All three of these are built on the same core schematic, essentially the same circuit, just with different controls and different specific components used. Originally I had only reviewed the "A" version because it seemed at the time some years ago that the A was the one most commonly found on the used market.

Plug the cord into the unit and mains power. Note that the xs does not have a power switch. Power consumption is low. If you do not plan to use the xs for an extended period of time, unplug it. Page 11 dB by which the input signal must change in level to produce a 1dB increase in the signal level at the output of the xs. A setting of indicates an input:output ratio wherein a 2dB increase in signal above threshold will produce a 1dB increase in output signal.

PeakStop comes after the compression, gating and output gain circuitry; this provides for an absolute limit to be put on the peak excursions at the output.

PeakStop works instantaneously; Some common examples include: mixing consoles, musical instruments, patch bays and other signal processors.

For more specific cabling information, refer to Installation Considerations, page Page Installation Considerations Severe damage to system components may result. Patch Bay In the studio, the xs may be connected to a patch bay such as a dbx PB to allow it to be used anywhere in the studio system.
