Comments about Dtar Equinox Parametric Equalizer Preamp:
I've used numerous acoustic preamps, and did a side-by-side comparison with this particular preamp and many other well-known models and DIs (Taylor K4, Radial Tonebone, LR Baggs Para Acoustic DI, LR Baggs Venue DI, DTAR Solstice, Radial active and passive DIs, Fishman Aura). Without even touching the EQ (all zeroed out) on this thing, it immediately sounded clearer and better than all the others. We double-checked and switched back and forth between direct signal and the Equinox, and the difference was incredible. Whatever electronics they have inside this preamp are incredible. I barely have to adjust it to get an amazing sound out of it.
If you're looking for the best live tone possible, with all the control you could ask for, this is the preamp for you. Fantastic electronics and control, solid build, and incredible tone. I found the live tone I wanted with this preamp.
