Anaheim, CA (January 28, 2016)—After receiving numerous requests over the years for a rack-mounted version of its standalone all-tube DI unit, A-Designs launched REDDI V2, a dual-mono-channel, 19-inch, 2U model, at the NAMM Show.
Inspired by the sound of the Ampeg B-15 tube bass amp, the REDDI V2’s 6N1P-driven amplifier feeds signal directly into a custom output transformer by Cinemag, a key component to providing a harmonically rich tone. The REDDI V2's wide frequency range (20 Hz to 60 kHz) reportedly prevents in-band phase shift, and also prevents LF phase shift by maintaining a linear response extending below the audible bass range.
The REDDI V2's steel chassis sports two front-panel Neutrik XLR/1/4-inch combo input jacks, two balanced XLR outputs and two 1/4-inch Thru-puts, for sending signal to a bass amp. A 0-16dB Level control and red LED power indicator complete the front panel controls, while the back panel contains a heavy-duty toggle switch for ground lift, along with the IEC power outlet.
