Orban Optimods

  • Orban Optimod 2200 - I have an Orban Optimod 2200 that was just taken out of service at WJST in Albany, GA. I had this little guy sounding great! I love the warm sound it produces. I recently did an upgrade at WJST and actually kept the 2200 in the rack for a period of time in case I didn’t like the new processor’s sound.   Condition - Used, but works great.  Price - $1250.00
  • Orban Optimod 6200S - I had this 6200S in use at WJST at the program source feeding an Optimod 2200 at the transmitter for clipping and stereo pilot signal. With our recent processing upgrade, I no longer need this at the program source. Would be great as a stand alone internet station audio processor or part of a chain as I had it. This particular unit does have two KROQ presets stored, if you have a rock station.  Condition - Used, but excellent. Price - $1700.00
