Optical compressors and leveling amplifiers have been around for over half a century and have become a favorite "weapon" of every audio engineer since their first appearance., when the need arises to control the levels of the musical signal without any harmonic distortion, that is, absolutely every time, when a person records music or processes already recorded music material.
Our model RSD RLA-2A follows the ideology and actual topology of the legendary Teletronix LA-2A - well known for its soft, natural and musical compression. The unique system of electro-optical attenuator, controlled by radio lamps, allows instantaneous reduction of amplification with careful care that music signals are not distorted.
Some typical applications include:
With RSD RLA-2A you can easily adjust the optical lamp compression for the desired vocal nature, bass, drums and any other music source.
With easy-to-use controls, you can easily achieve the already "iconic" warmth of sound and natural lamp limitation..
You can record all your tracks through the vintage circuitry of a device, made with meticulous attention to the finest details.
Use the ability to apply processing through the shortest possible signal path, provided by the manually executed point-to-point topology in electronics.
Enjoy working with the device, which is a true legend in the history of sound recording, but is made to the highest modern standards!
Our RSD RLA-2A model is designed and handmade, following the strict rules for high-end audio equipment - manual wiring point-to-point, the shortest possible signal path, top quality audio transformers, carefully selected lamps of the highest quality for soft and warm sound with the lowest distortions and absence of noise.
