The Maag Audio EQ4M is a 6-Band Dual Channel Mastering EQ with AIR BAND (shelf boost from 2.5 to 40kHz), a true in/out bypass, a transparent INPUT ATTN (attenuator), and stepped (detent) controls.

In 1993, Cliff Maag first introduced the AIR BAND to the audio world in the NTI EQ3. The EQ3 was a dual channel 6-band EQ powered in a 19 inch rack and to this day is hailed as one of the most musical equalizers ever made. Over two decades later, Maag Audio has captured the spirit of the EQ3 in the EQ4M by providing more power, more headroom, and more control than ever before.

More Power
The EQ4M rides on extremely clean +-18v rails without the need of any supporting chassis or power source. Just plug it in and make music.

More Headroom
More power, means more headroom. The EQ4M has an extra 2v compared to the EQ4 and boosts headroom to +29 dBu.

More Control
The EQ4M offers more control with its true in/out bypass, a transparent INPUT ATTN (attenuator), and an extra 15 kHz selection on the AIR BAND. All controls are stepped (detented).

Specifications

Frequency Response: -2 dB points, 10Hz & 75kHz
Nominal Input Impedance XLR): 48 K Ohms, balanced
Nominal Output Impedance (XLR): 50 Ohms, balanced
Headroom: +29 dBu @ 10 K Ohms, +28.5 dBu @ 600 Ohms

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreLangley, British Columbia
I waited a long time for this unit to arrive at the Port Coquitlam Long and McQuade Music Store...
So as could be expected my review for this product could have been a negative one due to my experience of the shipping(waited for 1.5 months), but I know it wasn't my sales associates fault, more so from the broker and importing at the border(sat at the border for 3 weeks).
Anyways, this unit was worth the wait.
What an amazing piece of kit. If you are unsure about purchasing a mastering EQ with a price tag like this then I will be the first to tell you that you can be rested assure that it is a solid choice for a extremely smooth, rich, airy tone when you engage the frequencies on this unit. the price will probably double in ten years so I advise you to pick it up now while it is still priced lower than a API 5500
This unit has only been in circulation for a year so it isn't a well known mastering unit but it can make your mix and tracking sound like a dream recording, honestly. I own the SW version and it doesn't sound the same at all, it is like 10 times better.
I have no quarrels about the unit being limited to just a set amount of frequency bands, the ones chosen work very well. the air band is jaw dropping when used on the right source material. it will take a flat boring mix into a world of colourful possibilities.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
