The xfilter is a true linked stereo equalizer with the heart and soul of our flagship EQ, the museq. It gives you the expensive sound of an all class-A equalizer in a surprisingly affordable package, with a precise stereo image based on computer-selected, stepped pots and low tolerance film caps.
This EQ is serious about flexibility. It offers high and low shelf bands which can be switched into high and low cut filters with resonance, two mid peak filters with wide and narrow Q, plus additional passive LC stages with shielded coils for a glorious top end.
With its exceptionally open sound, straight transient projection and solid punch, the xfilter is the perfect match for your xpressor – or any other piece of delicious outboard gear!

it's finally complete! just got the elysia xfilter 500 and loving it.

- It is not a colour box, Hence only getting a 4 on sound quality. It is however clean and strong while maintaining all the goodness of the signal while adjusting the problem area. I have been using this on the 2 buss and its so far...
I have the XFilter rack version and agree with pretty much everything he says. I would just add that the ease of use of the rack looks to me to be significantly better than that of the 500, basically because of the compromises that have had to be made to fit the control layout into the 500 format.
