The Sontec EQ is a nice great and outstanding Equalizer with history. The Original Idea and Design was made by Burgess MacNeal and George Massenburg for the first parametric Equalizers. You can find a nice retrospective here on the Universal Audio Website.

We ordered the PCBs from Igor in December 2012.

We can’t find any 55K Resistor at Reichelt.de, so we had to build a 55K Resistor based on a 49.9K and a 5.10K Resistor.
