Offered for sale, 8 Vintage DBX 2151 VCA’s. These guys are hard to find. Head on over to the shop and take a look!
Things are looking good for our ADM Stereo eq module. Next step for this guy is to get channel 2 calibrated and get it into one of our custom oak lunchboxes. (Had to put a little Joey D. through it) 😀 I’m also going to have to work on getting videos to work on this blog!!!
We just got in out Retro STA-Level Gold Edition on the bench. Had a couple issues at first completely due to shipping but things are looking up. We just did a preliminary run through the APx and here are the results. We’ll do a post later on comparing this without vintage unit and see how the […]

The Audix 35102 we acquired last month has been completely gone through, calibrated with our APx 525, and integrated into a beautiful oak lunchbox with illumated power switch and xlr I/O. This module features a heavily influenced Neve design and a pair of Mariniar T.1448 input transformers. This thing sounds great, and is being offered […]
