I hate getting rid of these things, but other investments and experiments await. These are custom made, no expense spared preamp/DI/line amp/opto limiters all in one. Electronics have been modified extensively from front runner amps for old Ampex tape machines into lovely sounding tube mic/line amps with highly coveted Triad I/O transformers.

The icing on top: a custom integrated opto limiter circuit, with optional stereo link. All the original controls have been integrated, allowing the user to bypass the limiter, select between slow and fast release speeds, select meter function, and adjust gain and gain reduction (when limiter is active). Controls have been added on rear to trim input gain, and to bias the opto GR circuit.

I hand selected all the tubes in order to maximize the classic 1950s neon hot hifi sound these are known for. They have all the vintage vibe without any of the drawbacks of using the stock original units.

Includes original tube power supply and all related cabling.

I do not mess around with shipping delicate old gear. Hard lessons learned both buying and selling. Shipping and handling fees reflect the care that is put into making sure gear shows up undamaged.
