Anyone tried to hook up a dbx 3bx DS into their system? This and my Denon turntable are the only electronics I saved from my old audio system. The 3bx DS was just so great. I'd appreciate any help with setting it up, if possible.

A component many aspired to own once; me included smile.gif 3 separate bands to limit the pumping . Ime guessing this was used primarily for dynamic range expansion bo ? To try it out for some of the compressed music today [ mp3 etc and cd's ] an avr with a tape monitor loop as described in the manual here would be the go ;

For any other audio like dvd-a or sacd or bluray with lossless tracks I wouldnt use it as your speakers tweeters may not be safe eek.gif [ note the caution in the pdf ] These devices were also popular because analog cassette recording had dynamic range and noise limitations so a lower signal level could be put on the tiny 1/4'' and help the dolby nr with tape hiss ; with digital recording now this isnt required and certain avrs have ways to help mp3 and other compressed codecs ...

Easy to set up with a few rca's but dial in a low % if you try it wink.gif
