Has anyone checked out the Speck ASC 4 Band EQ ?

It looks like a good "bang for the buck," but how does it sound?

I am surprised you dont know about it. I used to own one but needed to turn it to pay for repairs to my console. The unit is the BEST bang for the buck EQ-wise. I dont believe there is a better one out there. It is a very useable/transparent sounding EQ. It's like the RNC of EQ's. It's not like an API or a Neve (I thought it was more SSL like) but it's just as useable. The dbx 905 Eq is a cool cheapie EQ as well but not as transparent as the Speck. Definitely a cool box for a budget (or not so budget) room.

Thanks duskb. I've decided to pick up a pair for my keyboard rack. I'll probably get an FMR Really Nice Compressor as well for that same rack.

I see there are transformer option on there units.
Which ones are the "sweet" ones?
With or without tranformers.

I am betting that the X-former is the good one.

My suggestion would be to get the one WITH the Trannie because if you run the unit through the 1/4" input you can actually see how it sounds without it. He intentionally wired it this way. So in a sense the box has BOTH trannie and non trannie options.

Exactly. I have usually found that I prefer the 'transformer' output, but generally try both (depends how fast we're working), occassionally, the 'balanced non-transformer' output comes in exceptionally handy.

Best of luck.
