DBX 1046 - Used

This used DBX 1046 is in good working condition with some signs of use. The DBX 1046 is a 4 channel compressor that features all the standard rotary knobs you would expect to alter and define your audio. The 1046 is designed to provide the audio professional with just that: 4 channels of great sounding dbx compression for a variety of applications. Incorporating the industry standard dbx designs and the latest available manufacturing techniques, the dbx 1046 provides pristine sonic quality with that classic dbx sound.

We may have multiple of this item, please chat with us to confirm pictures are up to date before purchasing as we can't guarantee you will get the unit currently pictured.

The 1046 provides 4 channels of smooth classic dbx OverEasy or Hard Knee compression that are perfectly suited for use on individual tracks of your multitrack recorder, and in virtually all applications the separate channels can be individually interfaced and used for entirely independent purposes. Additionally the newly developed PeakStopPlus is ideal for protecting your system from the oppressive peaks that can take out valuable drivers in your sound reinforcement rig or studio monitors.
