Radial Engineering PhazerBank

This 4-channel rackmount version of Radial's popular Phazer allows real-time phase alignment of multiple sources (such as two mics or mic/DI combos) to create richer, more realistic tones. Suggested uses include guitars, basses, kick drum, and snare top/bottom mics. Features include a Class-A signal path, balanced and unbalanced I/Os, variable (1 to 180 degree) phase control, polarity shift for the 181- to 360-degree range and a lowpass filter for focusing the effect on low frequencies. Retail: $999.

Alto D4 Amplifier

The d4 puts four 750-watt (@ 4-ohm) power amps into a lightweight (17.4-pound), two-rackspace chassis. Features include variable-speed forced (back-to-front) air cooling; four independent channels (each with separate AC transformer secondaries, power supplies and protection circuits); four recessed front-panel gain pots with power, signal, clip and protection LEDs for each; and switchable rear-panel lowpass filters for sub feeds. A bridge mode can link two channels for a 1,500W sub feed, with two 750W channels for stereo mains.

Oram S200 Live Mixer

Developed by John Oram and Germany's Günter Erdmann, the S200 is designed to bring high-performance audio to the live setting, whether as a main mixer or a sidecar to an analog or digital desk. This rackmount, 10-input (eight mic/line plus a stereo channel) console features high-end specs (20 to 60k Hz response, -127.5dB noise floor, +24dBu headroom), three aux sends, three stereo returns, 80Hz highpass filters and three-band EQ with sweepable midrange.
