    Since its introduction in the mid 1970's, the dbx 160 series has been the world's most popular line of audio compressors. After the classic 160 (which is still used daily in many world class studios), came the 165, the 160X and the 160XT. The 160X/XT were the models that truly became the industry standard. Solid construction, fool proof operation, great sound, at-a-glance metering and a bulletproof output stage all contributed to its popularity with musicians, recording studios, consultants and installers, and broadcast media production people alike.

    The dbx® 160A is a legendary dbx® 160 family of compressor/limiters. The same classic sound, easy set-up and no compromise metering is now married to an improved signal path and stronger chassis design. The result is industry standard compressor/limiter which is digital-ready and road tough.

    Features

    • OverEasy® or classic hard knee compression with dbx's® ultra-musical program dependent attack and release times
    • Compression ratio variable from 1:1 through infinity :1 to negative compression
    • Precision dual RMS LED display monitors input or output and gain reduction over a wide range and calibrates for different operating levels
    • Over 60dB of gain reduction available
    • Exclusive Infinity+ compression allows negative compression
    • Independent balanced and unbalanced outputs can drive 600 loads to +24dBm simultaneously. New floating balanced output stage drives any load
    • Optional output transformer capable
    • Strappable with another 160A for true RMS stereo summing operation
