Comments about dbx 160A Compressor/Limiter:

Been using mine for 20+ years. It is reliable, tough as hell (my rack fell outta my truck at about 20 mph and all I had to do was put the knobs back on, and that was 10 years ago) Have drug the thing in and out of 100's of gigs and it still works as good as the day i bought it. Yea it is a little pricey, but you only have to buy it once.

dbx 160A

By Ric Brush

Comments about dbx 160A Compressor/Limiter:

Straight-forward controls make this unit easy to set-up and operate, and...my bass rig has never sounded better! p.s. Thanks to GC - they didn't have the item in stock, so special ordered it for me. I had it within a week and got it at a great price too.

Amazing

By David

from Mass

Comments about dbx 160A Compressor/Limiter:

This thing is incredible, the knobs are huge and it gives you a real analogue feel. Another thing is that even though it doesn't have attack and release settings, it always seems to give you the perfect sound every time. This thing always sounds great, get it. Only a 4 star because of price.

Rec/Sound Eng.

By QualityAudio01

Comments about dbx 160A Compressor/Limiter:

One of the best pieces of gear I've used in the studio and live sound. The only draw I can't say is too much money for a single channel comp/limiter.
