Great River Electronics announced the release of its companion equalizer to the Mercenary Edition series of products: the EQ-2 NV.
The EQ-2NV is loosely based on the topology of vintage 1081/1083 models, and its newly designed, Class-A, discrete single-ended amplifiers bring the musicality and control of the 108x greater clarity and dynamic range. The line input is a transformer-coupled bridging type, with sensitivity options ranging from elevated line-level (+8 dbm) down to keyboard and semi-pro levels (-20 dbm), which allows the unit to be employed with both professional-level equipment and in semi-professional applications. The input gain flexibility can also be employed to gain a new texture to the tones produced.
The equalizer is specifically designed to work with the company's NV Series microphone amplifiers' patch loop to significantly improve headroom at one end, a lower overall noise floor and overall greater musicality. When connectedvia the MP-2NV's patch point, the mic and DI inputs are fully functional, aswell as the level control, metering and "big iron" of the MP-2NV's outputamplifier. The equalizer also has a discrete, Class-A balanced output stage, which allows it to function as a complete stand-alone device. It isavailable in single- or dual-channel models.
