BBE announces 500-series Sonic Maximizer

BBE’s Sonic Maximizer technology is now available in a 500-series type module.

The single-channel SM500 is engineered to brighten, clarify, and add fullness by adjusting phase relationships and augmenting high and low frequencies, revealing more of the sound’s natural texture and detail.

Sonic Maximizers have featured on recordings by Ryan Hewitt (Avett Brothers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Flogging Molly) to Ed Cherney (Rolling Stones, Bonnie Raitt) to Tony Visconti (T. Rex, David Bowie, Alejandro Escovedo).

Some of the features of the SM500 include: Same processing engine as the award-winning BBE 882i rack mount model; bypass switch for comparison of processed to unprocessed signals; +23dBu headroom; and compatibility with 500-type racks.
