I’m not a peavy fan, but this thing kicks ass! I manuak possibly then defend myself and counter by pointing out that others have preferred the same, but without the honesty, but what’s the point? Like many things, I’ve got a theory for that.

If any of you have the opportunity to try this out for yourself, maybe we can do a chat session on the topic.

The improvment in Vocal clarity is stunning and the Kick Drum persistence is just what I need. There is a catch though. His explanations are simple and to the point, without weighing the conversation down with a boat load of technical information. The Big Bottom also has three: So, where are we?

I don’t know if the audio output of my CD player was just higher than usual, but I tended to keep the drive control on the low side, meaning shorter than recommended sustain, or quicker punch vs. The guy selling the drivers said that there wasn’t anything technically wrong with the idea, but that I might not like the results, as it might sound a bit thin by comparison to the more common, higher Q alignments.

Conclusions Despite having worked myself into a rather upset state with the precariousness of a product that has the potential to render a listener dependent on a constant fix of one more box, in my incredulousness at standards of the music recoding industry in general, I can only demonstrate my opinion that the processes offered by the Aphex are of undeniable benefit to the recreational listener.


I didn’t really like the higher harmonics settings for much of anything. He offered to hook me up with somebody in the company, set up a review sample, yadda, yadda.

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. 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 love the BBE. Please explain the problem you are having. A 6 dB boost means that any peaks centered at the boost mnual will be four times higher in peak output. Apjex I’m just a speed junkie.

I suspect they say this 2204 we’re more familiar with human voice, and therefore we are less tolerant to coloration, however enticing it may sound. Unfortunately, that particular article has also been abused in popular high-end rags to advance an esoteric agenda more than a couple times.

I use 31 band EQ to level and voice the system then fire manjal the Aphex apnex add that extra manul bit of clarity. Great for generating earth shaking Sub Bass but if your amp and speaker setup is not up to scratch then things get fried. While it is good for showing what really low frequency content feels like, it wasn’t my personal cup of tea for listening pleasure. Posted Sun 15 Dec 13 3: The result was that it widened the sound, made it sound more dimensional.

Each of manuwl Aural Exciter’s two independent channels feature Tune, Harmonics and Mix controls, enabling you to focus on select frequencies just like on an EQ. After all, anyone with a history of shopping for audio components based on quick and impulsive listening experiences can testify that swapping equipment for the best sound with a shifting music library can easily turn into a never-ending process.

Instead of extending frequency response by boosting the lowest frequencies, they essentially look at your lowest frequencies and generate frequencies at half of that.


As I’ve auditioned many piece of gear in an obsessive quest for audio inner peace, I have gravitated toward what I felt were more neutral, more reliable components, but the side effect is that because most recordings lack anything of drama, the presentation follows. 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 Aural Exciter is a prized part of any nightclub or live DJ’s amp rack. In a way it’s reminiscent of an EQ set to a Fletcher Munson kind of smile curve, except that it didn’t get fatiguing or take away from midrange detail or sink the sound stage back.

They’re really great for getting extra low-frequency energy into a system capable of dealing with it, and superb for doing crunch tests and trying to instill a sense of awe in your friends. Multiple times we arrive upon a particular elixir, and the music sounds like music.

This was just plain lovely. However, remember that this is only the added effect. I was backlogged with relatively paying jobs.

Until I get all of my CDs on hard disc, I’ve got them loaded in a changer. Since the is meant to do identical processing with stereo content, the phase shifting would conceivably only affect the degree of depth, and from what I can tell, it’s a relatively subtle effect compared to the more drastic implementations that use all out reverb, subtle or not. So what does the actually do if it’s not black magic?
