CAPI 553F 500-series EQ
Classic Audio Products's latest offering is a slightly updated take on API 553 EQ, a lesser-known counterpart to the legendary 550. Though originally designed as a simpler, lower-cost alternative to the 550, the 553 is inductor-based and contains crucial elements of the "classic API" sound--a 2520 discrete op-amp, and the 2503-model output transformer. CAPI's DIY version contains a few updates, including HPF and LPF filters, a balanced input stage, and new, Ed Anderson-designed inductors.
