The SPL PQ Mastering EQ is a two channel fully parametric mastering grade EQ, that offers precision, flexibility, and detailed musicality.

The SPL PQ Mastering Equalizer is a new revised edition of the well-known SPL PQ Mastering Equalizer – Model 2050. Both units are based on our 120V Rail Technology. The new PQ features the same high-quality characteristics as the previous model. All five bands can each be activated or deactivated and you got the possibility (for every single band) to separately switch between Constant Q and Proportional Q. This kind of circuit has not yet been achieved in any other equalizer. Each channel can completely be activated or deactivated, thanks to Auto-Bypass, even automated in a freely selectable time frame. Bypass of each band and constant Q of the left side can be controlled by the right side in Link mode.

Thanks to the 1/4 Gain-Switch, you can reduce a maximum increase or attenuation of the amplitude by the factor 3/4, which regulates the potentiometer from max +/-20dB to +/-5dB cut. This gives you the possibility to perform small corrections, as common in Mastering or higher amplitudes in Proportional-Q mode. Thanks to the detented potentiometers, a precise recall is very easy to realize. You can also adjust parameters Gain, Frequency and Q in 41 steps with the detented potentiometers.

What We Think

The SPL PQ Mastering EQ is an impressive unit for sure. Each band has a range of overlapping frequencies, fully adjustable Q, and can boost or cut much more significantly than is common in mastering EQs. Further, each of the five bands can be individually activated or turned off, and the unit can run in dual mono or linked stereo modes. So what you get is a lot of flexibility and precision. You can get focused and surgical, or you can get subtle and broad brushed with fine adjustments. All of this is coupled with a pristine musical tone that has integrity, but is not lifeless. Another truly impressive piece from SPL.
