The Handcrafted Labs Thermos Equalizer is a 4-Band Parametric Equalizer inspired by the Barry Porter type EQ with a number of exclusive added design features, top class input and output transformers.
Each band has a Boost/Bypass/Attenuation switch and a multiplier switch to double the frequency selected (divider for High Band) as well as switchable Q and 9 dB of either boost or attenuation in 24 steps switch. Center section incorporates High Pass filter with adjustable frequencies and slope (six fixed frequencies and 12dB/24dB to octave curve selector) and full Mid-Side coder/decoder with M-S solo buttons. The frequency Response measured with all EQ bands ON set flat, 10Hz to 100kHz +0.2/-3dB.
The Handcrafted Labs Thermos is incredibly surgical yet very musical and transparent, you will not want to let go from your rack.
Special Note: Two recent updates to the Thermos (as of 2023), put M/S mode on a single button, and there are no longer separate outputs for the Transformer and Transformerless outs. They utilize the same outputs and you can switch between transformer and transformerless via a button on the front panel!

This mastering EQ is amazing! Mid-Side and ability to solo each each side is great! All pots are stepped and is easy for recalling. I have this, their Varis Vari-Mu mastering compressor as well as their Solution compressor. I’m’ planning on buying their entire product line up as I’m so impressed with the quality build and sound for the price point. I also love the option of coming out either with transformers or without.
