Of more interest in the context of this review, the C2 also included the Big Bottom circuit for the first time. The rear panel carries the ubiquitous IEC mains inlet with integral fuse holder and two sets of inputs and outputs for each channel. Adjusting this control allows the most appropriate range of frequencies to be enhanced by the processing. The Drive control sets the threshold for the dynamics processing and should be adjusted until the adjacent green LED flashes on bass peaks, indicating the onset of processing. Advancing the Drive control increases the amount of processing, and the LED reflects this quite well with its duration and brightness.

Traditional EQ increases the output level of the targeted frequencies. Adding EQ to boost selected frequencies typically results in a perceived loss of other frequencies, which are then also boosted to compensate. Over three decades of research, development and refinement have kept the Aural Exciter at the cutting edge.
The new Aural Exciter and Optical Big Bottom features the same no-compromise audio quality Aphex is known for, with the highest quality componentry and rugged, durable construction to withstand the rigors of travel and constant use. For individual sounds or entire mixes, the Aural Exciter brings out detail, clarity and imaging that elevates your sound without adding level. For vocals and spoken dialog, it can dramatically increase intelligibility. For individual instruments, it adds punch and presence.
And on mixes, it adds power, presence and sparkle. The Aural Exciter is the ideal solution for breathing life into MP3s and other compressed audio files. Optical Big Bottom The Optical Big Bottom adds deep, powerful low-frequency punch, without the unwanted level boost that comes from adding traditional EQ. Deeper, more resonant bass response with tighter articulation helps to extend low frequency power and spectrum without the build-up or driver-damaging tendencies of bass EQ.
Applications Recording, Mixdown and Post Production - The Aural Exciter was born in the recording studio, and its legacy is founded on thousands of legendary recordings bearing the unmistakable Aphex sound. Engineers and producers have used the Aural Exciter to bring out vocals; and on instruments from acoustic to electric and eclectic to exotic. Live Sound - At Front of House, the Aural Exciter can help to bring out an individual player or add dimension to the entire mix, making it an important tool for the challenges of changing venues and acoustics.
Monitor engineers also depend on the Aural Exciter to improve clarity and articulation of monitor and in-ear mixes on stage without having to increase volumes to dangerous levels. Installed Sound - Ideal for adding intelligibility and clarity to challenging spaces and loudspeaker placement, the Aural Exciter can deliver audio clarity under the most demanding conditions. DJ - In the eternal quest for more volume and more bass, the Aural Exciter delivers, while also addressing the need for brightness and definition without the use of speaker-damaging EQ.
