Letchworth, U.K. (November 18, 2008)–The Ebony A4 is the latest addition to TL Audio’s newest range, the Ebony Series, a range of black, discrete Class-A processors with an additional, optional tube stage.
The A4 is a 16:2 summing mixer, housed in a 2U unit, which features 16 balanced inputs on TRS jack and D-Sub connectors with individual pan controls for mono or stereo sources. All inputs are also switchable between +4 and -10 for greater flexibility.
The unit uses discrete Class-A circuitry throughout with no ICs used. The Ebony summer also can activate an optional tube stage on the master bus where users can dial in the exact amount of warmth wanted from a dedicated, dual-triode tube stage.
The addition of balanced insert points on the master bus section also means that one can patch in a stereo compressor/EQ (like the Ebony A2) and gain a professional mastering solution and back end to the system.
