To commemorate API's 55th year in the audio industry, API announces the release of the 5500 Anniversary Edition. Based on the best-selling 5500 Dual Equalizer, the new 5500 Anniversary Edition retains all the sonic and functional characteristics of the standard production 5500 while adding additional design parameters and a commemorative vintage look. The 5500 Anniversary Edition is limited to just 55 production units and features the following:

Vintage Look with Classic API Sound
3U rackmount chassis featuring a vintage-style cream color worn by numerous iconic API consoles, including the highly-successful 1608-II Special Edition Consoles released last year.

Expanded Frequency Range
20Hz on the LO and 50Hz on the LO-MID, and on the high side on the two Hi bands, 15KHZ on the HI-MID and 40KHz on the HI band.

Variable High Pass Filter
Adjustable from 40 to 600 Hz on each channel - this is the same HP filter from the input module on the AXS and Vision consoles.

Mid/Side decoding circuit to allow for separate EQ control of the separated Mid and Side signals, then recombined at the output.
