Fantastic Sound and Versatility!

I have owned the Avalon 2055 eq for a about 7 months now and this thing just continues to impress me. While it may not have as many features as its big brother that costs about $10,000 more, the amount of flexibility with this eq is just fantastic. I currently also own an older Orban mastering EQ as well as a Neve 8803 EQ While the Neve has the typical Neve sound, and the Orban has tons more features, the Avalon AD2055 is much more of a monster work horse that you can get really crazy with to fix things, or slightly sweeten them. The overall sound of this unit is musical as well as magical. There is nothing I have used this on that it did not surpass my expectations. Very well worth the asking price. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it doesn't have a variable high pass filter, or the ability to turn the independent bands on or off. But what matters most is the sound and in that regard, this unit rates 5 stars all day long!
