Radial Launches New Brand, Forest Audio

Radial Engineering announces its launch of Forest Audio, a new division of Radial Engineering that will focus on top-end audio devices for studio and live touring applications.

According to Radial President Peter Janis: “Back in 1978, we started our first company and it was called Forest Electronics, in homage to William DeForest, the inventor of the vacuum tube. Forest will include a variety of professional audio devices that will cater specifically to the professional musician, the engineer and producer.”

Forest Audio F15 instrument preamp

Forest Audio’s first product is the Forest F15 instrument preamplifier, a Class-A device with a unique feed-forward design that is said to eliminate the use of circuit-stabilizing negative feedback in the DI section for “unmatched sonic clarity.” The F15 will also offer remote phantom powering for instrument microphones, Drag Control load correction, built-in re-amping capabilities, selectable inputs for quick instrument changes, and a line-level output to allow the F15 to drive a power amp.

“We plan to launch two more Forest products within the next 90 days, including the highly anticipated Q6 counter-coil EQ, and the F11 Quad-Tube preamp,” Janis adds.
