At the 131st AES Convention, October 20-23, 2011 in New York City's Javits Center, British Audio Engineering (BAE) will debut its 10DC compressor/limiter (price to be announced at AES), a complement to the company's line of Class-A series outboard gear. This product launch will take place on Friday, October 21, at 11 a.m. in booth #246.
The Class-A 10DC features transformer coupled, all-discrete circuitry designed to achieve a classic analog sound. Stepped Elma switches for every control, a reverse analog meter, and the trademark Marconi knobs facilitate ease of use and repeatability. Independent circuitry for compressor and limiter allows use of one or both for greater control. Also featured is a true bypass that is stereo-linkable. The new BAE 10DC is handsomely housed in a steel chassis using the same remote supply as other BAE units.
"Our customers have been waiting three years for our Class-A compressor/limiter, a desirable complement to our line of 1073 and other mic pre's," says BAE's CEO Mark Loughman. "It took a while because of our search for the right parts and the solid hand-built manufacturing required."
