There's no doubt that the original Fairchild 670 was and still is the "Big Daddy" of tube compressors. That's why people don't hesitate to pay over $30,000 for one if they can find it. Unfortunately, most of these units are getting very old and unreliable and don't sound as great as they once did. Well, what if you could buy a brand new one today...with a warranty...for substantially less!!! Can't be...well, guess again!!Our premium channel strip boasts frequency response from 10 Hz all the way up to 45 kHz and offers all of the features you’d want in a high-end device.Introducing the ADL 670, the perfect copy of the original Fairchild 670.
