We finished our new album this spring on a portastudio. Got the most out of it we could. Then ran it thru a BBE Sonic Maximiser. Huge improvement! The old EQ we had helped, but added so much unwanted noise that it was unacceptable. So we released the album. Bought this EQ a couple months later when we could afford it. A shot in the dark, half expecting to be disappointed. Best choice we could have made! It does the job, and the silence is AMAZING! No added noise whatsoever. Granted we record at our own, low budget studio, but our new original music recorded could only have seen any noticeable improvement if we would have went to Nashville! Do not be afraid to try this EQ! At this price point, you will be impressed. We ran the old master thru this EQ to create the new master. VERY PLEASED!

I bought this unit hoping to get some tighter eq on some guitar tracks, but there was so much signal degradation, I sent it back after one day. Each channel has a bypass switch that allows you to listen to the track with or without EQ. With this unit on, it sounded like someone threw a wet blanket over the guitar amp. It took a crisp bright guitar track and turned it into a dull lifeless replica. I don't know if I got a bad one, or what, but I wouldn't recommend based on my experience.

Art 355 EQ

Comments about ART 355 Dual Channel 31-Band EQ:

The ART 355 is a very good eq at an outstanding price. I especially like the high and low pass filters. One negative to note is the fact that due to chassis screws on the outside of the body, this EQ will not go into a SKB ATA rack. Please note I'm refering to the 4 space that I own (it hits on the inside of the handles). This unit includes all types of ins and outs (RCA, TRS 1/4" and XLR, so it will handle all needs from DJ to pro sound. I own a few of them and am well pleased. I also own a couple Rane ME60's and the ART355 performs as well at a fraction of the price.

    Great EQ!

    Comments about ART 355 Dual Channel 31-Band EQ:

    I wrote a review already, but it never posted So here goes again... I bought this for the Home Stereo, Rotel, Denon, etc...(top notch) as a replacement for an Audio Source 10band EQ. The Audio Source is a toy compared to the ART in every way. The old EQ made quite an improvement, but not on this level. It dramatically opened up the soundstage and brought a new level of detail on tracks heard many times. The music is tighter, crisper and more solid. The build quality is fantastic and the pics do not do it any justice. Musicians Friend shipped immediately and provided all shipping info the same day of purchase. great company.Thank you very much.Gene T.
    Perfect features......I am utilizing the RCA inputs/outputs for the home stereo.
    Built like a Tank!
    Best bang for the buck! This EQ is well worth the retail price+....at this price......it is a steal!

      Comments about ART 355 Dual Channel 31-Band EQ:

      I built a set of three-way mains, but my mids & highs were a bit more efficient than my woofers. This EQ gave me the ability to boost the 80-200 range and help bring out those bass-kicks the way they were meant to be heard (along with bass). Playing around in other frequency ranges, I noticed some sharp points in the speakers design, that was easily softened my lowering the specific frequencies output through the EQ. Drastically improved my front-of-house sound, with no additional noise or hiss. I will eventually buy another one for stage monitors. Great unit!

      Precision Instrument!

      By Eugene Tartt

      Comments about ART 355 Dual Channel 31-Band EQ:

      I replaced an Audio Source EQ200 10 band EQ that I have had for about 6 years. It has done well..and sounded great....I thought! I have high end equipment...a Rotel 380 wpc Amp and a Denon Pre-Amp connected using the RCA inputs/outputs I have been very pleased with the sound to say the least. I was skeptical ordering this EQ....however.....I wish I had done it a long time ago! There is ZERO comparison in build quality or sound. The ART EQ is far superior in every way. Having 1/3 octave adjustability zereos in your equipmment to say the very least. The sound stage is far superior....about 30% more open. The details and crispness are simply on another level. Overall sound is fuller, even though the Gains are set to flat. (overal loudness the same even when EQ is bypassed) I hear several new instruments / tracks in the same music that I have heard many many times. I am very, very suprised with the huge overall sound improvement. I simply did not expect this much gain. Not to knock my old Audiosource.....but it resembles, feels and sounds like a toy compared to this ART355.
      At this price....it is simply a no-brainer....and one of the best values on the Web!

      I have seen some negative reveiws....my guess is that they either did not understand the high/low frequency filters, or just got a bad unit. Every manufacturer on this planet has lemons.....just the nature of life. This Eq is not a lemon. If you need and demand superior sound...you need this EQ. God Bless...Gene T.
      All you really need for excellent sound.
      Built very solid. Pictures do zero justice!
      Worth 3x the price paid easily

      Comments about ART 355 Dual Channel 31-Band EQ:

      I have had the ART 355 for a while now and I am amazed at how good my old records sound now. You can really adjust the highs and lows and make any recording sound better. I had an old TEAC equalizer but this one leaves it in the dust. WAY more control over everything. Best investment in a long time. You won't be disappointed.

        Comments about ART 355 Dual Channel 31-Band EQ:

        This is a tremendous value to features unit. This EQ replaced a vintage Soundcraftsmen and is used exclusively to make minor adjustments to correct mixing "challenges" present in some original recordings. Applies to both vinyl and digital material. This EQ is placed directly between preamp and amp. The RCA jacks made the installation a breeze! Level adjustment and 6/12db ranges is wonderful. The only unknown is long term reliability of the slides and the unit.
