Lindell Audio 7X-500 500-Series F.E.T. Compressor Lindell Audio 7X-500 500-Series F.E.T. Compressor
Sale Price: $329.99

The 7X-500 is Lindell Audio's take on the classic "1176" sound, packed in a compact 500-series format. The 7X-500 is a single channel compressor/limiter with a FET (field effect transistor) design that incorporates some new and exclusive features such as High Pass Sidechain Filter, Mix Knob mix between dry and wet signal (parallel compression).


what is the use of compressor in the audio system?

an audio compressor keeps the audio below a certain level. They are very common in broadcast radio to prevent over-modulation. They may also boost lower levels up, but when they do both they are usually called an audio processor rather than just a compressor. They also help maintain a high level of modulation be keeping the average audio level higher. This is why commercials often seem to be louder. The audio has been processed so much that all the audio is at maximum and doesn't vary or have any lower levels.
