After seeing the eq curves at 4:40 its clear that this unit is a heavy hand paramentric eq, studio engineers and musicians would like it, its so inexpensive.
Not just engineers will like it! Early days with the little Loki but so far I love it. The weakness in my system has been a slight excess of deep and mid bass on some tracks, and very slightly recessed mids, which I put down to the otherwise excellent ProAc speakers and to the less than perfect placement in a NYC apt. Some acoustic treatments helped and I thought I would live with the compromises, given how musical and natural the system sounds overall.
With the Loki I have used subtle adjustments and voila! immediate improvement in the areas mentioned.
Seems very transparent. Well made. Easy to use, glad there are only 4 controls and it can be kept on 24/7 with tiny power useage. And a flick of the switch takes it out the system. For $149 this thing could be an outright bargain.
