The dbx 160SL stereo compressor and limiter benefits from dbxs experience as the leader in VCA and compressor design and engineering. It combines the best features of all the great dbx compressors past and present to give you more versatile performance than ever before.
The 160SL has at its heart dual proprietary V8 VCA modules giving it an unheard-of 127dB dynamic range and ultra-low distortion. The V8 is encased in a specially-designed aluminium-zinc housing for shielding and thermal characteristics ensuring that you get superior performance in even the harshest environments. The patent-pending AutoVelocity technology makes it easy to dial up the exact attack and release effect you need via the program-dependent or non-program-dependent manual mode. And with Auto mode you can set your maximum preferred settings in manual mode and then let the 160SL do the work for you. The rugged unit has a striking blue front panel machined from 1/4″ aircraft aluminium with handcrafted solid aluminium knobs LEDs mounted individually in machined stainless steel housings and custom VU meters with peak indicators. Internally it also boasts premium components including military-grade glass epoxy circuit boards precision 0.1% and 1% metal film resistors temperature-stable polypropylene capacitors and rare earth magnet relays with gold contacts in a hermetically-sealed nitrogen environment.
