Klark Teknik chose the recent Frankfurt MusikMesse 2004 as the international launch forum for the next generation of analog graphic EQ. Twenty years since the launch of the formidable DN360, the industry standard graphic EQ even today, Klark Teknik is delighted to unveil the brand new DN370.

DN370 is, "an analog graphic EQ for the 21st Century, according to Klark Teknik." Sales and marketing director David Cooper says, “Even with the ongoing success of units like the Helix digital EQ system, it’s clear that analog audio still provides the preferred solution in a very large percentage of applications. The instant access provided by a traditional user interface as found on the new DN370 is still the choice of many engineers and installers, and our job as a design and manufacturing house is to analyze and address the demands of the market.”

Klark Teknik stresses that the new unit is not a replacement for DN360.  As Cooper points out, “DN360 is the absolute industry standard and we fully expect it to continue for the foreseeable future. The aim with DN370 is two-fold: firstly, simply to enhance and modernize the existing range of Klark Teknik equalizers, and secondly to provide a unit that attracts customers who do not currently choose Klark Teknik graphics. We have always been known as the EQ company, and our range now offers every possible combination of EQ in both analog and digital formats and at several price points.”

The list of features and enhancements is impressive: 45mm faders (with protective dust covers) that offer precise control of an entirely new configuration of the "proportional Q" filter type for which Klark Teknik graphics are world famous. Aimed particularly at monitoring applications, each channel also offers two swept and overlapping 18dB notch filters with illuminated combined frequency and in/out rotary controls. Even greater control is provided by swept 12dB per octave high and lowpass filters on each channel, allowing the frequency response of a given channel to be precisely tailored to its use.

Housed in a sturdy 3RU steel chassis, all inputs and outputs are electronically balanced (with transformers as a factory option) with pin 2 hot throughout. Phoenix connectors are fitted to the rear panel as standard, and like all Klark Teknik products, the DN370 carries a three-year international factory warranty.
