Universal Audio, a manufacturer of high-quality vintage audio hardware and DSP software plug-ins for digital audio workstations, today announced the 710 Twin-Finity Single Channel, Tube and Solid-State, Tone-Blending Preamp.
This radically new UA preamp design with dual signal paths is centered around the innovative phase-aligned “Tone-Blending” knob which is continually variable from 100% Tube to 100% Solid-State offering easy access to a myriad of unique pre-amp tones. The UA 710 Twin-Finity is designed and built in the USA, will have an MSRP of US$999, an estimated street price of US$799, and will include a single or dual-unit 19” pro rack mount kit. The 710 Twin-Finity will ship worldwide in July 2008.
“The 710 Twin-Finity is a brand new UA design aimed at DAW users who want to upgrade their IO pre’s with our revolutionary “Tone-Blending” technology combining tone, character and affordability.” said Mike Barnes, VP of Marketing for Universal Audio. “Whether you want retro tubes or modern solid-state, the 710 Twin-Finity delivers both a real 300V tube section and transimpedance solid-state preamp path. Add to this the dual-gain feature and you can go from straight-wire-with-gain to creamy to crunchy, and handle DI duties for active/passive guitars/basses all in one quality box. ”
