Product Description

LA-610 MkII Classic Tube Recording Channel
A classic tube mic preamp & LA-2A-style compressor in a single unit.

This classic channel strip design, with its warm preamp tone and smooth, natural-sounding compression, is updated with modern, user-requested features like true compressor bypass, larger metering, increased output, and an auto-switching power supply.
