BBE Sound 882i overview

  • 1Description

The 882i Sonic Maximizer from BBE delivers the sound-improving benefits of a Maximizer signal processor in dual mono operation. The unit is housed in a single rack space chassis with balanced XLR inputs and outputs and is designed for applications requiring low noise, high headroom and +4dBu input levels.

For each channel there is a pair of Lo Contour and Process knobs plus a five-segment LED input level meter. A single function button switches the BBE process on or off in both channels, which is useful for comparing the processed sound to the unprocessed sound.

An LED next to the function button glows green when the BBE process is on and red when the process is off. The Lo Contour controls are for adjusting the level of phase corrected low frequencies in the program material. The Process control is for adjusting the level of phase corrected high frequencies in the program material.

Applications for the unit include multi-track studios, professional and semi-pro sound reinforcement, broadcast transmission, mobile DJ systems, nightclub sound systems and cassette copying.

Two independent BBE Sonic Maximizer signal processors in a single chassis
Applies different phase and algorithms to three separate frequency bands
Variable front panel controls allow the user to adjust the amount of process desired
Process and Low Contour controls per channel
Bypass switch for comparison of processed to unprocessed signal
Balanced XLR and 1/4" inputs and outputs

    BBE882i Sonic Maximizer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference! Couldn't be happier. What a great little chip this Maximizer must have. A+++ in every way. From Keyboards to transferring old cassette tapes to CD's, it's a must! Just makes everything sound better, period.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! I use the BBE882i Sonic Maximizer in my PA system for over 5 years and it works great. Very easy to use and it delivers what it promises. If you want to increase your sound quality, this is the best value and you can hear the difference in sound quality. Would recommend for anyone with a sound system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good. Installed the Sonic Maximizer two weeks ago to add some life to our vocals for our church sound system. The difference was very noticeable and instant, especially on our online live feed. Our sound has expanded in a nice, simple and strong way. Very easy to use. Just plug it in and move the dials as desired. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Addition To Your PA I've always heard and read reviews about the BBE system. I decided to go for it. i am so glad I purchased this unit. It just works! It brightens, fattens and sharpens your overall sound. It can make any dull sound system sound great! Definitely spend the extra money and go with the balanced inputs & outputs. The extra incentive was getting the best price from B&H. No other merchant would even come close to match their price. I only shop at B&H Photo. Thank you gentleman for your service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Addition To Your Audio Rig Pro Audio & Mobile Disc Jockey. Adds awesome music enhancement, crystal clear highs, mids are distinct and provides excellent bass response.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says I'm only giving this four stars because I haven't really had the chance to put it to the test in a full venue. We rehearse in a 12 x 12 room (which is tough for a nine piece horn band) but even in there we can hear a noticeable difference in the sound when the BBE is engaged. As one band member said, it just sounds cleaner, and that it does. We have a gig coming up where we'll really be pushing it and I'm looking forward to hearing that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best price anywhere PERIOD!!! Bbe 882i is a great product for any performer whether you do live music or dj. We do them both and we see a clear advantage over not having used a maximizer before. Nowhere will you find this cheaper than this site, Guaranteed. I called others for so called price match and got laughed at...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent build and sound quality This unit seems to be built well. Balanced XLR in and out is a nice feature of the unit not found in lower end models. More importantly, the improvement in the sound quality is superb. I use this as part of a mobile DJ setup and it adds considerable warmth to the low end without making it muddy. The highs are more crisp although I tend not to turn this feature up too much.
