: I saw one at a store but the sales person couldn't tell me anything about it. You mentioned that you use one in your big rig. How do you hook it up to the Navigator? What should it cost?

It's a studio/live sound processor, their "Sonic Maximizer". I was turned onto it by another URB player who told me it enhanced his amplified sound. It really seems to focus of the sound and adds a studio-like quality; a subtle effect, but I really like it, it seems to help make the output even more natural-sounding. Technically, this unit applies a phase correction to higher frequencies and breaks the signal into three frequency bands: 20-150Hz., 150-1200Hz., and 1200-20kHz. According to the docs I have, it delays the low band by 2.5ms and the middle band by 0.5ms - there's more jargon on making "dynamic amplitude corrections" to the high frequencies, and other monitoring of "relative harmonic levels" - Whatever - all I know is that, after I've tweaked the simple settings per instructions, and A/B the sound with it in and out, that I love the polished result. YMMV.

The one I have has noise reduction circuit, too (hence the NR in the name), but that was only because my son owned that unit and I bought it from him. I like that added extra as well, especially when I get into higher volume levels on electric bass gigs, where I also enjoy its effects except when I want a more "raw" sound.

You can check out the marketing blurb/tech explanation from the link below. It's worth a listen if you can borrow one to see how you like it - I have it in the effects loop of my Eden.

I was going to say that they go for $200-250, but just did an inquiry at ZZounds.com and they emailed me a price of $159.
