The Universal Audio 710 Twin-Finity mic pre/DI gives you the best of tube and solid-state tones - and even lets you blend them together! The 710 Twin-Finity houses a fully Class A FET mic pre, as well as a full tube pre. A Tone Blending knob lets you take the 710 from completely solid-state "bite" to a vintage-sounding tube circuit, allowing you to blend the two as well. Its dual gain-stage settings also let you crank up the gain and add plenty of coloration to your signal. UA does it again with the 710 Twin-Finity!
Universal Audio 710 Twin-Finity Tube/FET Microphone Preamp and DI at a Glance:
Tube or solid state: How about both?
The 710 Twin-Finity tube/solid state tone-blending mic pre/DI is the first preamp ever to offer phase-aligned blending of discrete tube and solid-state circuits. This preamp can be 100 percent tube 100 percent solid-state, or anything in-between! Use the input gain to drive 310 volt single-ended Class A triode tube stage into creamy saturation, then dial in a little transient bite from the solid-state transimpedance circuit, or vice versa, or any combination you can dream up.
Innovative circuit design
The key to the 710's sonic flexibility lies in its innovative circuit design, featuring a solid-state transimpedance input amp simultaneously driving separate, phase-aligned tube and solid-state gain stages, which are then summed to a single output. The mix between the 310 volt single-ended Class A triode tube stage and solid-state transimpedance stage is controlled via the "Blend Knob" labeled "". Blending is continually variable between 100 percent tube and 100 percent solid-state offering a practically infinite range of unique pre-amp tones and the ability to easily dial-in your own signature sound.
Classic UA controls
Like all UA preamp designs, the 710 features dual gain-stage controls (Gain/Level) which can radically vary the amount of coloration and distortion by allowing you to crank up the input gain like a guitar amp. The VU meter features a unique "Drive" mode allowing you to see how hard you are driving the input stage.
A premium DI
the discrete JFET DI input circuit can also easily handle any electric instrument. Guitar and bass players will especially appreciate the 710s ability to bring out the best of both active and passive pickups. The 710 Twin-Finity includes a 19" rack-kit for mounting one or two units
