The TUBE-TECH HLT 2A is a totally new kind of eq, combining Hi and Lo shelving with a midrange T- Filter. This combination has not before been designed in the analogue domain.
HLT 2A is a stereo unit, featuring low and high shelving filters and a T-Filter.
The T-Filter bends the whole frequency spectrum around a selectable midrange frequency.
When high frequencies go up in amplitude, lows go down or vice versa. The shelving filters are designed around a high gain tube amplifier and the T-Filter is a passive filter placed after the shelving filters and the output amplifier. All three sections are supplied with a bypass switch. In addition to these controls the HLT2A also feature Hi and LO cut filters + an overall bypass switch.
