MAQ-2NV

The MAQ-2NV is

a stereo mastering equalizer based on the much-respected EQ-2NV. This two-rack-space digitally controlled analog parametric EQ offers similar topology to vintage 1081/1083 models, but with welcome improvements. Newly designed Class-A discrete single-ended amplifiers and true inductor/capacitor (L/C) circuitry add greater clarity and dynamic range to the musicality of the vintage-era models. The MAQ-2NV also has a discrete high-current Class-A balanced output stage. Built to satisfy personal requests from mastering engineers who have heard the EQ-2NV, it features extended high and low frequency ranges, EQ gain switches, linkable channel control, and very low frequency high pass filters. Each channel’s four EQ band gain switches range in ½ dB steps from 0 to +/-3dB, and 1dB steps from +/-3 to +/- 8dB, and each band has separate pushbutton bypass switches. There are Left and Right channel bypass switches, the channel high pass filter frequencies are 15, 20, 25, 32, 40, and 50 Hz, and the Link switch sets both channels from the left channel controls for identical EQ curves. As in the EQ-2NV, the front panel input selector / sensitivity switch offers the option of using the signal from the MAQ-2NV's transformer-coupled line input (ranging from +8dbm to -20dbm), or the patched signal from an NV preamp or other device.



EQ2-NV

The EQ-2NV

(two channel equalizer) greatly modernizes the classic British “1081/1083”-type design. This single-rack-space digitally controlled analog parametric EQ offers similar topology to vintage 1081/1083 models, but with welcome improvements. Newly designed Class-A discrete single-ended amplifiers and true inductor/capacitor (L/C) circuitry add greater clarity and dynamic range to the musicality of the vintage-era models. The EQ-2NV also has a unique discrete high-current Class-A balanced output stage. To make life in the studio (and on the road) easier, the EQ-2NV has been specifically designed to integrate with the patch loop in Great River NV Series microphone preamplifiers (with a single TRS ¼” cable), for complete flexibility in tracking and mixing. The front panel input selector / sensitivity switch offers the option of using the signal from the EQ-2NV's transformer-coupled line input (ranging from +8dbm to -20dbm), or the patched signal from the NV preamp. When connected via the patch loop, the four EQ sections are inserted between the microphone (or DI) input’s first gain stage (with level control and metering) and the preamplifier’s output gain stage and "big iron" transformer (also with level control and metering). This routing flexibility provides a broad range of sonic/harmonic possibilities and maintains a full Class-A signal path.



EQ32

The 32EQ is

a new 500-series version of the EQ and filters from the renowned Harrison 32 Series consoles. The 32EQ incorporates the original specifications and with support directly from the original designers at Harrison Consoles it is guaranteed that the prized characteristics of the original were maintained in the new design. Like all Great River and Harrison products, the 32EQ is designed and built in the USA. Low, Low-Mid, Hi-Mid, and High EQ bands with Gain and Frequency controls Low and High Band "peaking" switches EQ in/out switch Harrison's renowned High- and Low-pass filters with sweepable frequency Filter in/out switch An Internal jumper provides selection of the "vintage" feedback design, or a non-feedback option
