APHEX DOMINATOR II 720 (YOM: ?) (S#: ?) GOOD (7-8)
[PRICED PER UNIT - 2 AVAILABLE AT TIME OF LISTING]



DESCRIPTION: APHEX DOMINATOR II 720 (YOM: ?) (S#: ?) GOOD (7-8)

FEATURES: THE APHEX SYSTEMS MODEL 720 DOMINATOR II IS A STEREO MULTIBAND PEAK LIMITER DESIGNED TO FIT A WIDE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS. THROUGH THE USE OF MULTIBAND TECHNIQUES ALONG WITH NEW PROPRIETARY CIRCUITS, THE AUDIBILITY OF LIMITING ACTION HAS BEEN GREATLY REDUCED, ESPECIALLY WHEN COMPARED TO CONVENTIONAL LIMITERS. THIS MEANS THAT GREATER LIMITING DEPTH IS POSSIBLE, RESULTING IN HIGHER LOUDNESS WITH MAINTAINED AUDIO QUALITY. AT VIRTUALLY ANY LIMITING DEPTH, THE DOMINATOR II IS FREE OF "HOLE PUNCHING", "DULLNESS", AND MOST OTHER EFFECTS NORMALLY ASSOCIATED WITH LIMITERS. AS A PEAK OVERSHOOT PROTECTION LIMITER, THE DOMINATOR II IS UNDETECTABLE IN LINE WHILE IT ABSOLUTELY PREVENTS PEAK LEVELS FROM EXCEEDING A USER SETTABLE OUTPUT LEVEL. IN ADDITION, THE DESIRED LIMITING EFFECTS OF GREATER AUDIO DENSITY AND INCREASED "PUNCH ARE READILY AVAILABLE WITH THE DOMINATOR II.

EXTRAS: COMES WITH POWER SUPPLY.

MODIFICATIONS: # PEAK CEILING TRIMMABLE IN 0.2DB STEPS OVER A 34DB RANGE
# 3 BANDS OF LIMITING WITH SWITCHABLE CROSSOVER FREQUENCIES
# PATENTED AUTOMATIC LIMIT THRESHOLD (ALT) CIRCUITRY
# FREEDOM FROM PUMPING
# FREEDOM FROM SPECTRAL GAIN INTERMODULATION
# ADJUSTABLE DENSITY (RELATIVE CREST HEIGHT)
# CALIBRATED DETENTED POTENTIOMETERS
# 104DB DYNAMIC RANGE
# LF AND HF EQ PROVIDES SHAPING EQUALIZATION BELOW PEAK CEILING
# RELAY BYPASS, REMOTE CONTROLLABLE
# SERVO-BALANCED TRANSFORMERLESS INPUTS AND OUTPUTS

HISTORY: TOURED WITH BEN HARPER AND KEPT IN GREAT WORKING CONDITION.

* OPTICAL RECORDING AND TRANSFER -- PREVENTS "VALVE CLASH", GIVES HIGHER AVERAGE LEVEL WITH LOW DISTORTION AND BETTER SIGNAL-TO-NOISE PERFORMANCE.
* ANALOG DISK MASTERING -- PEAK CONTROL FOR HIGH ALLOWABLE AVERAGE CUTTING LEVELS; LESS LIMITER DEGRADATION TO THE PROGRAM; BRIGHTER, PUNCHIER SOUND.
* C/D MASTERING -- PEAK AND DENSITY CONTROL FOR MORE ACCURATE DIGITIZING, CLEANER SOUND REQUIRING LESS ERROR CORRECTION ON PLAYBACK; NO LIMITER INDUCED SOUND DEGRADATION. STL & PHONE LINE DRIVER -- MAXIMIZE SIGNAL-TO-NOISE WITHOUT OVERLOAD DISTORTION.
