We are selling this rare vintage EMT compressor, limter, expander in working condition, but untouched. We gave it a quick audio check and it passes all signals clear and without distortion. It does what it´s supposed to do. However it was not recapped or restored in our workshop yet. If you are interested in a complete refurbishment, let us know. 

About the EMT PDM 156 compressor.
This machine was developed by EMT Franz in 1970. EMT was famous for the EMT 140 plate reverb, the later 240 gold foil and further great reverbs. Also their record players for professional use were famous. Among the other great pro audio gear EMT build is this early PVM compressor.  The EMT PDM 156 is a compressor/limiter/expander stereo, which has balanced connections on the rear panel and all the classic controls completely programmable by the user. It has a  VU meter that displays the gain reduction in the lower part, while in the upper one you can see the response per second of the compressor, or of the limiter if key inserted ATT.  A special mention concerns the attack time of the compressor which was set to 2ms from the manufacturer and could be brought to 5ms acting on an internal regulation; while for the limiter the attack time was fixed at 80μs and for the expander it depended on the program. Finally, another feature of this product is that only the compressor and limiter functions could be used individually, while simultaneously the possible combinations were the following: compressor + limiter and compressor + limiter + expander
