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.

Product Description

    Features
  • OverEasy or classic hard knee compression with dbx's program dependent attack and release times
  • Compression ratio variable from 1:1 through infinity :1 to negative compression
  • Precision dual RMS LED display monitors input or output and gain reduction over a wide range
  • Over 60dB of gain reduction available
  • Exclusive Infinity+ compression allows negative compression
  • Independent balanced and unbalanced outputs can drive 600 loads to +24dBm simultaneously
  • New floating balanced output stage drives any load
  • Optional output transformer capable
