    The ARX COMPO is a unique compressor/limiter designed for use in any professional audio dynamics control application, packaged in a compact 1 RU chassis. The COMPO operates as two independent compressor/limiters, with 'industry standard' variable Threshold, Ratio and Output gain controls. A Stereo Link switch on the front panel lets both channels track as a stereo pair in a Master/Slave configuration.

    Enhance Switch
    The COMPO features an 'Enhance' switch, which provides frequency restoration to preserve the spectral balance of the audio signal, compensating for the sagging Low and High frequency response of compressed program material. The best way to think of it is as a 'smart' loudness control.

    Wide Scale Metering
    There is comprehensive LED indication of all operating functions and status. Above or Below Threshold LED's on each channel give you instant visual confirmation of compressor activity, as well as easy to read LED Gain Reduction meters.

    Balanced Inputs and Outputs
    On the rear panel, each channel has true differential Balanced inputs and outputs, on both XLR and TRS jack connectors. Other features include an Active/Bypass switch for each channel, and passive RFI filters on the inputs.

    Universal AC Power
    AC power range is a universal 100 to 120V or 220 to 240V AC, and is connected to the unit via a removable power lead and standard 3 pin IEC connector, with built-in fuse and voltage change switch.

    ARX Quality
    With its smooth compression, intuitive user friendly layout, high density precision circuitry, and extensive user-variable operating parameters, the ARX COMPO is the ideal installation 'set and forget' compressor, and is also equally at home in Studio, Broadcast and Sound Reinforcement environments.

    Every day, ARX Audio interface products solve audio problems for thousands of people around the world. We know we're obsessive about audio quality, but we're betting that you are, too.
