All the inputs and outputs of the FCS-966 are electronically balanced, with optional transformer balancing. To make installation of the FCS-966 easier, we've provided three differerent interface connectors: XLR-type, 1/4 TRS jack and Phoenix/Combicon screw terminals.
The EQ IN buttons switch the EQ path
into circuit. When switched out, or power fails, a high-quality relay switches the input signal directly to the output connectors.
30 EQ filter faders on ISO centres, each with nominal /-15dB of gain. Positive centre-detent on 45mm long-throw precision faders.
Sweepable high pass filter, frequency adjustable from OUT (flat) up to 250Hz.
Smooth shelving filter, /-6dB of gain at 50Hz
Smooth shelving filter, /-6dB of gain at 14kHz.
Used for overall unity gain adjustment. Adjustable from - infinity to 10dB.
Triple-point clip detector that indicates red when the internal signal is clipping at any one of three critical points.
Shows output signal level (input signal when eq is bypassed) from -24dBu to 18dBu in 8 steps.
