Analog Hardware

Same As It Ever Was.

From the fast attack of the legendary 1176LN Limiting Amplifier, to the smooth tube-driven Teletronix® LA-2A electro-optical compressor, to the classic 610 Tube Mic Amplifier — Universal Audio analog equipment has defined the sound of innumerable records for six decades.

Each UA Reissue, tube or solid state, is hand-built in our Scotts Valley, Calif. headquarters. We use identical components and painstaking old-school manufacturing techniques, delivering undeniably warm, rich and inspiring sound — same as it ever was.
