Millennia NSEQ-2 Twin Topology Stereo Parametric Equalizer

Millennia NSEQ-2 Two-Channel Equalizer

Millennia NSEQ-2 Twin Topology Stereo Parametric Equalizer Details

The Millennia NSEQ-2 Twin Topology Stereo Parametric Equalizer is a truly unique stereo parametric equalizer with unprecedented sonic purity & integrity, featuring two possible paths to equalization perfection with Millennia Media's famous Twin Topology. Select between an all-triode 300 Volt vacuum tube signal path or an all-discrete J-FET solid state signal path. Both topologies are entirely transformerless, high voltage, pure Class A. And true to Millennia's form, the NSEQ-2 is a minimalist design: only one active stage in the audio path. Choose the NSEQ-2 when you need lots of pure but very musical equalization, but also need lots of flexibility when you have to get it right, now!

A Note About the NSEQ-2's Twin Topology

Pushbutton switch which selects the corresponding channel as a complete vacuum tube EQ or a complete solid state EQ. Not a gimmick, Twin Topology is designed around two world class, musically optimized, all Class-A amplifiers "" one amplifier is based on twin triode vacuum tubes, while the other is based upon all discrete J-FET servo amplifiers. Like having two distinctly different equalizers in one chassis. When switch is depressed and LED is illuminated, the channel is operating as a discrete solid state EQ. When the switch is not depressed, the channel is operating as a high voltage vacuum tube EQ. Because of the NSEQ-2's unique shunt design, individual EQ bands will have no detectable sonic signature when they are in circuit as long as the boost/cut controls are set to zero.

Millennia NSEQ-2 Twin Topology Stereo Parametric Equalizer Options

  • Balanced Inputs
  • "?Quasi-Mastering" Detented, loggable controls
  • Musically rich vintage vacuum tubes - Call us to find out which NOS valves are currently available.

Special Note

Standard NSEQ-2 line input is unbalanced still using XLR inputs - If you need / want fully balanced inputs, you'll need to select the BALANCED INPUT OPTION when adding the NSEQ-2 to the cart.
