The AD2077 mastering equalizer has an alluring design that optimizes absolute signal integrity. Your signal will pass through 100% discrete pure class A signal amplifiers, state-of-the-art passive and active filter topologies and a DC coupled minimalist signal path. These unique designs offer the professional mastering engineer alternate tone selections in both filter domains while delivering incredibly high resolution and wide dynamic range, with very low noise. Custom gold rotary switches give accuracy in 0.5dB, 1dB and 2dB steps. There are104 switched frequencies per channel with X 10 range selectors that provide frequency selections from 12Hz to 25kHz at 1/4 octave intervals. The Avalon AD2077 is an absolutely impressive and musically transparent analog mastering EQ.
The Avalon AD2077 Pure Class A mastering equalizer is among the most advanced, low noise, fully switched parametric equalizers available today. Designed for absolute signal integrity and musical performance, the AD2077 combines the best active and passive filter topologies for detailed sound shaping. The AD2077 is a perfect solution for two-buss music-program equalization and ultra-high performance analog mastering applications. Features include state-of-the-art, balanced 100% discrete, Pure Class A signal amplifiers, practical user features and rugged hardware designed to deliver true high performance audio for many years.
Passive-Active Filter Design
Avalon equalizers feature the unique combination of both active and passive EQ filters. This special combination enables the AD2077 to deliver high-speed transient detail at the operational extremes of real-world equalization demands. The passive high and low bands offer alternate musical tone range to the full function active parametric mid bands. Passive equalizers have long been a favorite with music lovers around the world . . . full bodied; powerful (up to +/-20dB, 40dB range) and sweet frequency selections are the benefits of the passive high-low EQ bands. The full-bandwidth, twin mid bands provide switched frequency selection (X10 frequency multipliers for very wide range), switched Q (width) and amplitude control.
Minimal Signal Path Design
Avalon's true symmetry design offers high-voltage, large headroom, extended bandwidth and very low noise. The use of 100% discrete, Pure Class A signal amplifiers give the serious mastering engineer unlimited sonic character and a natural harmonic detail that enhances the program material and becomes one with the music itself.
