Universal Audio 2-610

Dual Channel Valve Mic Pre

Order Code: 2610S
RRP: $5,099.00

Two smokin channels of mic preamp, coming right up!

Not only does it look right and feel right, the sound is exceptional. This is in part thanks to a pair of valves on each channel (12AX7A and 12AT7), and also thanks to some serious heritage in analogue circuitry.

You can plug a microphone in, and select impedance. Use it as a cranking bass DI (also with selectable impedence), or you can plug a line level signal in and rather than relying on 2-610 as your preamplifier, you can run the signal through and take full advantage of the high / low shelving EQ, while deciding just how hard you'd like to smack the valves.

If you're more looking for a channel strip with the '610' features on board, check out LA-610MkII or the legendary 6176
