API 5500 Dual Equalizer Debuts at AES

FOH Staff • News • September 13, 2006

JESSUP, MD–API Audio will debut the latest in the company's 19-inch rack mounted products–the 5500 dual equalizer–at the 2006 AES in San Francisco. Designed for recording, mixing and mastering applications, the single rack space API 5500 is a two-channel EQ package with an all-discrete signal path that combines the classic features of the API 550B four-band EQ module with the boost and cut precision of the 550D and the 550M mastering equalizer. Each channel of the API 5500 features four independent bands of equalization – Lo, Lo-mid, Hi-mid and Hi – covering a frequency range from 30Hz to 20kHz. The four EQ bands on each channel operate in conjunction with a range control that offers three choices of boost and cut: the standard API +/-2dB, +/-1dB, and a .+/-0.5dB setting.

The self-powered unit is built to API's exacting quality standards and includes the usual five-year warranty.

API will be showing the 5500 for the first time at the AES Convention (Booth #918) with units to ship November 1, 2006.
