What We Think- LaChapell Audio 583E Review

The LaChapell Audio Model 583E is a heavyweight performer packed into a small footprint. Finally LaChapell quality can be found in a 500 series module that takes full advantage of the two-slot space requirement. Born out of the Model 583S, the Model 583E takes the 500-series potential to a whole new level by adding a fantastic new, transformerless eq. The eq section is able to operate in tandem with the preamp OR can operate independently serving either another preamps output or any other line level input. This equalizer works in such a way to simply make things sound "naturally" better - and by that I mean that it sounds less like a "crafty" or "heavy-handed" and "effecty" eq, but sounds more like there was never the need for corrective eq in the first place - that the sound started out sounding this good. This is incredibly difficult to acheive with an eq and the LaChapell 583E makes it seem effortless. The incredibly strong build quality of this unit (a trait among all LaChapell Audio pieces, I might add) makes it a particularly attractive unit that simply instills a sense of well-being and confidence when using it. The lit-tip switches of the 992EG are now transformed into a series of surprisingly strong switches that are color-changing LEDs. The ability to fill a lunchbox with three channels of LaChapell preamps AND eqs is definitely something to consider - especially since the consensus amongst nearly every pro engineer who has used LaChapell equipment is that it is without a doubt amongst the very best sounding equipment available and makes getting great sounds considerably easier.

Top notch unit May 27, 2011
Reviewer: Rob S from New York, NY  
The LaChapell 583E preamp is mostly clean and clear with incredible depth, but can be driven into a variety of distortion textures with different combinations of the input and output drive knobs.

The LaChapell 583E EQ is a mostly transparent EQ that somehow shifts the frequency spectrum of the audio without leaving the resultant audio sounding EQ'd.

LaChapell Absolute Top Shelf Gear January 21, 2011
Reviewer: jay matheson from columbia, SC United States  
I had this unit at the studio for a few weeks. It's a real winner for sure. These things are great on kick, bass ans especially acoustic instruments. I own a different LaChappel pre. The eq is musical and the pre is definitely flawless. if you are looking for big open sounds,this unit is for you. The company has a spotless reputation for service as well. Their customer service is absolutely as good as it gets.
