WARNING

TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC

SHOCK, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS

EQUIPMENT TO RAIN OR MOISTURE!

Magnetic Field

CAUTION: Do not locate sensitive high-gain equipment such as preamplifiers or tape decks directly above or below this unit. Because this amplifier has a high power density, it has a strong magnetic field which can induce hum into unshielded devices that are located nearby.

This field is strongest just above and below the unit. If an equipment rack is used, we recommend locating the amplifier(s) at the bottom of the rack and the preamplifier or other sensitive equipment at the top.

The lightning bolt triangle is used alert the user to the risk of electric shock

The exclamation point triangle is used to alert the user to important operating and/or maintenance instructions.

Precautions

Please consider the following whilst using the Resonator:

1. The Resonator will accommodate both -10dB and +4dB operating levels without the need for level

switching.

2. The XLRs are set for +4dBu the TRS jacks for -10dBV operating levels. Use the appropriate

connector/level to interface between your equipment and the Resonator.

3. Using the TRS jack input with +4dB signal levels in some set-ups may over drive the Resonator and

cause distortion.

4. Input signals in excess of +20dB may cause the Resonator to distort.

5. Do not operate the unit from AC mains in excess of 10% variation above or below the selected line

voltage, and only at the specified line frequency.

Operation

CHANNEL 1

LF gain control

This control sets the amount of cut or boost for the LF (Low Frequency) section. The gain range in +15db and -15dB.

LF Q control

Varies the 'Q' (bandwidth) of the cut or boost region. A low Q, CW (clock wise) affects a wide band of frequencies whilst a high Q, CCW affects a very small band.

LF Frequency control

This control selects the centre frequency for LF cut or boost. The LF frequency control has a 40:1 range and is adjustable from 20Hz to 1kHz.

MF gain control

Sets the amount of cut or boost for the MF (Mid Frequency) section.

MF Q control

Varies the 'Q' of the cut or boost region for the MF section.

MF Frequency control

This control selects the centre frequency for MF cut or boost and is adjustable from

200Hz to 8kHz

HF gain control

Sets the amount of cut or boost for the HF (High Frequency) section.

HF Frequency control

This control selects the centre frequency for HF cut or boost and is adjustable from

500Hz to 20kHz.

HF Q control

Varies the 'Q' of the cut or boost region for the HF section.

CLIP LED

The Clip LED monitors the last stage of the EQ output stage. The LED lights 3dB before clipping.

Bypass switch

Pressing BYPASS switches the EQ out of the signal path and allows A/B comparison.

Remember if you are using any amount of boost, bypassing the EQ will cause a noticeable drop in signal level.

In MONO mode Channel 2 BYPASS is inoperative and Channel 1 BYPASS now switches the whole EQ in and out of circuit.

Operation

CHANNEL 1 continued

30Hz Hi Pass switch

Pressing this switch inserts a 30Hz, 12dB/Octave slope high pass filter into the signal path before the EQ section. Primarily intended to remove subsonic frequencies such as stage noise and turntable rumble.

MONO LED

Pressing the MODE switch on the rear of the Resonator lights the MONO led. This puts the two EQ channels in series to form a single mono 6 band unit. In this mode the

BYPASS and 30Hz filter switches on Channel 2 are disabled. Channel 1 BYPASS and

30 Hz Hi Pass filter now controls the whole unit.

Your input signal should now go to Channel 1's input and the output taken from

Channel 2's output. Channel 2's input is disabled.

CHANNEL 2

Channel 2's operation is identical to channel one, except the input, BYPASS and 30 Hz hi pass filter when used in mono mode
