superior high quality built  Time owned: more than 12 months
This EQ is built to last a lifetime. From the enclosure , toggle switches , knobs ect have a highest quality feel. You can make your audio sound like a fm broadcaster with just any cheap mic. The best part it Julius will always be there to help you through and issues and is quite patient and knowledgeable. This guy is the real deal. His units are all you need to have outstanding audio. The only other thing you need is a full deep voice and you will be the king of the hill. Thank you Juius for all you did for me. I will add he can make you any cable configuration you want. HIGHLY recommend W2IHY units.

The best solution to make the most of your modulation  Time owned: more than 12 months
Eq Plus W2IHY is exceptional, as well as direct support and the availability of Julius or Julius whom I always thank. I'm fine with my Eq Plus now, but I do not conceal that I had some difficulty setting in the beginning to find the best setting. Every once in a while, modulation brought annoying noises, but I did not understand. The secret in my opinion is basically the two knobs that regulate the compressor and the output level. Just lower the compressor level as much as possible and gradually increase the output level keeping in mind the RTX ALC, to get the most out of it and the game is done! .... The rest of the knobs are really easy to set up, just simply adjust the input and expansion level thresholds. There is no better radio amateur market, for me Eq Plus is the # 1 with a nice Heil sound PR-40 or PR-781 microphone that will give you great satisfaction in modulation compression and brilliance. I use it in my two transceivers : Icom IC775 DSP and Yaesu FTDX5000 MP and it works fine. One more boost !!

Excellent Customer Service  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have had the pleasure of conducting business with Julius (W2IHY) for a number of years and cannot stress enough of the OUTSTANDING customer service this wonderful man has provided! In today's business world, this is indeed a "breath of fresh air"... Julius has always been there to assist in any way possible to resolve issues, that are usually those of customer error rather than product design or poor quality.

On a personal note, I have used his 8 band equalizer, EQ Plus, I-Plus for many years and have not experienced any issues... My most recent acquisition from Julius is his excellent 3x4 Switch Plus along with two 1x4 Antenna switches. He assisted me over the phone when I had some questions with the installation. Julius provided extremely helpful suggestions which resulted in all of my equipment operating flawlessly. I can now switch between 3 transceivers and 3 different linear amplifiers and one antenna; all interfaced with W2IHY's designed audio system and 3x4 Switch Plus! Thank you, Julius, for your wonderful customer service and exceptional equipment design that you've provided to the amateur radio community!

Once setup you won't operate without it.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This unit puts together the best these systems have to offer for fidelity, speech compression, downward expansion, level control and addition of small amount of time delay enhancement.
The results are clean high average RF power without distortion that sounds way beyond an un processed audio signal.
The secret is to understand what the unit is doing and set levels accordingly.
It is not a plug and play unit without the need for education.
As for microphones, only a good Dynamic with a response down to 50 hertz and out to about 4000 hertz is needed. No expensive wide range mic are needed. Only for the speech band, not entertainment out to 7 to 10k hertz.
There are several dynamic mikes in the $20 range that will sound just as good as the expensive spread.
I'm there and can tell you it works. I've tested 3 different mike to see.
Another tidbit; the compression plays with the receiving ends receiver AGC. The higher average RF power makes my signal stronger on their S meter reading and increases my signal to noise ratio over the average of all the other signals in that time frame.
This plays out everyday by my being heard when many others are not, even in poor propagation conditions caused by the mass eruptions on the sun that have been wrecking 40m band propagation in recent times.
good luck.

Excellent!!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I absolutely love my EQ Plus! I get nothing but great audio reports and always receive compliments on my audio. I run a Heil 781 or PR40 with this unit. I have a rack full of Berhinger audio gear but this one box does just as well. also Julius is a great guy to talk and deal with and he is always willing to help me with questions or cables....

Pileup Buster  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Operating from within an HOA with a fence-mounted multi-band parallel dipole at 6'8" above ground and only 500 watts - I am regularly busting through 40-meter DX pileups since getting the EQ Plus. There's nothing more I can say... ya gotta get this thing!!!

BEST IN CLASS  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
i could reiterate all the ravs. the eqplus gives me the best audio as confirmed by my net members of the Squirrel Net on 3645. all agree! running an electovoice EV320 . this is on my yaesu FTDX3000. better than any other processors and eq's i have tried, and i have tried plenty. it also gives me PUNCH on DX. really does boost my average peak power on DX . its a keeper. and Julius...what can you say, except the very very best in all ways.
this unit is not leaving my shack.

Fabulous product and service!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I'm now using the EQ Plus and 8 Band Equalizer with a TS-990. While the radio has plenty of internal controls, I find the outboard W2IHY units still give me that extra edge. Julius was able to listen to my XMIT audio over the air and give me fine-tune the settings via phone. Great Product/Great Service!
