I'm in love★★★★★After getting the AMEK bx-2098EQ some time ago, I was sure that an EQ couldn't sound nicer ... until I heard the NSEQ-2. In addition to a very nice interface design, this plugin achieved top marks in terms of musicality. I was lucky enough to get the EQ in the deal (also here). Patience and prudence definitely pay off with plugins.
But about the EQ: No matter how you set the parameters: It never sounds harsh, distorted or inharmonious. The bass and treble areas can be emphasized and rounded off excellently. Is that bad now? Not at all. Certainly you can hardly do anything wrong here, but you can also do a lot right if you emphasize the right frequencies. Then the sun does indeed rise and no EQ that I know of can do that in this musicality. In the high heights, it does not come close to the air behavior of the Mäag EQ4, but it sounds more differentiated and more subtle here. The sensitive midrange around 2-5 KHz can also be emphasized very sensitively and harmoniously without it sounding unnatural.
Compared to my beloved AMEK bx-2098EQ, it is noticeably rounder and "tamer". The Amek can simply grab it more courageously here and there and with the Glow / Sheen function has a greater radius of action. Somehow that wouldn't suit the Millennia either. The characters of the two EQs complement each other quite well and are each suitable in their own way for high-quality sound refinement. For fretsaw work, however, I would strictly decline both!
In short: The NSEQ-2 is definitely the most musical EQ I've ever used. Absolutely unsuitable for repair work of any kind, he sets the highest level in the refinement of the master chain.
Best EQ for AC Gtr!★★★★★To be honest, when I tried the preset for the Acoustic Guitar track, I got surprised!
It really brings out the clarity, body and nice tone from the guitar track.
In my routine workflow, usually I will test out the preset and start to tweak and find out the way that how to use that particular plugin.. but this plugin is like instant buy decision to me!
Synths and samples★★★★★You really have to try this one on synths and samplers, it deepens up the sound in a wonderful, spacious way.
Very nice★★★★★I love this one, it sounds great and it's very useful to deharsh highs from guitars. It will be even better you could solo M and S sides but I use other plugin before it to enable that function.
Millenia NSEQ-2★★★★★Sound is smooth and clear. Excellent as a mastering EQ. My one suggestion for revision- it's hard to tell where the gain knobs are set which is a problem when trying to get back to a setting. Wish a dB/freq/Q amount would pop up when hovering/adjusting knobs. JFET/VT offers usable coloration choices. Nothing ugly here!
Great Top End★★★★☆Very interesting EQ, with a useful feature set.
Hard to make this sound ugly, and a high frequency range you can crank the heck out of.
Adds nice air to a source without stridency.
Liking this a lot!

Mixing★★★★★This plugin was probably one of the first really high end sounding Eq's I came across that really felt like hardware, the smooth musical tone of this thing is so subtle and sweet. Works great for boosting high end, thickening the low end and just genrally produces great results with ease. It has sort of magic tone of its own and after doing some massive boosts the signal was still so clean and in tact. It works great as a mastering Eq, but I also love this on Vocals and instruments as a way of sweetening sounds that may need a bit of extra shine and analogue flavor.
Incredible piece of gear, I would definitely give this one a go!
Ive bought most of the Plugin Alliance stuff and this is def in my top 5. !
