The new BAE Audio B15 multi-band equalizer, which ships this month and is priced at $1,000, is designed to deliver sonic attributes of the 312 circuit in an economically efficient and compact 500 series package.
The new B15 EQ is an all-discrete design, outfitted with three bands with five (5) selectable frequencies per band. Created to BAE Audio’s discriminating vintage specifications, the build includes Jensen transformers at the input ande output stage, Elma gold plated rotary switches, and a 15-way gold connector.
“We are very proud of our latest 500 series creation,” states BAE Audio president and founder Mark Loughman. “When people listen to the new B15, they may recognize a ‘punchy’ sound characteristic, reminiscent of the classic 312 circuit. The B15 is built with Jensen transformers, and includes other unique touches such as a fully discrete gyrator circuit. People will not only feel the difference of the B15, but hear it as well.”
The B15 is the latest in BAE Audio’s 500 series. Last month, the company announced its 1073MPL 500 series preamplifier. With the B15, the 1073MPL and its other 500 series units, BAE Audio has maintained a high manufacturing standard, with each of its units hand-wired and assembled in California.
The B15 is available now through BAE Audio’s network of authorized dealers.
