      DBX 162SL Stereo Compressor/Limiter (102924321)

The 162SL will be a leader in signal processing for years to come !

The first thing you'll notice about the dbx 162SL Stereo Compressor/Limiter is its striking front panel, machined from 1/4" aircraft aluminum. The 162SL is adorned with handcrafted solid aluminum knobs, LEDs mounted individually in machined stainless steel housings, custom VU meters with peak indicators, and a heavy-gauge chassis. On the inside, the dbx 162SL combines the best features of all the great dbx compressors, past and present, and gives you more versatile performance than ever before. In addition to having the auto attack/release and hard-knee threshold characteristics of the classic dbx 160, the 162SL offers AutoVelocity manual mode and classic dbx OverEasy mode. Variable attack and release controls, as well as dbx's latest limiting algorithm PeakStopPlus, are included in the 162SL.

The dbx 162SL also features dual proprietary dbx VCA modules. This state-of-the-art implementation of dbx's original Blackmer decilinear VCA boasts an unheard-of dynamic range and ultralow distortion seen only previously in the Blue 160SLs.

It's built of the best parts available including Jensen transformers on each output standard and also takes full advantage of dbx's advanced manufacturing.

    As reviewed by Erik on 10/26/2010

    You can't deny that its a good compressor, but to be completely honest, I don't like it. Something like this just looks better than it sounds flat out. The school I instruct at has a ton of these, and I use them on almost a day to day basis, and compared to everything else out on the market, take that 2 grand and buy a compressor from universal audio. This compressor sounds hardly better than the dbx compressors costing literally 10 times less than this. I'm disappointed.
