Reviews

"I like what I heard. Listening on a variety of loudspeakers: JBL, KRK, Meyer, Tannoy, Yamaha and a few lesser known names I discovered that the BBE Process provided a nice punch to older recordings without being brittle or shrill. The LF contour emphasized the bottom end, without adding undue boominess"
Mix
"I heard better dynamics and cleaner sound ...restores a proper stereo imaging and separation ...15 - 20% increase in apparent openness and separation ...the results were excellent."
Stereophile
"As close as we've seen to a magic black box, the BBE Sonic Maximizer is probably the most cost-effective improvement you can add to your rig. It's a top contender for the "Biggest Bang for the Buck" award."
Guitar Player
"BBE's effect ...on old jazz and rock material was capable of transformations. No one but a pedant could call the result contrary to hi-fi principles. Without BBE processing, the sound was amorphous and two-dimensional ... with BBE, the energy leapt from the loudspeakers!"
