The Maag Audio EQ4M is a 6-Band Dual Channel Mastering EQ with AIR BAND (shelf boost from 2.5 to 40kHz), a true in/out bypass, a transparent INPUT ATTN (attenuator), and stepped (detent) controls.

In 1993, Cliff Maag first introduced the AIR BAND to the audio world in the NTI EQ3. The EQ3 was a dual channel 6-band EQ powered in a 19 inch rack and to this day is hailed as one of the most musical equalizers ever made. Over two decades later, Maag Audio has captured the spirit of the EQ3 in the EQ4M by providing more power, more headroom, and more control than ever before.

More Power
The EQ4M rides on extremely clean +-18v rails without the need of any supporting chassis or power source. Just plug it in and make music.

More Headroom
More power, means more headroom. The EQ4M has an extra 2v compared to the EQ4 and boosts headroom to +29 dBu.

More Control
The EQ4M offers more control with its true in/out bypass, a transparent INPUT ATTN (attenuator), and an extra 15 kHz selection on the AIR BAND. All controls are stepped (detented).

Specifications

Frequency Response: -2 dB points, 10Hz & 75kHz
Nominal Input Impedance XLR): 48 K Ohms, balanced
Nominal Output Impedance (XLR): 50 Ohms, balanced
Headroom: +29 dBu @ 10 K Ohms, +28.5 dBu @ 600 Ohms

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreLangley, British Columbia
I waited a long time for this unit to arrive at the Port Coquitlam Long and McQuade Music Store... So as could be expected my review for this product could have been a negative one due to my experience of the shipping(waited for 1.5 months), but I know it wasn't my sales associates fault, more so from the broker and importing at the border(sat at the border for 3 weeks). Anyways, this unit was worth the wait. What an amazing piece of kit. If you are unsure about purchasing a mastering EQ with a price tag like this then I will be the first to tell you that you can be rested assure that it is a solid choice for a extremely smooth, rich, airy tone when you engage the frequencies on this unit. the price will probably double in ten years so I advise you to pick it up now while it is still priced lower than a API 5500 This unit has only been in circulation for a year so it isn't a well known mastering unit but it can make your mix and tracking sound like a dream recording, honestly. I own the SW version and it doesn't sound the same at all, it is like 10 times better. I have no quarrels about the unit being limited to just a set amount of frequency bands, the ones chosen work very well. the air band is jaw dropping when used on the right source material. it will take a flat boring mix into a world of colourful possibilities.
