Thermionic Culture Phoenix Standby
Thermionic Culture have released a new version of the Phoenix soft knee stereo valve compressor, the Phoenix Standby.
According to TC, this is the same classic design as the previous Phoenix S/C ( side chain ) model incorporating point to point wiring, Mullard and Siemens valves and custom Sowter transformers.
New features include a standby switch which is provided to extend valve and capacitor life. When in 'standby' the HT current through the valves is only 50% of the normal value, the company says. The zero level meter adjusters have now been front to the front panel to make calibration easier and to avoid having to take the unit out of the rack.
The unit is shipping now.
