At the 2007 Winter NAMM show, A-Designs Audio announced the EM-PEQ ($1,500) equalizer, which fits in a compact 500 Series module frame size and maintains the EQ section design and control layout of the Pultec EQP-1A. Makeup amplification is achieved through the use of the same discrete Class-A/B amplifier found in A-Designs Audio’s solid-state Pacifica mic pre.
Additional features include a nickel-core output transformer, gold Grayhill rotary switches, Wima caps and a true hard bypass. A-Designs uses a custom-wound tapped inductor wound to the original values.
The new EM-PEQ is an approved API VPR Alliance product and may also be used in Brent Averill Enterprises racks and A-Designs Audio’s R52, manufactured by Avedis Audio Electronics.
