The EQ on the 1253 could be described as potent, and very musical. I love mine! It has the ability to boost frequencies quite a bit without very much smear and phase shift. It is flexible and easy to dial in a sound i like.

Technically they are very well built; solid, rugged, reliable. The control graduations are accurate.

The info I get back from clients who have PQ1253 (and similar) units that I have racked and/or refurbished is that they really like the sound and the ease of use...... and that's the PQ1253 as well as the rack!

thanks guys. very helpfull. The seller never got back to me so well. That left me with no option. Now I am looking at a Calrec Minimixer 3. 20 channels 10 mono i/p w mic pres using Lundahl transformers,10 stereo i/p,4 stereo groups, 2 masters with compressors.
Any thoughts. I am pretty serious and am hovering between this and an old studer 189?
What do you think...?
Cheers again
