Not all brats are bad.

Usually when you hear the word "brat" you think of a mischievous/misbehaving youngster but that is not the case with The Inward Connections Brat. On the contrary The Brat is sure to make your audio "behave" and do your bidding. I think it's worth auditioning this 4 Band Parametric EQ. Inward Connections has a great reputation and their clients are well respected in the audio industry. I like the layout, legible controls and the 500 series format is a definite plus.
