    The 160a sounds closer to the "X" than 160VU. Come to think of it, none of their other compressors sounds like a VU(165,160S or SL). The only thing that sounds like a VU is a VU.

    Why is that? Why hasn't anyone else including dbx been able to make a hard knee compressor that sounds like the 160VU? I don't think it would be that hard but what do I know?

    Actually we can, and do, it is called the 160sl. Or do you mean why can't dbx make a unit that sounds like the 160VU for $500?

    Hey Jay,

    Do you still have that DOD Gonkulator that was listed on your website gear list? If yes, do you want to sell it to me? I love that ^#$%ed up pedal.

    p.s. I just realized I should have sent this offline, sorry Julian. If you've got a second go ahead and delete it.
