VESTAX DCR-1500 DJ Filter Isolator ENHANCEMENT
ANYONE WHO HAS USED THIS ISOLATOR BEFORE KNOWS THAT IN ACTUALITY EVEN THOUGH IT CAME WITH A HEFTY PRICE TAG, THIS THING HAS SOME ISSUES. FILTER SWEEPS ARE HARSH AND DISTORTED.
For $650 I replace all 43 muddy sounding op amps, and about 80+ low grade caps. The parts are VERY expensive.
I actually spent HOURS choosing the perfect op amp and cap for each section of the device. The result is an isolator that sounds SMOooooOTH. The EQ section has lows that are beefy but not muddy like before. The mids are no longer harsh, but soulful. The high end is undistorted and detailed.
The filter sweeps are dreamy and addictive sounding. I'd put this up there with the MOST expensive boutique made Isolators.
