BAE Audio Announces Shipment of New 10DCF Compressor/Limiter

bae-audio-10dcf-1215BAE Audio announced that its new 10DCF Compressor is shipping. BAE says the new bypass filter delivers increased flexibility while recording low frequency ranged instruments, and engages at 50, 80, 160 and 300 Hz — for users who want to compress a broad frequency range while leaving lower frequencies uncompressed. The 10DCF units are also stereo linkable, making them usable for the output stage of a mixer.

Aside from its unmistakably authentic sound quality, the 10DCF also features a useful range of features on its front panel, including Elma stepped switches for each control, BAE Audio’s trademark Marconi knobs, and a gas-tank style analog meter. The combination of these elements provides users with accurate visual and tactile reference points as they adjust and shape their sounds. The metering on the 10DCF incorporates a sleek and simple design, with easy to read white lettering set against a black background in a rugged gas-tank style encasement.

The 10DCF, which is available now and priced at $2,100 (including power supply), is hand assembled in California using only premium grade analogue components. Pricing is set at $1,900 for a single unit without power supply, $2,100 with power supply and $4,000 for a pair with power supply. Here are the details.
