100% Discrete Class-A
As a true elysia specialty, the museq is completely based on discrete circuitry and does not use any integrated circuits at all.
Active Bandpasses with FETs
The filter stages are completely active and benefit from a puristic design approach without coupling capacitors – the basis for a truly musical EQ.
Resonance High & Low Pass Filters
The outer shelving filters can be switched into high and low pass filters which feature an additional resonance peak as a very useful specialty.
Parallel Filter Design
A special circuit trick makes it possible to leave the high and middle frequencies completely untouched when using the high and low pass filters.
The museq offers a second, switchable sound flavor by altering its frequency spectrum, harmonics and transient response.
Pure Transparency Path
The puristic design of the filter stages with current feedback amplifier stages and without any coupling capacitors results in an outstanding sound quality.
The boost/cut switch generates twice the number of values to be set with the 23 step potentiometers than the usual -/0/+ arrangement would offer.
Switchable Filter Quality
The filter quality can be switched from a wide to a narrow Q factor which remains independent from the setting of the gain controller.
Stepped & Matched Potentiometers
All potentiometers on the museq have 23 steps and are matched to build stereo pairs by a software routine that has been written just for this purpose.
