The AD2055 combines 100% discrete, pure class A signal amplifiers with state-of- the-art passive and active filter topologies. The AD2055's unique circuitry delivers very high resolution transient detail at the operational extremes of real world equalization demands. The AD2055 auto-bias DC servo loop control eliminates the need for all interstage capacitor coupling. The AD2055 breathes life into all musical performances!
The Avalon AD2055 Pure Class A music equalizer is the most powerful, low noise parametric equalizer available today. Designed to optimize absolute signal integrity and musical performance, the AD2055 combines the best of active and passive filter topologies with sonic excellence unequaled by lesser designs. The AD2055 is the perfect solution for two buss music-program equalization, special instrument EQ and FX applications and ultra high performance mastering studios.
Features include state-of-the-art, balanced 100% discrete, Pure Class A signal amplifiers, practical user features and rugged hardware designed to deliver true high performance audio for many years.
PASSIVE-ACTIVE FILTER DESIGN
Avalon equalizers feature the unique combination of both active and passive filter EQ designs. This special combination enables the AD2055 to deliver high speed transient detail at the operational extremes of real-world equalization demands. The passive high and low bands offer alternate musical tone range to the full function active parametric mid bands. Passive equalizers have long been a favorite with music lovers around the world. Full bodied, powerful (up to +/-32dB, 64dB range!) and sweet frequency selections are the benefits of the passive high-low EQ bands. The full bandwidth twin mid bands provide variable frequency selection (X10 frequency multipliers for very wide range), variable Q (width) and amplitude control.
MINIMUM SIGNAL PATH DESIGN
Avalon's advanced true symmetry design offers high-voltage, large headroom, extended bandwidth and very low noise. The use of 100% discrete, Pure Class A signal amplifiers give the serious music professional unlimited sonic character and a natural harmonic detail that enhances the program material and becomes one with the music itself. The Avalon AD2055 breathes life!
Wynton R. Morro founded Avalon with the desire to bring the art of music recording closer to the essence of the original performance. Avalon's pure Class A recording systems provide the world's leading engineers, producers and musicians with state-of-the-art electronics designed especially for high-fidelity music and sound recording, These carefully engineered systems enhance the creative senses and become one with the music itself.
Avalon systems utilize 100% discrete, high-bias pure Class A audio amplifiers. These pure Class A amplifiers are incorporated into minimal signal path designs which include sealed silver relays, balanced DC coupled high-current "outside-world" drivers, fully discrete linear DC regulators, low noise toroidal power transformers and selected high quality active and passive components. This powerful combination of design features gives increased musical headroom and greater dynamic transient capability for a truly transparent audio passage.
Avalon's unique design features, highest quality components and continued pursuit of sonic excellence assures the most harmonious musical signal transfer available today. Whether you are recording a solo vocalist, capturing the delicate nuance of an acoustic instrument, mastering music and film productions or recording symphonies, let Avalon take you to the leading edge in analog and experience sonic reality like never before!
