The Universal Audio 4-710d combines four 710 Twin-Finity mic pres into a single unit with A/D conversion and costs less than three original 710s combined! But that's not all. The preamps take a Class A FET preamp circuit and a completely separate Class A triode tube preamp and give you the ability to blend the two signals together to taste. While they were at it, Universal Audio also added a simple 1176-based compression section to each channel. Now it's even easier and more cost effective than ever to add a set of these fantastic hybrid preamps to your studio.
Most sound engineers know about the Universal Audio 710 Twin-Finity mic preamp — an award-winning design that's standard equipment in top studios and live rigs worldwide. The UA 4-710d features four of these bad boys and comes in well under the price of four separate 710 units. Each channel also offers UA's newly designed 1176-style compression circuit. Not only do you get top-notch-sounding preamps, but you can dial in the exact amount of compression you need to make your sound source punch through the mix.
Each of the four mic preamp channels on the 4-710d allows for choosing between a 100% solid-state and 100% tube signal path, or any mix of the two that you desire, using a continuously variable control. Don't get stuck having to switch preamps every time you want a different sound, or worse yet, get stuck with only one sound to work with. Go from pristine to euphonic with Universal Audio's 4-710d blendable solid-state and tube signal paths.
As if the Universal Audio 4-710d doesn't do enough for your studio, the eight analog inputs are also digitized via 24-bit A/D converters up to 192kHz. Digital output is available via dual ADAT "lightpipe" or AES/EBU DB-25 connectors, giving you effortless compatibility with most popular audio interfaces. What's more, you can even input up to four other analog mic preamps through the 4-710d to access its superior A/D conversion.
