A Designs Audio EM-PEQ Review Pan60I had one here for about a month to check out, ( I would still have it but it was needed back as they were not in production yet ) and aside from the sweet top this thing just blew me away in it's ability to handle the bottom!!!!!! Talk about putting some sweet sweet ass in the bottom - Wow! I generally do not go too heavy on the bottom but this thing sounded so sweet it was like a siren, ( a dangerously fascinating woman who's singing lures seafarers to certain destruction and death ) calling a sailor, it's hypnotic. I tried sculpting a few sources and just loved this thing the way it made things set. I did not want to send it back. When they are available I will, read my lips, will have one! And if my wife isn't looking maybe two. Well, I have waited for what seems like forever and finally I have it!?Wow, wow! boom!!!!!! Oh and once again let me say -talk about putting some sweet sweet ass in the bottom, wow, what a bottom she has!This thing sounds so sweet, it is like a siren, calling a sailor, it's hypnotic! A siren: ( a dangerously fascinating woman who's singing lures seafarers to certain destruction and death ).I absolutely love the new look.?The new units have some very ergonomic knobs that are very very nice looking and very functional. I have large hands and large fingers, but still there are no issues, tight, but, perfection. A very elegant and sweet solution for what is only a limited amount of acreage.As I have mentioned the bottom is a must hear to believe and the rest is creamy smooth.I have been running vocals through this for some time now and it still just blows me away.Pulled some sssssss's out of a vocal track just the other day, push the top a bit and wow, I just love it. If you have a 500 form rack or lunch box, you need this EQ! Just get!!!!!!!If you do not have a 500 format lunchbox or rack - get one!A-Designs has a big winner with this.I want to mention a few things I feel are required for me to like a product or company.1 ) service 2 ) quality3 ) the soundIf the service sucks - well I do not get the gear!If the quality sucks - well I do not get the gear!and if the sound sucks, okay you get it - I do not get the gear!So how does the A-Designs and the EM-PEQ stack up?Well they get top billing from me on service, on quality, and on sound.I got this one having placed my order when I first heard about them, so glad I did. I heard the first run is sold out so I feel special now : ) I was told retail would be $1,450.00 I think MAP is $1,250.00, for this at that price you really need to take a look.Not sure about street but you can always haggle with the dealers on your own.Thanks pan60P.S. It has been some time since I first started writing about my thoughts on this EQ. Now it has been for some time, ( a bit over a year now ) I have to say I love it more now than when I first got it! And yes I do still plan on adding yet another to my rack! Also just a note, watch for news reviews to be posted here very soon! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------It has been some time, and, at last, I have been able to add a second. The A-Designs EM-PEQ. I just love this EQ! The A-Designs EM-PEQ drips with MOJO, like a bone chew-in dog drools!!!! From my perspective, this is a must have for any 500 format lover.
