Impressive
06.03.2017
Purchased from Thomann as it was cheaper in Germany than anywhere in the UK and they had it in stock. Ordered on a Wednesday, here on the following Tuesday.

First impression as I've only used it for a week - used it on my output, yet to properly integrate it into my set up.
If you have a well mixed track, this really takes it to the next level, warms up the whole sound and tightens up the bottom end.
Mixes seem clean and warm, the stereo image is noticeably clearer.

Pros - at this price, everything. Ease of use - plug ins are great but they just don't compare. Just turn it on and adjust to taste, very quick. It can be subtle or heavy and pronounced, can be pushed harder.

Cons - at the moment I can't find a bad word to say, I'm sure it has it's limitations but so far, I'm a happy owner.

Stereo EQP-WA usage
Piano8274, 08.11.2018
I have 2 EQPWA's to use on stereo instruments and on my mixbuss and in general I am very pleased with the units. I like their sound a lot, it sounds 'expensive' and 'pro', but it also has some minor issues that some might not be bothered with, but which I found to be a bit annoying:

- I found that the details of the units (the knobs) cosmetically often had problems (bad paint etc),

- also it is sometimes difficult to match the settings on 2 units by the knobs' settings since the knobs aren't 100% aligned.

- Also when turning the units on, you can get some 'pop and click' sounds (which apparently is inherent to analogue gear like this) while changing the units frequencies settings. These 'clicks' really don't happen while your are recording, but they do occur while you are searching for the right setting, which I found to be a bit annoying at times.

But once you get your settings right and start recording, the sound is really beautiful, warm , full of life and somehow really sounds more '3D'. To conclude, I would recommend these units despite the small issues.

Hochwertiger Pultec Klon mit klanglichen Defiziten
tillbehr, 26.05.2021
Ich war auf der Suche nach einem Pultec Klon, der nicht nur vom Aussehen, sonder auch vom Klang her an die originalen EQP's ran kommt. Ein Pultec Style EQ mit CineMag Übertragern für 700 Schleifen? Nehm ich...

Zu Beginn erstmal die positiven Aspekte des EQ's. Das Gerät ist super verarbeitet, hat ein schönes Gewicht und die Bedienung ist gleich zum Original. Der Pultec Trick mit Boost und Cut gleichzeitig klappt auch gut.

Vom Klang her fehlt es mir allerdings sehr an dem "Charme" des Originals. Die Höhen ab 8 kHz wirken für mich eher zischelnd als seidig weich. Auch greift der EQ "härter" als das Original. Gut, jetzt könnte man sagen, dass es sich ja auch nicht um das Original handelt und zu dem Preis ist das schon Meckern auf hohem Niveau.
Ja, ABER ich suchte einen Passiven EQ der genau (oder annähernd) den Charakter des Originals hat.
Fündig geworden bin ich dann bei AudioScape. Dieser Pultec Klon liegt dem Echten tatsächlich sehr nahe. Leider sind die Geräte nur schwer zu bekommen und kosten auch etwas mehr.

Abschließen möchte ich betonen, dass ich den EQP-WA keineswegs schlecht reden möchte. Für den Preis kriegt man ein ordentliches Gerät, nur halt leider keins, das klanglich an das Original kommt.

IMPRESSIONNANT
ABBY77, 29.03.2021
Que dire: J'ai acheté deux EQP-WA de chez WARM malgré que je ne sois pas fan de de la marque.
J'ai la chance d'avoir dans mon studio deux ressue PULTEC EPQ1A qui sonnent au top Le gros son PULTEC. Vu le prix de WARM je me suis dit pourquoi pas équiper mon 2eme studio avec ça. Evidement le PULTEC est largement au dessus dans la finesse et ne sature pas quand on envoi la sauce.
A ma grande surprise le WARM m'a étonné par sa qualité de son et sa précision. Il faut juste faire attention avec le niveau d'entrée qui peut vite saturé. Avec une bonne maîtrise de l'appareil l'Eq reste impressionnant. Ca marche super bien. Qualité prix imbattable. Si vous n'avez pas les moyens d'acheter un Pultec le Warm sera vous donner une grande satisfaction.
