DESTINY EQ 7043

The GECKO® DESTINY EQ 7043 graphic equalizer is a very useful audio signal processing tool in situation where precise frequency control is required across the audible frequency spectrum

(i.e. music masterings).

The GECKO® DESTINY EQ 7043 graphic equalizer can be used in tuning any acoustical environment (i.e. home theater rooms, recording and mastering studios, concert halls), to stop ringing, increase clarity, and flatten the overall frequency response of the environment.

Power Management

GECKO ® GALILEE Series power sequencers provide the sequencing parameters, conditioning, shutdown thresholds, EMI/RFI filtering, and surge protection needed to safeguard audio, video, broadcast, and computer equipment.

Section 1

GALILEE PSC 8220

The GECKO® GALILEE PSC 8220 power sequencer provides precise power sequencing up to eight rear universal AC outlets.

Each output is sequence-delayed by a fixed timing of 1 second.

This allows you to control the power up and down sequence of your system precisely; to minimize turn-on transients and the possible damage to your high-value equipments.

The GECKO® GALILEE PSC 8220 power sequencer is a fullfeatured power conditioner with advanced power filtering, fast acting breaker, EMI and RFI filtering, as well as surge and spike protection.

It is specifically designed to sequence and protect a wide range of equipment; from ultra sensitive tube preamps to robust-powered speakers, from compact digital system needs to the range of multiple large displays requirement. Your equipments are guaranteed to perform better, sound richer and last longer.

DI Solutions

A transparent object lets light pass through without altering it in any way. Similarly, we design our

DIs to be acoustically transparent. With our AY-

ERS ROCK Series DIs, your sound is enhanced as accurately and cleanly as possible, full and free of feedback, coloration, noise, and most importantly maintenance.

Section 1

AYERS DI 100P

The GECKO® AYERS ROCK DI 100P and DI 200P are world’s first passive audiophile grade direct injection boxes. The GECKO®

AYERS ROCK DIs employ Jensen® isolation transformers coupled with GECKO® C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® Audiophile PreAmps technology for optimum audio performance; offering spectrum linearity, headroom enhancement, and extraordinary level handling without introducing distortion.

Being completely passive, the GECKO® AYERS ROCK DIs do not require any form of powering (i.e. AC/DC, batteries, +48V phantom) and have the unique advantage of eliminating 60-cycle ground loops. These make the GECKO® AYERS ROCK DIs definite favourites with informed audio engineers and musicians.

The GECKO® AYERS ROCK DIs are great for guitars, basses, and keyboards and are particularly adept with high-output, broadband instruments such as active instruments and digital keyboards.

In brief, the single channel GECKO® AYERS ROCK DI 100P and the dual channel GECKO® AYERS ROCK DI 200P are:

* designed for audiophile, studio, and live applications;

* absolutely zero-phase distortion;

* robust and maintenance free.
