Designed in 1969, the original Neve 2254 mono Limiter/Compressor unit quickly became a legend in its own right. Discreet, Class A design and transformer-coupled circuits used in the input, innovative bridge-driver design, side-chain and output stages ensured a totally unique sound. The original 2254 units are still sought after today by audio pioneers, decades after production stopped and they remain one of the “milestone” pieces of audio equipment.
And now here’s another milestone. The New Original. Introducing the Neve 2254R mono limiter/compressor. An innovative blend of the original late-1960’s design, which retains the unique sound and a new 1U 19” rack-mount form factor with improved features make the new 2254R a worthy successor to the original.
