The xfilter 500 is a true linked stereo EQ in the 500 series format. It gives you the expensive sound of an all class-A equalizer in a surprisingly affordable package, with a precise stereo image based on computer-selected, stepped potentiometers and low tolerance film capacitors.
"The xfilter 500 has done what I've asked of it on every occasion – make what I run through it sound better. Whether I'm looking for sheen, warmth, bottom, midrange, sparkle... the xfilter has performed dutifully and happily. The Passive Massage really is a treat."
"The xfilter 500 is a fantastic and versatile tool that we would happily give a place to on our stereo mix buss. However, it isn’t limited to this role and performed fantastically on just every sound we put through it. At this price, the xfilter is almost a must have tool for your mix buss."
The xfilter 500 is absolutely serious about flexibility. It offers high and low shelf bands which can be switched into high and low cut filters with resonance, two mid peak filters with wide and narrow Q, plus additional passive LC stages with shielded coils for a glorious top end.
"There is certainly a need for this new tool, and with the ability to find the best in any piece of audio and exploit it, it’s hard to imagine any future competition outdoing what elysia has already done here. A whole rack of these would be a welcome addition to any studio."
"The xfilter 500 will behave like a smooth professional and you can trust it to enhance without degrading, and yet it offers a world of radical reshaping that makes it a highly creative tool. I’m having a problem thinking of a reason not to buy one."
