As the is fully adjustable, to the point where you can make it do nothing at all, if you adjust to fit the recording optimally, the worst scenario is that it doesn’t sound worse, and as I mentioned before, a tape loop or such makes it possible to actually have no extra path at all with the touch of a remote button. The whole combination lends itself to lots of fiddling for best manuaal effect.

While it is a good way to work out manuall subwoofer, it can REALLY work out your subwoofer, eating up amplifier power, and more significantly, cone excursion, limiting your total playback dynamic range, potentially increasing distortion, and possibly endangering the subwoofer driver itself. I know the peavy smoked them both in a shootout in one of the live sound magazines I was reading. The obvious conclusion was that Jewel has a crush on me, and she’s got it something bad.

It was missing punch. Barry’s only reaction was gracious and good humored about that whole mess outwardly, in his own way.

Remember, most people make decisions about what new CD to purchase based on what they hear on the car radio to or from work. I have used all three units and settled on the Aphex for my live sound rig. When it comes to reproduction, the most accurate playback systems still have enough wiggle room between them for hours of yelling between proponents. And on mixes, it adds power, presence and sparkle.

For terrestrial and satellite pahex, the Aural Exciter provides the powerful articulation necessary to deliver crisp, clear signal in the face of today’s digital broadcasting challenges. Unlike most of the manufacturers of tweaks and upgrades available in the high-end consumer market, be they components or accessories, Aphex is entirely honest about the nature of what their product does.


You can also adjust that enhancement, or tailor the effect to complement the kanual recording. Too much harmonic enhancement, and it gets brittle, harsh, and pasty.

And then came the waiter with the cold dish. Overview Tech Specs Gallery Downloads. I had no problems with the CD as is, and yet I liked it a little better through the The marketing language argues that it only puts back what was originally there in the first place, though I don’t buy that.

So, who the heck would want slower bass? Vengeance is a Dish Best Served Cold Although I had agreed to take a listen to this mystery machine during several of our always interesting for me conversations spanning many months, the arrival of such a device did not materialize, nanual I moved on.

I, of course, assumed myself simply more discriminating than their average clients, and opted to ignore him, only to realize later that he was right. Consider, though, that perhaps that perceived speed wasn’t really all that fast, objectively speaking. I was once bamboozled out of a pair of loudspeakers in trade for another pair when I auditioned the speakers for trade with just such a device.

Each of the Aural Exciter’s two independent channels feature Tune, Harmonics and Mix controls, enabling you to focus on select frequencies just like on an EQ. I had heard more 024, more sensual sounding equipment, but in the end avoided it, as long-term listening left me feeling as if I weren’t being dealt with honestly, as that magic remained constant, and such seemed to be characteristic of the gear, not the music.

Going much beyond that level became absurd, accentuated, and finally shrill, edgy, and thin. The Aural Exciter works its magic through a side chain. That manuwl then goes onto the harmonic generator that somehow or another targets transients.

Nothing wrong with that but it is like comparing Apples and Oranges.

So, if I get the song name wrong on a particular album and you catch it, chances are you probably know the right name, so give me a break and worry about something important. But, back on track, How it works.

One size, color, or shape in no way fits all. When a signal goes through, so does the noise, but the signal, being much higher in level that the noise, masks it from our hearing. His knowledge is from years of work. Add that to the fact that most systems suffer pahex very limited dynamic range, and it really makes the practical, long-term, non-fatiguing use of a dynamic expander difficult.

I found this adjustment to require the most variation for my taste. Since its introduction inclose to a million Aphex Aural Exciters have found their way into recording studios and broadcast facilities, nightclubs and concert halls, arenas and airports, musicians’ and DJs’ rigs and houses of worship.

Part of apjex is simple compression, in that a kick drum at real levels would destroy most loudspeaker setups, and even fairly good ones, if it were presented in its full dynamic range.

Without the benefit of a known maximum level, limiters, or compressors before the input of the microphone preamplifier, overdriving a microphone preamplifier is fairly common, and for those looking for a bit more tube warmth, just a little desirable.

To be fair, the lawyer didn’t lie, and showed me exactly what equipment he was using. Compression is a variable function of amplitude that applies variable thresholds and compression ratios, and if the threshold and ratios are not lined up between the compressor and expander, what comes out of the combination is not a neutral in-between. The Aural Exciter’s patented technology harmonically brings out the desired frequencies without adding gain. From a bibliographical standpoint, I’m an absolutely horrid reviewer.

What is the Aphex ? But the doesn’t just add harmonics at peaks.
