TC Electronic DB MAX - Used

This used TC Electronic DB Max is in working condition and has very little visible usage on its exterior. The DB Max is a professional Level Maximizer and Audio Enhancement processor designed for use in digital transmission, linking, webcast and radio STL applications. Featuring high resolution and high sample rate processing prevents unwanted distortion and listening fatigue from being generated, artefacts often associated with comparable processors.

We may have multiple of this unit and conditions of units may vary, before purchase please confirm the unit pictured is the unit for sale. Updated picture can be provided. If you don't chat with us prior to purchase we can not guarantee you will receive the unit pictured.

The 5-band section in DBMax can be combined with Automatic Gain Control, Dynamic and Static Stereo Enhancement, Dynamic and Static Eq and other tools for maximising audio impact and creating a signature sound. Balanced and unbalanced AES/EBU I/O is standard, and outputs are always active. Sample rate conversion can be invoked when using digital inputs. Analog I/O is standard and outputs are always active. The 24 bit converters are scaled in the analog domain, with scaling under preset control, to minimise noise and maximize headroom under all operating conditions. DBMax can be remotely controlled using GPI or RS485 serial inputs. IEC not included

Features

  • Maximum efficiency: 5-band compression
