Great River Electronics has released the companion equalizer to the Mercenary Edition series of products - the EQ-2 NV.
The EQ-2NV equalizer is loosely based on the topology of vintage 1081/1083 models. The newly-designed class A, discrete single-ended amplifiers in the EQ-2NV bring the musicality and control of the 108x greater clarity and dynamic range.
The line input is a transformer coupled bridging type, with sensitivity options ranging from elevated line level (+8dbm) down to keyboard and semi-pro levels (-20dbm). This will permit the unit to be employed with both professional level equipment, and in 'semi-professional' applications. The input gain flexibility can also be employed to gain a new texture to the tones produced, with an added aggression should the user so desire.
The equalizer is specifically designed to work with Great River's NV series microphone amplifiers' patch loop, for significantly greater headroom at one end, a lower overall noise floor, and overall greater musicality. When connected via the MP-2NV's patchpoint, the mic and DI inputs are fully functional, as well as the level control, metering and "big iron" of the MP-2NV's output amplifier. The equalizer also has a discrete class A balanced output stage, which allows it to function as a complete stand-alone device. It is available in single or dual channel models.
