Elysia xfilter 500
A true stereo EQ in 500 series format. The entire audio path of the xfilter 500 consists of 100% class-A circuitry, resulting in an exceptionally open 'boutique' sound with impeccable transient projection and solid punch. These exceptional sonic characteristics, in combination with its versatile features, make the xfilter 500 the perfect tool for many different applications: processing single signals, creative sound shaping, mix buss duties, and even mastering work.
It offers high and low shelf bands, both of which can be switched into high and low cut filters with resonance - a special feature culled from elysia's flagship equalizer, the museq. The xfilter 500 also provides two mid peak filters with switchable (wide or narrow) Q factor. In addition to its four flexible active bands, the xfilter 500 features a unique switchable fixed LC filter for polishing the high frequency range. This passive filter mainly consists of a capacitor and a coil per channel that produce a slight resonance peak around 12kHz, focusing the saturation-like storage effect of the coil on the area around the peak without pushing the complete high frequency spectrum too much.
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!
