Pultec and the EAR EQ's

Hi Tim,

I know your EQ designs are based on Pulse Technologies, can you give any detailes on how they are similar and how they are different. What did you "improve" on in your design and how you feel your EQ's fit in todays modern mastering chain? I know a few collegues who use your EQ's (and love them) and I use the older Pultecs myself (EQP1A3's with the API op-amps, I like the low end slightly better then the tube ones). I've owned most of the mastering EQ's out there and always fall back on the old passive design with the make-up gain, still sounds the best to my old ears.
Any thoughts?
