Buzz Audio REQ 2.2 is worth a try... I reviewed it and ended up buying the unit especially after taking the unit to Masterdisk and comparing it to their Sontecs.  Made the choice rather easy after that.


Thanks Larry. If you were a little closer I would invite myself over to check out your Buzz.  I would have to sell the 250c+ my newly arrived Blue 315 to move up to the Buzz.

I love to see a "462" version of the Buzz REQ 2.2...

Now that would be INCREDIBLE!!!!

Man you're not just kidding... that would be killer. That said, I'm happy with the way the Buzz works and the new filters are just great.

Hope all is well Allen, long time no speak... like Tape-Op in New Orleans before the levee broke (there's a song in there somewhere).

Sounds like a worthwhile trade imo... If you can't justify the price of an REQ-2.2 how could you justify a 4xx Sontec? I have to say being lucky enough to have both in the rack I'm tending to lean more on the REQ-2.2 these days for most chores although the Sontec's low & high end can be hard to beat on some projects.

Its the lure of a 400.
Looks like I have a Buzz coming in a week or two on loan(possible purchase).
But thanks Ed for the invite! your room looks nice and open

I've been off the forums for a while but I'm getting back into it. I'm good (getting married next year), business is picking back up from the 2009 slump.

I sure miss the ol' Tape Op conferences. They were a lot of fun.

Is there any difference in sound between the 432 series and the 482 series?

As far as I'm aware, the 432 and 462 circuits and components are identical. But best ask Tony Mantz aka Jack the bear, he has one of each...
