Re: [ARSCLIST] What about using DBX noise recuction boxes for playback of 78's?

Actually, dbx playback is an expander. dbx compresses at 2:1 with treble boost on record, expands 1:2 with treble reduction on playback. Not a good idea.

Though they did make some variations on the process, such as 2bx and 3bx, but they are a cheesy effect at best. They got some rave reviews by some users (<http://www.audioreview.com/cat/accessories/others/dbx/ 3bx-iii/PRD_117811_1590crx.aspx>) but are not recommended for accurate archival use, just a thrill on playback...

Playing a non-encoded source through a dbx decoder produces an effect much like running the audio through a really heavy-handed compressor. A really, really heavy-handed compressor.
