BBE 282IX Sonic Maximizer
The BBE 282IX Sonic Maximizer is a the balanced tabletop version of the patented BBE circuit thats used in BBE rack mounted 882i Sonic Maximizer processor.
The Sonic Maximizer restores natural brilliance and clarity to an audio signal by the use of two integrated functions. First, it adjusts the phase relationships between the low, mid and high frequencies through adding progressively longer delay times to lower frequencies, creating a kind of mirror curve to neutralize the effect of loudspeaker phase distortion. Second, the Sonic Maximizer augments higher and lower frequencies as loudspeakers tend to be less efficient in their extreme treble and bass ranges. The end result is a dynamic, program-driven restoration which reveals more of the natural texture and detail in the sound without causing fatigue that is often associated with exciter effects, psychoacoustic processors or excessive use of equalizers.
The Series 282i family of Sonic Maximizers offers a unique compact form factor which makes them perfect for smaller DAW workspaces, DJ systems, guitar/ bass guitar amps or desktop playback. Actually, anywhere 19 rack mount space is limited.

Nice and compact unit and does a good job, however does not perform as well as the BBE 882 I previously owned.
