Sugar and SpiceAdds a nice sparkle to mids and highs and some perceived thump to the bass. Great SN ratio for final drive stages.
I wish the dials were select-able between free floating and 'clicked' so I could precisely set the controls the same on each channel for stereo and per venue.

Impressed!'Used it at a gig last night. Patched it after my PROFX-12. It did make a difference, punchier lows, crisper highs. I wasn't too surprised until I noticed that the built-in EQ on the Mackie mixer was set to flat!? Like they say, "Works as advertised without adding problematic gain!" 'Glad I picked this puppy up!

well worth the moneyThis piece of equipment does exactly what it says on the box.
I totally agree with the other review. I use the Presonus monitor channel and some jbl's in my home/project studio and the sound was sweet.
Punch and presence. No need for eq.
My sales engineer put one aside for me as soon as it became available and shipped it out the day it arrived.
Add one to your recording rig and feel/hear the difference.

Exactly as advertisedI'm the audio tech for a church with no budget and ancient main speakers. I purchased the Aphex exciter for my own rig & brought it in to test out; I got it patched to the Main Inserts (pre-graphicEQ), got everything dialed in, then turned off the processor for a basic A/B test... and the change was pretty dramatic. It gave the low end a lot more "bang for the buck"...which is to say I got a lot more punch without cranking the low eq on the bass or kick. The vocals were more intelligable, and the pastor's voice sounded a lot more natural & fuller. Afterwards I also noticed that my main fader was about 3dB lower than what I normally run. I'll be installing it in my touring rack post haste.
