The dbx 166xs is a 2-channel compressor/limiter/gate that features dbx’s world-renowned Overeasy compression technology for the stage or studio.

The dbx 166xs will help smooth out uneven levels in your mix, add sustain to guitars and fatten up your drums. When it comes to vocals, the dbx 266xs clamps down and lifts them to the front of the mix helping to make them stand out and be heard!

The dbx 166xs Compressor/Limiter/Gate operates in stereo or dual-mono modes making it a truly versatile performer. Clear precise LED metering gives you clear readouts of gain reduction, compression threshold and gate threshold making it easy to set the proper levels for a given task.

Another dbx exclusive on the 166xs is their AutoDynamic attack and release controls. This makes it easy to set and forget these important parameters resulting in a smooth, predictable sound that stays in check but is pretty much invisible as it performs it’s function.

Connections include quality XLR I/O along with ¼” TRS jacks. Choose either connector depending on your setup. In addition there’s a handy side-chain insert jack on the rear panel.
