The EQF 500 reissue is Aphex's modern take on the classic Aphex EQF-2 500 series equalizer, originally developed around 1976.

The EQF-1 and EQF-2 were designed for the API modular consoles. Aphex built the very first EQF-1 by hand, which led to a limited production run. The EQF-2 was then designed to include shelving EQ for the high and low bands.

History shows that the EQF-1 and EQF-2 were some of the very first 500 series modules released that were not made by API. Fast forward to 2012 and the classic EQF-1 and EQF-2 modules continue to be highly sought after by 500 series enthusiasts.

And now, the EQF 500 mixes a classic design with improved control layout and modern components for high headroom and low noise. The EQF 500 is a three band semi-parametric EQ that includes independently selectable variable high and low pass filters. The high and low EQ bands can be switched between shelving and peaking. Illuminated buttons for all functions ensure the EQ’s state can be seen from a distance. The output of the EQF 500 is balanced with a Jensen JT-11DL  output balancing transformer.
