So, this is an ultra-n00b post
but I'm not sure I've seen a post or thread that summarises all the differences between the various non-AVR EQ options that are available.
From what I can tell we have:
- Behringer Feedback Destroyer (BFD)
- AntiMode 8033
- old-skool bassis
- Bossobass SEQSS
Am I missing any?
Going entirely from memory of what I think I've read (so the following may well be complete rubbish)...
- The BFD seems to have its lowest EQ filter as 20Hz, but I understand it's possible to boost/cut below that through some clever manipulaton.
- The MiniDSP offers full signal manipulation via PC interface - but IIRC it rolls off / is limited to 5Hz?
- The AntiMode can only cut frequencies rather than boost them? (I'm guessing from the name... lol)
- Old-skool Bassis are hard to find and a couple of hundred £/$ on ebay, therefore I think I would rule them out.
- Bosso's SEQSS looks to have the lowest and most powerful extension (flat to 2Hz or 3Hz?) but it applies a boost across the board rather than having the manipulation abilities of the MiniDSP?
Out of all of those I'm considering the MiniDSP and Bossobass SEQSS, so if my recollections detailed above are correct, it looks like a trade off between precise signal manipulation and higher power to lower frequencies?
(Oh, and I imagine cost as well - MiniDSP = cheap, I'm not sure the SEQSS will be... lol)
