The ANT W696b mastering/summing bus EQ was first manufactured in 1984 by Telefunken successor ANT. All circuitry for the ANT W696B’s is high quality and build after the standards of the IRT (Institüt für Rundfunk Technik). ANT follows a long tradition of fine vintage German modules. In the beginning these modules were built for radio stations exclusively due to their high factory price. Years later they found their way into recording studios around the world as used and now affordable gear. 

The ANT W696b equalizers are fully transformer-balanced and all switches are stepped for 100% accurate recall settings. This makes sense if you are looking for a pair of eq´s that can process your stereo signals (i.e. for CD-mastering, stereo groups, stems, etc.) with 100% recallability. The 3-band equalizer design with additional hp- and lp-filters and many frequencies to choose from gives you all the flexibility you need. You can patch them in the mix bus, use them in groups or even for mono sources. 

The W696b is a really flexible eq with a relatively clean yet slightly aggressive character. It´s ability to do everything from subtle filtering to extreme EQ effect makes the W696 a very powerful tool in a small package. The sound is much more “in the face” than the one of the Sitral W295b or the Neumann PEa eq´s, but you can still add loads of high frequencies without getting any harshness. Punchy!
