Since its introduction in 1975, close to a million Aphex Aural Exciters have found their way into recording studios and broadcast facilities, nightclubs and concert halls, arenas and airports, musicians’ and DJs’ rigs and houses of worship. The Aural Exciter’s patented technology has been often imitated but never duplicated.

Each of the Aural Exciter’s two independent channels feature Tune, Harmonics and Mix controls, enabling you to focus on select frequencies just like on an EQ. But unlike an EQ, the Aural Exciter’s harmonic processing doesn’t boost the signal’s output level, so it maintains a clear and balanced sound.

Traditional EQ increases the output level of the targeted frequencies. Adding EQ to boost selected frequencies typically results in a perceived loss of other frequencies, which are then also boosted to compensate. The Aural Exciter’s patented technology harmonically brings out the desired frequencies without adding gain. The result is audio that’s more balanced, more articulate and, simply put, better sounding.

Over three decades of research, development and refinement have kept the Aural Exciter at the cutting edge. The new Aural Exciter and Optical Big Bottom features the same no-compromise audio quality Aphex is known for, with the highest quality componentry and rugged, durable construction to withstand the rigors of travel and constant use.
