Created by UREI and Universal Audio engineer Dennis Fink, the Fink Analog Audio CS2-FA Tube Dual Channel Strip makes use of single-ended Class A dual-triode tube gain blocks to provide preamp, EQ, and more. This two-rackspace unit features two recording channel strips, each with a tube console mic pre, a FET limiter that is very similar to the UA 1176LN, and a passive EQ. The CS2-FA also features an all-tube audio path that has five tubes for each channel.
The mic preamp of the CS2-FA uses one ECC81 and two ECC83 tubes to power its passive EQ. It also features a DI input that gives users the option of connecting the jack straight to the mic preamps first ECC83 section. This is very similar to a Fender guitar amp. Overall, the CS2-FA gives you 60 decibels on the rear panel and 46 on the front DI. Read more
