Avalon Design AD2077 overview

  • 1Description

The black AD2077 Dual Mono Mastering Equalizer from Avalon Design is designed to provide accurate equalization with minimal coloration, making it suited for mastering and mixing applications. It features 100% discrete pure class A signal amplifiers, passive and active filter topologies, and a DC-coupled minimalist signal path. This design offers you alternate tone selections in both filter domains while delivering high resolution and wide dynamic range with low noise.

Custom gold rotary switches give accuracy in 0.5, 1, and 2 dB steps. The 104 switched frequencies per channel with x10 range selectors provide frequency selections from 12 Hz to 25 kHz at 1/4 octave intervals.

The Avalon AD2077 Mastering Equalizer is an advanced, low-noise, fully switched parametric equalizer. Designed for absolute signal integrity and musical performance, this equalizer combines the best active and passive filter topologies for sonic excellence. This special combination enables the AD2077 Equalizer to deliver high-speed transient detail for real-world equalization demands. The passive high and low bands offer alternate musical tone range to the full-function active parametric mid bands.

The full-bandwidth twin mid bands provide variable frequency selection (x10 frequency multipliers for very wide range), switched Q, and amplitude control.

The AD2077 Equalizer is a suitable solution for 2-buss music-program equalization and ultra-high performance analog mastering applications.

The advanced true-symmetry design offers high voltage, large headroom, extended bandwidth, and very low noise. The use of 100% discrete, Class A signal amplifiers gives sonic character and a natural harmonic detail that can enhance the program material.
