DBX 161

Never used one, the image above is of a pair of 161's... they often are seen in pairs as are the 160's - both models could be linked to make a pair of 161's or a pair of 160's & you often see them at brokers sites in batches of pairs... Here's some stuff from the www:

"The 161 is a budget version (of the 160) with phono connectors and without turn on/turn off transient protection or ground loop compensation."

Controls are: threshold, output gain, meter function, compression.


  • max input level +21dB
  • distortion .075% 2nd harmonic at infinite compression at +4dBm output; .5% 3rd harmonic typical at infinite compression ratio
  • attack time 15 milliseconds for 10dB level change above threshold. 5 milliseconds for 20dB level change above threshold. 3 milliseconds for 30dB level change
  • release rate 120dB/second
  • compression ratio continuously variable from 1:1 to 120:1
  • threshold continuously variable from 10mV to 3V
