The xfilter 500 is a true linked stereo EQ in the 500 series format. It gives you the expensive sound of an all class-A equalizer in a surprisingly affordable package, with a precise stereo image based on computer-selected, stepped potentiometers and low tolerance film capacitors.

This EQ is serious about flexibility. It offers high and low shelf bands which can be switched into high and low cut filters with resonance, two mid peak filters with wide and narrow Q, plus additional passive LC stages with shielded coils for a glorious top end. With its exceptionally open sound, straight transient projection and solid punch, the xfilter is the perfect match for your xpressor - or any other piece of delicious outboard gear.

Expensive boutique sound made affordable.

• True Stereo Operation
Two channels, just one set of controllers.

• Resonance High & Low Pass Filters

Comments about Elysia xfilter 500 Class A Discrete Stereo Parametric EQ:

I am a pro composer in the video game world, in order to support my habit of making my own music. I recently discovered 500 series gear & bought the Elysia XFilter EQ and a Serpent SB4001 Compressor. Both are total game-changers, but specifically the XFilter has allowed me to really bring out every detail in my mixes, and breathe new life where digital plugins just can't go. I would have not believed that plugins couldn't do the same thing to an audio signal, but when you listen to pure analog circuitry, you will be sold. I researched forever debating between a "colored" EQ (Pultec, etc.) and the XFilter & this unit was simply the best bang for the buck. Well made, beautiful and sounds like pure gold. Love it!
