great unit

By Leonard Ochs

from LI NY

Comments about dbx 160A Compressor/Limiter:

did exactly what we wanted it to do and was a great purchase.
controls the unwanted bass pops and highs very well. Keeps the signal uniform without losing any sound quality. Have it coming out of an LA-610 directly into the board. really sounds great.
compact unit that does what you want it to do.
fairly priced for what it does.

Comments about dbx 160A Compressor/Limiter:

I've used a variety of different compressors. This one by far exceeds them all, even my modded CS-3.Great compression without even being able to tell it's doing it's job. That's what I look for in a quality Compressor.

Totally Invisable

Comments about dbx 160A Compressor/Limiter:

I've been using the 160A for six years, it is by far the most impressive compressor I've ever used, or seen in use. It's totally invisable, but works perfectly. Whether it be a single voice or an entire band, I have never had one problem with this compressor in any way.
