Universal Audio has announced that the 4-710d Four-Channel "Twin-finity" Mic Preamp & DI with Dynamics is now shipping. Here's what they have to say in their press release...
As the newest member of UA's popular analog hardware lineup, the 4-710d combines boutique-quality tube and solid state tones with smart, modern features like tone-blending, dynamics, and digital outputs -- making the 4-710d the most flexible preamp in UA history.
At the core of the 4-710d are four channels of tone-blending "Twin-finity" mic preamps with true-bypass 1176-style compression, plus four additional line inputs feeding eight channels of pristine analog-to-digital conversion. Based on the original TEC award-winning 710 Twin-Finity preamp -- favored by engineers including Al Schmitt (Jackson Browne, Dr. John, Diana Krall) and Matt Boudreau (The Samples, Sean O'Brien) -- each of the four mic preamp channels allows for continuously variable tone between 100% tube and 100% solid-state. Notable 4-710d features include:
Four TEC Award-winning 710 Twin-Finity™ microphone/line preamps
Dual-path 285-volt Class-A tube and transimpedance solid-state preamps
Phase-aligned tone-blending of tube and solid state circuits, creamy to crunchy
Newly designed 1176-style compression circuit per preamp channel
Eight channels of ultra high quality 24-bit A/D conversion
"While UA enjoys a reputation for classic hand-built analog equipment, we're not content to live in the past," commented Universal Audio President Matt Ward. "The
4-710D is another example of us pushing forward, giving customers modern conveniences like high-quality digital outputs, and the ability to blend between tube and solid state tones -- a feature not available anywhere else."
"The 4-710D is the result of several Universal Audio technologies converging into a great product," offered 4-710D Product Manager, Lev Perrey. "Ultimately, the 4-710D is a fantastic addition to any mic preamp arsenal, and we believe customers will be amazed by its awesome balance of classic tone and flexibility." Pricing and Availability:
The 4-710d is available and shipping now with a MAP price of $1999.
