Universal Audio 710 Twin-Finity

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by insomniac2295, Sep 6, 2008.

  1. I'd like to hear this in conjunction with a power amp and a nice cab :] Just saw it today in my Sweet Water catalog. Can I say GAS?


    It has a tube AND solid state design PLUS blend control for the two!

    That does look nice! The only downside I see (other than the price and size ;) ) is that like most mic preamps it only has one output, so you can't use it as both a DI and a preamp simultaneously without using an external balanced line splitter. Also if you like the basic concept, check out the Summit TD-100, which also features blendable solid-state and tube stages, it's half the size, it's less expensive, and it has two parallel outputs so it can be used as a pre and a DI simultaneously. :) But don't get me wrong, that UA unit does look sweet and I'd love to try one sometime.

    really? blendable? more like a *pre-blended* mix. ;)

    Yeah the Summit's blending is weird; the solid-state channel is 'on' 100% all the time, and the tube channel is then blended on top of that by whatever amount you want. So it's not as controllable as the UA there, but since you can dial out the tube channel completely, or dial in as much as you want, it's not as "pre-set" as you seem to be saying.

    :D:DSame concept for the Presonus Tubepre, although I think the quality might be better:D

    The TD100 doesn't have a solid state pre and isn't blendable.
    You probably mean 2BA-221 ?

    The way I described it above was the way it was described to me by one of the people at Summit when I asked them for an explanation of the gain control on the TD-100. Either they misunderstood me and thought I was asking about the 2BA, or I misunderstood them, or the description is correct.

    Edit: to be clear, it's entirely possible that I did misunderstand them- I'm only 'rebutting' here to explain why I posted what I did, not to insist that I was right. ;)

    I realize this is an ancient thread...
    ...I've been using one of these with a PLX3102 for some time now and I love it. The lack of 1/4" output is inconvenient worth working around for me.
