The dbx 286s microphone processor is a direct replacement for the renowned dbx 286A, offering the same exceptional sound quality, rugged reliability and great value, but updated with a new sleek, silver face plate and the latest electronic components for even better performance.

The 286s is a full-featured Channel Strip Processor that delivers a studio quality microphone/instrument preamplifier and four processors that can be used independently or in any combination.

The sonically pristine dbx 286s Mic Preamp has all the features you need, including wide-ranging input gain control, switchable +48V phantom power, and an 80Hz high-pass filter to remove low frequency hum, rumble or wind. Use the patented dbx OverEasy compressor to transparently smooth out uneven dynamics. Eliminate vocal sibilance and high frequency distortion with the frequency tunable De-Esser. Fine-tune the Enhancer HF Detail control to add sparkle and crispness, and make adjustments to the LF Detail control to add fullness and depth. And, the separate threshold and ratio controls on the Expander/Gate allow you to subtly reduce headphone leakage or radically gate noisy sound sources.
