    I have been looking for a 1U rackmount parametric EQ and have narrowed it down to two similar units and was wondering if anyone had a prefernece to one or the other?

    The two units are the Rane PE-17 and the Ashly PQX-571. I really dont need the extra two bands on the Ashly but thats not a big deal. I like the seperate knobs on the Rane vs. the stakced knobs on the Ashly but outside of that, Im looking for users opinions... or are they so similar that is really does not matter?

    thanks,
    chris

  3. Furman used to make a nice one, the PQ-3. I think they make a stereo version now.

    I have owned both and prefered the Ashly. Just alittle better. Maybe it's just a taste thing. They make great gear and would like to try their old bass preamps some day.

    what was it that you liked better, sound, interface, or was it just overall?
