The Best of Two Tonal Worlds in One Great Pre/DI from UA!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

It Sounds Amazing!
by Casey J. from CAI've owned this pre for a month now and i would like to start by saying this unit has a great overall warm sound to it wether you are 100% SS or 100% Tube. I like the construction of this unit as well... read more [+], everything just feels good. The SS side of this unit is ultra clear with a classic UA warmth to it. Now it may not have the biggest tube sound but thats a slight compromise for the blend-ability between SS and Tube. Now as far as being able to get that sweet harmonic distortion from your tube side its all there. Just play with the blend, input and output knobs and YOU WILL find that sweet spot you're looking for. To sum it up this in awesome mic pre with a ton of tonal variety and you wont be disappointed. close [-]

Awesome Affordable Pre!!!
by Jimmy J. from Dallas, TXThis thing is great. It will breathe new life into your recordings. The tube side has that nice smooth tubey sizzle, and sounds great when pushed into an overdriven sound. The solid state side is clea... read more [+]n and pristine, and tends to have deeper lows than the tube side. My magic spot is about 1:00 on the blend knob. It gives me the fullness of the solid state side and just the right amount of tube goodness for my taste. I record vocals and acoustic with an AT4047, and every other mic I put through this thing sounds great too. I also use it for line in guitar and bass. It excels at every task I throw at it. Get one, you won't be disappointed. close [-]

The Universal Audio 710 Twin-Finity is one great-sounding preamp! I recently did a shootout with it against several other high-end pres, and it stood out as being the most versatile in this price range. If you're looking for your first high-end preamp (or just want to add another great, multifaceted pre to your sonic arsenal), then you should definitely consider the UA 710. To Twin-Finity and beyond!
