Symetrix 525

Saw a couple of Symetrix 525's going cheap in the music store.

Waste of rackspace or worth grabbing ?

I've been using them for years. Easy and good sounding comps. Not what I grab first but if your looking for some extra versitale compressors then these are great.

Go for it. I like mine, smashes up room tracks nice and sounds good on distorted guitar.

I've had mine since 86. What they said.

Definately grab them. I use mine to totally crush the drum submix for parallel compression, and it sounds awesome. The gate feature I've found to be sorta useless, but the comp is more than great. IMO its not that great on program that is more of a constant level (distorted guitars, stereo mix, etc...), but material that is very dynamic will work well with this comp.

Got mine for $70, and it was well worth that price.
