Apex PE 133 MkII Paragraphic Equaliser (part 4)

The Apex PE133MkII has an electronically balanced input with an impedance of 10kohm on each leg, overload point of +22dBu and CMRR or better than 65dB within the audio band.

Specifications

The Apex PE133MkII has an electronically balanced input with an impedance of 10kohm on each leg, overload point of +22dBu and CMRR or better than 65dB within the audio band. Pin 2 of the XLR is hot according to the internationally recognised standard.

The output is electronically balanced, simulating a transformer output in that pin 3 should be grounded when driving an unbalanced input. Maximum output is +21dBu into 600 ohms with an output impedance of 51 ohms.
