Manufacturer's Description from Elysia

Its exceptional sonic characteristics, in combination with its versatile functionality, make the xfilter the perfect choice for processing individual signals, creative sound shaping, mix buss duties, and even the most demanding mastering work.
The xfilter’s dual high and low shelf bands have the unique ability to change to high and low cut filters
with resonance - a special feature borrowed from elysia’s flagship equalizer, the museq. The xfilter also
provides two mid peak filters with switchable (wide or narrow) Q factor. In addition to its four flexible
active bands, the xfilter features a unique selectable fixed LC filter for polishing the high frequency range.
This passive filter mainly consists of a capacitor and a coil per channel that produce a slight resonance
peak around 12kHz, focusing the saturation-like storage effect of the coil on the area around the peak
without excessively pushing the entire high frequency spectrum.
By linking its two channels, the xfilter eliminates the task of matching the settings for left and right. All
stepped potentiometers ensure a fast and precise recall of earlier settings. Every single dual and quad
layer pot is measured with custom computer routines, with only the perfect ones going into production
units. A special series of ultra-low tolerance film capacitors guarantee an even more precise stereo image.
The new rack version sports a high-grade linear power supply with shielded toroidal transformer, and is
housed in a super lightweight yet sturdy full aluminum chassis. Both XLR and balanced ¼” inputs and
outputs are provided, assuring total compatibility with any live or recording scenario.

About Manufacturer

The beginning was an obsession. Would it actually be possible to build special gear with these features and sound characteristics? Well, since then Elysia has become a union of creative audio enthusiasts who have a clearly defined objective: the development and production of high-quality studio equipment featuring that certain something. We do not want to settle for the status quo and rehash existing concepts time and again. Our objective is rather to adapt our products to current demands in everyday studio life. The initiators of the company founded in Nettetal (Germany) in 2005 are Ruben Tilgner and Dominik Klaen. Affected by countless live and studio experiences as well as by over ten years of pro audio experience they finally created elysia in order to make their personal sound philosophy come true. Ruben looks back on many successful development projects: besides others, he has designed the Transient Designer, the GainStation and the MixDream for SPL. Based on his experience on the marketing sector, Dominik Klaen concentrates on communication, documentation and all topics related to product design. The independence of our enterprise enables us to follow extreme paths in our work. We like to try out a lot and are only satisfied when there is nothing left to improve. Besides, we never discard unconventional ideas airily we test all of them and never form our opinion before doing so. Our most important rule is that the ear always comes first, but we also like to please the eye by reflecting the inner values of our devices on the outside with an exclusive design. This is the basis on that our audio equipment is built. We set value on highest sound quality, exclusive use of top grade components, perfect operability and reliability, appealing product design, exemplary documentation and implementation of innovative features without any Voodoo, but with real profit for daily usage.
