Vacuum-tube warmth and presence with solid-state flexibility.

The Avalon VT-747SP Stereo Compressor|EQ lets you choose between tube tone and the classic Class A discrete transistor sound. Ideal for high-performance DAW input signal conditioning, stereo bus compression-EQ, stereo keyboards, and analog mastering applications. This Avalon Compressor combines a stereo tube-discrete Class A opto-compressor with musical 6-band program EQ, L-R output level and gain reduction metering, and internal regulated power supplies. All in just 2 rackspaces.

  • Stereo Class A 6-band discrete passive program EQ
  • TSP twin signal path, vacuum tube bypass
  • Low noise -92dB
  • Fully balanced Class A input and DC coupled outputs
  • Stereo dynamic 60dB high resolution output meters
  • High-quality analog VU meter for gain reduction
  • High headroom +36dB input before overload
  • Spectral side-chain monitor for pre listen
  • EQ pre-post selection for opto-compressor
  • Sealed silver relays for all signal routing
  • Internal discrete regulated power supplies
