    ART HQ-231

    This EQ was everything I hoped it would be and more. I have QSC K12's for my PA at home in a pretty small space. Feedback was a huge issue for me. I have fedback detection on my dbx driverack pa but that is a little difficult to use and although it helped it was I felt taking too much of the frequency range out. The HQ-231 does exactly what it says it would do by telling you the problem frequencies and allowing you to manually adjust it. WOW!!! Tons more game and clarity like never before.And the lights are cool too.Yuk Yuk.

    Extremely Fine Precision

    I am just an amateur listener of music with an entry level audiophile setup. This was a replacement for a low end dual 14-band BSR programmable unit. I thought it worked fine over the years and really enjoyed the programmable aspect (which I still miss) but the ART is on a completely different level. There is detail coming through that I had never heard in some recordings. I find it somewhat annoying because I now feel a need to re-listen to my entire music collection, which is substantial. The detail has some to do with the increase in bands but I think it is more the accuracy and clarity of the device. The precision of each band is impressive, especially for the price. I am overjoyed with this purchase.

    I would also like to point out the service of Sweetwater. I have worked in customer service for 12 years and Sweetwater is easily the finest group I have dealt with in the last 20. The packaging was impressive and their follow-up for such a small purchase was unmatched.

    A great EQ!

    After using this, I'm not sure how or why I ever got along without it.
    I can find the resonant frequencies in the room before starting the music, and feedback problems are eliminated without discoloring the sound. Easy and powerful. Visual info is always welcome to me, and I can easily see the hottest frequency.
    The only thing I would change is the 'Low pass/Hi cut' filter, which is counter-intuitive at first glance. Turning it clockwise turns it off, while other knobs go the usual way.
