I think the Metroplex sounds fantastic. What type of master does it have?

Thanks!

Typical 1Meg master using a PEC pot and small compensation circuit. I ran frequency sweeps at many level settings and then worked up a small network to compensate at lower levels.
It was a long process to wind up at an eloquent solution.

It really sounds great wish Sweden wasn´t so far away. I was thinking about trying to get a Friedman BE100 but somehow i think it sounds very modern, very gainy. This is very Marshally. I´m no tech wiz what is a PEC pot? I guess it´s not like a dual pot that you use in a PPIMV.
Thanks!

PEC is the initials for the Canadian manufacturer Precision Electronics Corporation

Very high quality, built to military standards.
