From Our Research Team:
Have It Both Ways!It's a bit of an understatement to say that Universal Audio's 710 Twin-Finity mic pres are a big hit among many of today's top studio engineers. It takes a 310V single-ended Class A triode tube preamplifier and a completely separate Class A FET preamp circuit and lets you blend the two signals together straight from the source. From 100% tube to 100% FET, you can dial in the solid-state bite you love, the ultra-fast response you want, and the even-order harmonic tube warmth you need, all with a single Tone Blending knob.
What could possibly be better? Answer: the Universal Audio 4-710d. The 4-710d combines four 710 Twin-Finity circuits together into a single unit that costs less than three original 710s. But that's not all. While they were at it, Universal Audio also added a simple 1176-based compression section to each channel, limiters on all eight digital outputs, and AES/EBU and S/MUX digital output. Now, it's even easier and more cost effective than ever to add a set of these fantastic hybrid preamps to your studio.

Stunning Gear – HUGE quality boost
by Bill Troxler from Chincoteague Island, VABefore buying the UA 4-710d I had used an Avid Mbox Pro as the front end to my DAW. The Mbox is a very good unit. I produced a lot of wok on it and continue to think highly of the Mbox. However, t... read more [+]he UA 4-710d is stunningly better and more versatile. Several features make this unit extremely valuable: the ability to blend a transistor front end with a tube front end, a built-in compressor with selection for hard or soft knee, phase shifter, and a front-end low cut filter. Since the unit permits the user to select how much drive is applied to the front end, it’s possible to have extreme coloration of the sound or none at all. Within days of receiving the unit I ended up in a theater production. This required me to record a lot of voices. Not vocals, but actors and radio commercials. While this took me away from recording music, the task allowed me to really focus on the capabilities of the 4-710d and get comfortable with the nuances of this gear. I got up to speed on the unit with better chops much faster than if I had been working with full ensembles in recording. Nothing but praise for this unit. Everything about it is first class and professional. The price may give pause, but it shouldn’t. This is unit has FOUR preamps with many options for inputs. I nearly forgot to mention the converters in this unit. Absolutely great. The transparency and detail of my recordings have soared, thanks to the 4-710d. There is nothing currently on the market at this price point that does so much with such high, professional quality. close [-]

The compressors are program dependent and work well with minimal tweaking. It's a very smart box. Exceptionally well thought out. I'll buy another one for certain. close [-]

This is an awsome piece of equipment

This thing is amazing!
by Brian from san franciscoThis thing sounds good right away. Its difficult to make it sound bad. I also like it because I can immediately try tube or solid state tones without having to do any rewiring. I was also surprised at... read more [+] how good the compressors were. I wasn't expecting the compressors to be killer since I wasn't really paying for compressors, but they are really convenient to have, and sound really good. Also, I think this is my new favorite for DI guitar. close [-]

Simply the best

What blows me away are the routing options! UA has really outdone themselves, and if I could only own 1 piece of UA gear, this is it. close [-]
