BBE 282iX Desktop Sonic Maximizer with Balanced 3-Pin XLR Connections

282iX Desktop Sonic Maximizer with Balanced 3-Pin XLR Connections. "The BBE 282i Sonic Maximizer is a two-channel signal processor that will benefit any recording or sound reproduction system. Whether you purchased the Sonic Maximizer for your home studio, PA, DJ system, or instrument rack, you will find the Sonic Maximizer' rugged construction and careful electronic design a welcome addition to your sonic arsenal.

The 282iX features XLR balanced input and outputs, and +23dB of output headroom. Perfect for studio, or professional live sound applications. Its smaller chassis makes it ideal for DJ systems, DAW-based recording environments, and space-challenged live systems, as well as desktop applications, where space is at a premium and there,, s no 19-rack space available. However, the 282 Series delivers exactly the same performance as BBE's world-renowned rack-mounted Sonic Maximizer products. BBE High Definition Sound compensates for phase and amplitude distortion, restoring the brilliance and clarity of the original content material.

The BBE High Definition Sound process begins by applying a linear phase shift across the full-frequency range of the signal, which allows the speaker system to reproduce the transients and harmonics in the correct order. The BBE process then compensates for speaker amplitude distortion by progressively boosting lower and higher frequencies, and doing so within the context of the phase correction process. This efficiently creates a fuller, richer sound without excess equalization."

The Series 282i family of Sonic Maximizers offers a unique compact form factor which makes them perfect for smaller DAW workspaces, DJ systems, guitar/ bass guitar amps, or desktop playback. Actually, anywhere 19” rack mount space is limited.

The all-analog 282i incorporates the same great, patented BBE circuit that’s used in our rack-mounted 882i Sonic Maximizer processor.

The 282i Series is available in three I/O formats:

  • 282iX - Balanced XLR
  • 282iQ - Unbalanced 1/4"
  • 282iR – Unbalanced RCA and 3.5mm mini

These three versions allow you to choose the 282i that’s best suited to your particular sonic requirements.

Now there’s no excuse not to upgrade your sound with BBE!
