The dbx 266xs compressor/gate is the latest in a long line of legendary compressors from the inventors of the technology. dbx knows compressors, they invented them! If you're serious about your sound, you should not be without the DBX 266XS compressor/gate! It'll bring more professional sound to your mix.

If you're in any field of live sound or recording (bands, DJ's studios, sound installation, broadcast), you need a compressor. When you add a dbx 266xs Compressor/Gate to your mix, it gives you more dynamic control to help create a polished sound. It's what all studios and pro sound engineers use.

When compression is added to the audio chain, it gives you the ability to smooth out uneven levels, add sustain to guitars and fatten up the drums. And probably the most useful feature, is the ability to bring vocals to the front of your mix - adding greater clarity and making them stand out from the instruments.

Its patented Overeasy compression technology provides smooth and musical performance while the AutoDynamic attack and release controls, found only on dbx compressors, put great sound within easy reach. The 266xs can operate in stereo or dual-mono modes, has true RMS power summing and features quality XLR and 1/4" TRS inputs and outputs. It cuts no corners on visual feedback with gain reduction metering and easy-to-read backlit switches.

What a great offer! You get a dbx compressor/gate that improves your sound, internet pricing, and Andy's thirty-five year history of excellent customer service. Click that "buy" button now.
