About the AudioSource EQ 200
Featuring 10 independently adjustable frequency bands, AudioSource's EQ 200 gives you super-precise sonic control with your home stereo system. Far more sophisticated and powerful than your receiver's bass and treble controls, this graphic equalizer lets you fine-tune audio signals to suit your personal musical taste. This handy EQ also features a 10-band multicolor spectrum analyzer display. It doesn't just look cool seeing the music's frequency content can also help you make the right sound adjustments.
The EQ 200 is compatible with receivers that have a tape monitor loop (or pre-out/main-in loop), or with separate preamp/amplifier components. An array of input and output jacks lets you connect up to 2 recording decks (tape, CD, MD, etc.), for making custom-equalized dubs it's especially helpful for cleaning up the sound when you dub from older recordings.

More details on the AudioSource EQ 200
Features Overview: This graphic equalizer is a tool to obtain detailed control over the sound of your speakers, far more than standard tone controls. You can enhance older recordings and alter instrumental and vocal balance to suit your individual tastes. This unit has 20 bands of frequency adjustments (10 for each channel) ranging from 30Hz-16kHz and a level control for both left and right channels. Comparison between "equalized" and "unequalized" sounds can be made with the EQ/Bypass button.
EQ Sliders: There are 10 sliders per channel, each giving 12dB of boost or cut. Each slider is positioned one octave apart from another to correspond with the entire range of human hearing. A light illuminates in red on each slider unless the unit is in "Bypass" mode. The 10 sliders represent the following frequencies: 30Hz, 60Hz, 120Hz, 250Hz, 500Hz, 1kHz, 2kHz, 4kHz, 8kHz and 16kHz.
Power: Activates power to the equalizer. The LED glows green when power is on and red when the unit is off.
Tape 1-2/Tape 2-1: When this button is engaged, it allows you to make a tape copy or dub between two cassette decks. The "In" position dubs from Tape 1 to Tape 2 and the LED illuminates in green. The "Out" position allows dubbing from Tape 2 to Tape 1 and the LED will illuminate in red. Note: When the "Line/Tape" switch is out (the tape position), the "Tape 1-2/Tape 2-1" switch allows you to select which tape deck you want to listen to.
Audio/Video: This button selects between the two input audio sources. When the button is pressed in, the LED illuminates in green and the Audio input is selected. When the button is in the out position, the LED illuminates in red and the Video input source is selected. Note: There are no video connections on this unit. The inputs/outputs are for audio only.
EQ/Bypass: Comparisons between "Equalized and Unequalized" sounds can be made with this button. The LED illuminates in green when pressed in and the sound can be heard with your chosen equalization curve. When the button is out, the equalization curve is disengaged and the LED illuminates in red. Note: When bypassing the equalization curve, the LEDs on the sliders do not illuminate.
EQ Rec: Allows you to make a tape copy with the equalization curve that you have set. The LED illuminates in green when pressed.
Line/Tape: When pressed in, the "Line Input" is chosen and the LED illuminates in green. When the button is out, the "Tape Input" is selected and the LED illuminates in red.
Level Controls: This button controls the level, or volume of each channel.
Spectrum Analyzer Display: The spectrum analyzer provides a visual display of the relative signal levels in each of the EQ sliders. There are ten columns of LEDs that correspond to the 10 EQ sliders.
Unswitched Outlet: There is an unswitched outlet (200 watts max) on the back right of the unit.
