    Well, after 1 year and 9 months on the waiting list, a shiny, new FEA Labs Opti-FET Compressor is on its way to my humble abode! I am losing my collective s$%t awaiting its arrival; my S.O. might comment I'm more excited for this arrival than that of my 2 daughters... she doesn't understand.

    I'm currently using an Empress Compressor and will do a side-by-side in the next few weeks. In the meantime, you can read all about both compressors at @bongomania most excellent site,
    blindrabbit and jnumme like this.
  2. Based upon my own personal experiences, you'll notice a pretty massive difference between the Empress and the OptiFet. Both are excellent comps though, but definitely have unique sounds (or lack thereof).
