Classic tube opto-compressor – 500 series

IGS Audio ONE LA 500 is an opto-compressor, built for the 500 series format. It is powered with 250V DC from an on-board voltage converter, so it can be plugged into any 500 series rack equipped with a standard power supply.

Every single ONE LA is hand made with high quality, matched components (1% metal film resistors, Wima caps).

ONE LA 500 is equipped with JJ tubes and individually calibrated to give you the unique and unspoiled experience of one of the best opto-compressors in the history – the Teletronix ’68 LA-2A. It is not only for harmonically rich vocals and strings, but also for huge and beefy drums and bass instruments.

Three audio transformers (IGS Custom in an audio path and OEP in sidechain) have been used to provide excellent performance and with only two knobs and a single compressor/limiter switch, there is nothing that could go wrong.

Quick service and reasonable price. Angus was helpful and transparent.20/07/23 Update. I had an issue with some equipment that I purchased from these guys, and true to form, they were supportive and gave me consistent feedback on the progress of my concern. Elliot and Darren were incredibly committed to getting me a satisfactory result. I have recommended Factory Sound to my mates because I actually believe that they will be taken care of.

The only place to buy pro audio gear from. Been coming here for over 20 years, and a lot of the same staff still look after me. Says a lot about their business. The best service, advice and gear every single time. If they don’t have it, they’ll get it for you. No need to worry about pricing, theirs is ALWAYS the best. All the staff go out of their way to help you, and will always get back to you. Cant’ recommend this place enough, 5 stars doesn’t seem like enough.
