Compressor Limiter

The dbx 160AD is a legendary dbx 160 family of compressor/limiters. The same classic sound, easy set-up and no compromise metering is now married to an improved signal path and stronger chassis design. The result is an industry standard compressor/limiter which is digital-ready and road tough.
