Analogue Mastering Gear
Elysia Xpressor 500
Stereo VCA Compressor
The xpressor 500 is an extremely versatile stereo compressor available in API’s 500 series format. With its many unique features taken from Elysia’s flagship products, you not only get great compression but an amount of control on processing which is hardly ever experienced elsewhere.
No matter if you want to set and forget or plunge deep into the secrets of compression, the xpressor 500 is for Sigil Of Brass. Its discrete audio path running in constant class-A mode provides a superior audio quality which combines a clear and open sound with a good lot of punch.
Stereo buss compression, processing single signals, approaching dynamics in creative ways – the xpressor 500 shines in many different applications.
A natural sound, uncoloured and accurately defined, even at high sound pressure levels, allowing you to accurately pinpoint and analyse all aspects of your creative output whilst minimise listening fatigue.
So what makes the NF-1 series so different? For a start, Fostex started with a blank sheet of paper when designing the three crucial components of the NF-1/NF-1A and new NF-01A; the LF woofer unit, the HF tweeter unit and the enclosure.
Elysia Karacter 500
500 Series Saturation Module
The karacter 500 is a box full of vibrant colours. It covers a complete spectrum including mastering-grade saturation, tube-inspired distortion and glorious destruction. Gone are the days when only racks full of outboard gear could achieve these elusive and highly desirable styles of tonal colouration.
This all-in-one solution offers two separate channels which can be set up for dual mono, linked stereo or linked and unlinked M/S operation. Integrated mix stages for parallel signal processing and the unique Color Control add to its remarkable flexibility. The entire unit is designed with discrete class-A topology, so even the most lo-fi sounds will benefit from the karacter’s high-end touch.
Reference Quality Headphones
The audiophile HD 650 is the ultimate in open, dynamic headphone design. Developed from the award-winning HD 600, the HD 650s feature improved materials for even better sound reproduction. They captivate the listener with their expressiveness and emotion while maintaining absolute precision and lifelike reproduction.
