553 style EQ DOA preferences
« on: April 01, 2019, 04:11:12 AM »
Hello, everyone,

Soon I will be retrofitting my TAC Scorpion's buss EQ with a 553 style EQ daughter card I've had designed for me. I was curious if there were any users of this particular EQ circuit that have used and formed opinions regarding the different DOAs that are available. I'm mostly curious if there was any one or two that stood out from the rest, or if I should just put in all gar2520's and don't worry about it. Or if there are any that did not serve the circuit well I would be interested to hear that as well.

Thanks!

Paul

I have selfmade 2520s in there. Melcor 1731 and 918s seem not to work properly in that circuit.

This is kind of what I was thinking would be the case. Thanks for confirming this for me.

Thanks!

Paul
