API announces the 535-LA Line Amplifier as the newest addition to their 500 Series collection.

Modeled after API’s console-based 325 booster cards, the 535 can both amplify and attenuate incoming and outgoing signals for ultimate flexibility—all while providing API’s trademark API warmth and tone.

The 535 can be used anywhere signal levels need adjusting such as inputs from keyboards, audio playback devices, or from mic preamps or audio processing devices that do not have their own level control. It is meant to add warmth to digital signals such as DAW outputs, and features a LED clip indicator.

The 535-LA also includes a balanced input, a polarity switch, a 20dB pad for incoming signal attenuation and a three position toggle switch, which allows for different output gain levels from the transformer. This is designed to drive long balanced lines with low distortion just as the 325 booster card does. Output gain range is from 6dB to 45dB. The 535 utilizes the discrete 2510 and 2520 op amps along with API’s proprietary transformers to create the kind of sound that API users expect. Like all API products, the 535-LA features API’s original 5 year warranty.

The 535 was officially debuted at the AES 2015 conference in New York City, and the company is currently taking orders. Units will ship following the AES conference, and more information will be available on APIaudio.com once the unit debuts.
MSRP is $595.
