The Ashly Audio GQX-3102 is designed to be significantly
quiet without the need for noise reduction to be built into the equalizer
circuit. Double-sided circuit boards and an extensive ground plane design
are used in the filter sections to improve RFI and electrostatic immunity.
Precision Wein-Bridge filters and carefully designed summing amplifiers
combine to provide extremely accurate response, low noise, negligible
distortion, and complete immunity to magnetic fields. All filters exhibit
true constant "Q" response with no broadening near the "flat"
setting. High slew-rate circuitry throughout the signal path results in
clean, quiet, transparent sound. The faders used are a custom-manufactured
metal-shaft type, with molded saddle knobs, for the ultimate in reliability
and smooth "feel". Ashly's unique "T-Beam" front panel
construction eliminates interconnections between the faders and the filters,
resulting in a very rugged and rigid front panel.
Input and output connections of the Ashly Audio GQX-3102 include locking
XLR, 1/4" TRS and Euroblock. Ashly's servo-balanced output circuitry
maintains unity gain even if pins 2 or 3 are connected directly to ground.
The power supply is a universal switching power supply which operates
from 100-240VAC, 50/60Hz with the power switch located on the rear panel.
