Designed For Empirical Labs’ 500 Series Modules

The Empirical Labs EL500 Rack is a high-end studio/live rack designed to accommodate Empirical Labs 500 series modules. Unlike conventional racks, modules do not protrude from the front-panel; instead they fit perfectly within the enclosures for a sleeker look. The ultra-quiet power supplier is over 30dB quiet than most standard power supplies. This ensures optimal audio performance and fidelity from any compatible device. The unique Flush Mount system allows you to easily mount your modules within the rack, allowing you to get setup in no time.

Integrated Instrument Input

One of the most unique features of the EL500 is the integrated instrument input. The instrument input THD is less than .0006 percent, resulting in the best possible audio fidelity. The 1/4-inch instrument preamp/direct box is designed to automatically switch the modules in the left’s input to this front phone jack once something is plugged into it. It also includes a link switch for stereo linking compressors.

Robust, Versatile Design

The EL500 features an integrated 48V Phantom Power supply, designed for more demanding equipment. The rear of the unit features XLR and Phone Plug inputs and outputs. It features a total of 9 input and output connectors for maximum flexibility. The robust all-metal chassis is not only highly durable but looks sleek, providing a retro-style aesthetic for a vintage touch.
