Vintage and Craft

Hand Crafted Lab. Solution S2Published on 07/01/14 at 02:41
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Leveler or an optical compressor. This is a model lamps. It can work in dual mono or stereo. Note that the design is very "vintage": there is no printed circuit board (except for the power supply). It is still "wire to wire", which is certainly very "retro".

UTILIZATION

There is no manual. Must be ordered and paid in advance, and your machine is mounted by hand to order, with the ability to add options. For use, any known that the operation of a compressor quickly find its marks. There are several possibilities: Type I or II, or Class A cascode driver, high pass filter or not, etc.. Although the idea seems close on a stereo LA-2A, it is not the same in terms of sound. There are more...…

UTILIZATION

There is no manual. Must be ordered and paid in advance, and your machine is mounted by hand to order, with the ability to add options. For use, any known that the operation of a compressor quickly find its marks. There are several possibilities: Type I or II, or Class A cascode driver, high pass filter or not, etc.. Although the idea seems close on a stereo LA-2A, it is not the same in terms of sound. There are more opportunities here and a wider sound palette.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality is amazing. Especially when you know the price. The creature plays in the big leagues, and if it were written "Manley" on the hood, the price would probably tripled. The sound is amazing: this may sound strong, with a very natural compression, and gain a real quality: binder, space, depth. really amazing.
For cons, the VU are real junk. They are too nervous and it took me to buy more (they cost nothing) to find two that react in the same way. We must therefore rely more ears than eyes, which is not a bad thing.

OVERALL OPINION

Contact (in English) is excellent. At least before the sale. After it's slower if you have a concern. The machine sounds really good, but the service is non-existent. on the other hand, if you know an electronics poorly trained, the machine is simple and easy to maintain design. A Afien ordered another machine at the same time as HCL me, but hers was built in Thailand (which earned him big import fees). Seen from the solution S déconnaient big and assistance was complicated to obtain (a repairman in my area settled the issue for 50 €).
If the noise level this machine is pretty fantastic, must perhaps ask the command to get better VU meters ... And someone to provide the service in case of problems. Also ask where the machine will be shipped, not having to pay import supplements.
You can safely contact me for information.
