration procedure is about 40 pages long. Can you recommend someone for this kind of work?

I asked DBX but they are not longer supporting these? Kind of strange for such an pro level compressor.
