DUAL DISCRETE PHONO / LINE PREAMP
Contains 1 line and 2 different sounding phono stages: the original MX180 stage for immediate rodec party sound and a brand new rodec engineered discrete stage, that features a deeper and more relaxed sound. You can switch between the two phono circuits with a simple flick of a button.
Next to this, we've added the option to push an additional +20dB of gain to help get those lower level records to match.
ANALOG STEREO EQUALIZER
Recreation of the original MX-18 EQ that has low/high and presence (mid) built in divided sections to provide a larger, independent range of tone control. Don’t expect the kill EQs you find in today’s DJ mixers. This is a usable EQ to musically tweak your favorite recordings.
Engineered & assembled by hand in Belgium. 2mm of carefully painted aluminium panels, sturdy metal knobs and locked in a solid piece of eco-friendly, locally sourced wood crafted by furniture artisan Eletta Daemen.
The RODEC SoundMachines SM200 & SM300 dominated the pro-audio sales in the early 80’s. The MX-series were the successors, with the MX18, released in 1986, becoming the ‘reference’ in the DJ segment, up to now still the blueprint of a contemporary professional mixer.
The Rodec MX180, successor of the MX18 was introduced in 1990 with a crossfader and the XLR Master output option as the most important new features.
More than 20 different MX-models were released between 1984 and 2008.
The first sensation I had when unpacking the Bunk 01 was of an aesthetic order. The finish is so
exquisite that I could only be amazed at the quality of the workmanship.
Of course this wouldn’t mean anything without an equivalent level of sonic excellence, and I
The soundstage reached up to the ceiling of my listening room and extended laterally beyond
the speakers. Instrument placement within the soundstage was very accurate. Reproduction of
timbres was wholly natural and unforced. The sound was warm but very detailed, with powerful
I had the best result with lively cartridges and the phono preamp’s gain level set low.
All in all a resounding success!
