dbx DriveRack 260 Equalization and Loudspeaker Control System for Live and Contractor Sound Applications

The DBX DriveRack 260 is a processor designed for complete system control of equalization, dynamics and routing possibilities in live or contractor sound applications.  Its powerful processing includes both a linkable 28-band graphic and 9-band parametric EQ, while system dynamics are controlled by the built-in compressor. Further component protection is provided by DBX's PeakStopPlus® limiters, which help protect against too much power and sudden transient spikes.

Before users adjust the EQ, they may want to utilize the internal Pink Noise Generator and Real Time Analyzer to get familiar with the room acoustics. In addition, an easy to assign, flexible alignment time delay and handy 15V phantom powered mic input are also provided for further room management and control.

The goal of a high-quality control processor is to help "dial in" a room and contribute to the overall system performance without directly interfering with audio integrity. Custom templates are built-in for specific amplifier and speaker combinations with user setups easily adjusted using the Wizard setup system and complete DriveWare™ GUI control.

An indispensible tool for maximizing audio quality in a number of environments, the DriveRack 260 is derived from an already proven series of processors and continues the tradition of providing flexible system control using simple, intuitive interfaces.

            Comments about dbx DriveRack 260 Control System:

            Setting up the DR 260 from DBX to communicate with a PC that does not have a DB9 connection can be a trial. There is very little information available that will help overcome problems. Once communication issues are resolved, and you get your head arround how to manipulate the settings, the DR 260 is a very versatile piece of equipment. For 3 Way Active sound systems it pretty much totaly fits the bill!

            I have not had the oportunity to reveiw the sonic performance of the DR 260 as yet. But I have feed the unit with a signal and conducted some tests with a LMS analyzer, all appears to be AOK.

            The issues that I have with the unit on a negative note are:-

            Poor supplied literature (Manual) Not enough information on how to set and use the DR 260 and certainly not enough information on how to resolve comms issues.

            Build quality is generaly good however I would have expected that the front fascia panel would have been de-burred!! Sharp edges all round is not a good selling point

              I use dbx 260 for orchestras and live sound reinforcement. The wizard will help you to setup your system in a snap and you can twaek it according to your likings. Automatic feedback supression works very well and the compressor is simply great.

                Comments about dbx DriveRack 260 Control System:

                I got this to replace a failing EAW processor at a church. It's amazing to hear the before and after. This is the best the system has ever sounded. The KF300e and SB330 speakers are not on the built in list, which means more manual adjustments are required, but entering the correct data was not hard. Very impressed.
