Help/Advice needed on vintage DBX gear
I'm looking for some advice and assistance in using some older components that I recently re-discovered in my possession. I'm setting up a vintage audiophile stereo system for my house. I'm employing a pair of Crown DC300 power amps with a Crown IC150 preamp, which has two tape monitor circuits. I'll be running a DBX/BSR equalizer/spectrum analyzer and a dynamic low frequency synthesizer between the amps and preamp. Sources will include a pair of turntables, a cassette deck, tuner and a DBX CD player along with a Phillips CD recorder/duplicator. Most of what I'll be doing is listening to vinyl and transferring much of my extensive vinyl collection to CDs.
What I need advice and help with are two pieces of vintage DBX equipment. One is a DBX model 119 expander/compressor and the other a DBX model 124 noise reduction unit.
First, would it benefit to use both pieces? If not, which would be more beneficial to use for reduction of turntable source noise for ultimate recording to CD?
Second, how would you connect this piece of equipment? (IF it's the 124, I already know to Siamese channels 1&3 and 2&4)
Third, if both can be used, how would those connections be achieved?
If anyone can help, please email me at email@example.com, and thanks in advance.
