  • Not bad

    As reviewed by KRISTIAN THOMPSON on 11/3/2012

    Just bought this unit. right off as the previous reviewer quoted is that there is NO on/off switch. Another thing that I find annoying is that when you use the by pass switch, no matter if you are turning the bypass on or off, it makes a hell of a POP throughout the entire system. and when you are playing live and setting up sound (granted you probably wont' be using the bypass switch) but if you do, you had better turn everything off or you are going to get blasted. other than that, the unit seems to be very good. Quite operation and the sliders are very responsive. I had two different Nady units, on one, a channel just went out completely and the other had a VERY noticible hissing noise in it that could not be EQed out. they both had the same issue also with the bypass switch that this unit has. Because of the previously mentioned issues with the NADY's, is the reason I ran to GC to get a new unit and this is what I picked up. definately and improvement over the NADY's that I had (2 ea).

  • good quality

    As reviewed by john curtis on 1/19/2012

    the dbx 215s is a good quality equalizers, the electronic parts used to build is good quality, knobs, sliders etc.. for sound, i would rate it a four, 6db setting is ok, but, using the 12db would be recommended. this unit is best used for studio recording, live sound, or even just home use.. unit is built good, and designed fairly well... very low distortion, quiet operation... one draw back with this unit, is a main on and off switch..."there is no switch" for the most part, i would recommend this equalizer....
