RoXdon COLORIZE TX73 2-channel Carnhill Output Transformer Color Box

BRITISH HANDBUILT STUDIO EQUIPMENT

The RoXdon COLORIZE TX73 Carnhill Output Transformer Color Box is designed to be connected to the balanced line outputs of a studio mixer and provides the unique subtle coloration that the British Carnhill Transformers add to the audio and featured in classic audio equipment like the 1073 unit. For added color, the transformers can be driven harder by engaging the 18dB, output PAD switches.

Somewhat like compression, a near-saturated transformer gives a mix some glue or air, an indescribable filling in of sonic gaps for a more cohesive sound with more character and density.

A good transformer in the mix path will change the low frequency's density; a kind of compression but without the obvious sound of 'squashed' processing. The sonic change is musical and euphonic.

This classic character can be heard on countless music recordings through the years and adds that final warmth and 'panache' to recordings.

The COLORIZE is a passive audio unit featuring 2 channel (left & right) inputs & outputs via balanced XLR sockets.

The RoXdon COLORIZE also features 600 ohm termination switches.  Engaging these switches, terminates the output of the transformers with a resister to bring down the load to about 600 ohms when using the unit with high impedance inputs. The frequency response will change slightly so using these switches is a matter of choice. 
Also included is a tuned RC Zobel Network circuit to dampen high frequency transformer ringing as on the original 1073 transformers.

Bypass switches are included on the front panel which when engaged, bypass the transformers in order for A / B comparisons to be made. A status LED can be utilised by connecting the external 9v International Power Supply. The Power Supply includes UK, EU, USA & Australian adapters.
