The Live Test
As you can see and hear in the live stream, the PliXir BAC3000 plays at a high performance level. The sound is fast, neutral and open. This filter does not at all give the idea that we are dealing with a coloration or some other sort of ‘creamy sauce’. In the test it appears that the ‘signature’ is towards the Isol-8. This also gives speed, air and openness to a system. The YETI and Isotek tend more towards a touch of warmth and a more solid mid/low. That may be desirable. In our system it fits.
What we also want to say with this is that a filter has to fit in a system: it is a total picture. Too much openness, speed and air can be tiring. Too much cream makes a system dull and boring. It’s all about balance.
