Overview

The BBE 282i Sonic Maximizer is a two channel signal processor that will benefit any recording or sound reproduction system. Whether you purchased the Sonic Maximizer for your home studio, P.A., DJ system, or instrument rack, you will find the Sonic Maximizer’s rugged construction and careful electronic design a welcome addition to your sonic arsenal.

The 282iR featuresfeatures unbalanced ¼” phone connectors making it ideal for interfacing with guitar, bass or keyboards.

The 282’s smaller chassis makes it ideal for DJ systems, DAW-based recording environments and space challenged live systems, as well as desktop applications, where space is at a premium and there’ s no 19 rack space available. However, the 282 series delivers exactly the same performance as BBE’s world renowned rack-mounted Sonic Maximizer products.

BBE High Definition Sound compensates for phase and amplitude distortion, restoring the brilliance and clarity of the original content material. The BBE High Definition Sound process begins by applying a linear phase shift across the full frequency range of the signal, which allows the speaker system to reproduce the transients and harmonics in the correct order. The BBE process then compensates for speaker amplitude distortion by progressively boosting lower and higher frequencies, and doing so within the context of the phase correction process. This efficiently creates a fuller, richer sound without excess equalization.

    Comments about BBE 282iQ Desktop Sonic Maximizer with Unbalanced 1\\4" Connections:

    I was reading reviews that products like this are not needed, I get what the purist are saying... BUT me personally I like the product (for the deal I got from GC I didn't lose). I use it primarily for DJ purposes, sounds clean. And yes I do own vinyl and I recommend for those that want that real vinyl sound, this product is not for you. All in all, I would recommend this.

    Comments about BBE 282iQ Desktop Sonic Maximizer with Unbalanced 1\\4" Connections:

    I use this unit every time I play guitar. When I first tried it I was pleasantly surprised that it made a noticeable improvement in my sound. The knobs add clarity on the high-end and oomph on the low. Great price.

    Comments about BBE 282iQ Desktop Sonic Maximizer with Unbalanced 1\\4" Connections:

    After having seen Justnick give the pedal version of this a good review, I bought it. I'm not impressed. Sound-wise, it's like a compressor with separate bass and treble controls. But it is noisy. Even when there's no input signal, it generates a fair amount of noise, and as the input level goes up, so does the noise. I definitely won't use it between my synth and monitors, because of the noise. It might be usable with single coil guitars for live music, where the noise level is already high. Also note that it comes with a very non-standard AC->AC power adapter. Yes, it uses low voltage AC, so don't expect to be able to run it from any other power supply than what it comes with.
