We are very pleased to announced that our 500-Series 551 Inductor EQ has been awarded top honors as MusicTech’s Gear of the Year 2016 "Best Hardware Effect/Outboard". MusicTech’s Mike Hillier had this to say:
“The colouration from the 551 is subtle, but there is definitely something in the sheen of this module that gives us the polish we were looking for…There are plenty of great-sounding digital EQs, but sometimes, being able to grab something physical and dial in a sound quickly is worth its weight in gold. The 551 is one of the best-sounding EQs we’ve ever heard…We love this EQ – it truly is one of Rupert Neve’s best designs.”
Many thanks to MusicTech for the kind words, and for this great honor!
