AES08: Twin-Finity And Beyond


At the AES Convention in Amsterdam, Universal Audio has announced the 710 Twin-Finity Single Channel, Tube & Solid-State, Tone-Blending Preamp. This radically new UA preamp design with dual signal paths is centered around the innovative phase-aligned “Tone-Blending� knob which is continually variable from 100% Tube to 100% Solid-State offering easy access to a myriad of unique pre-amp tones. The UA 710 Twin-Finity is designed and built in the USA and will include a single or dual-unit 19� pro rack mount kit.
Mike Barnes, VP of Marketing for Universal Audio, told us, “The 710 Twin-Finity is a brand new UA design aimed at DAW users who want to upgrade their IO pre’s with our revolutionary “Tone-Blending� technology combining tone, character and affordability. Whether you want retro tubes or modern solid-state, the 710 Twin-Finity delivers both a real 300V tube section and transimpedance solid-state preamp path. Add to this the dual-gain feature and you can go from straight-wire-with-gain to creamy to crunchy, and handle DI duties for active/passive guitars/basses all in one quality box. �
