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.
