2-LA-2 Twin Leveler
The 2-LA-2 is not an exact component clone of the classic LA-2A, but a feature-enhanced stereo evolution of its ancestor that elegantly combines two channels of silky, tube-amplified, stereo matched optical gain reduction in one unit.
Like its ancestor, the 2-LA-2 works by applying the audio signal to an electro-luminescent light panel which shines on a photo-electric cell which in turn controls the gain. Designed by original UREI® engineer Dennis Fink, the 2-LA-2 retains the core “sonic signature” components that made the LA-2A the studio standard compressor in recording studios around the world.
The 2-LA-2 uses only the finest audiophile quality parts, from metal film resistors and WIMA capacitors to custom UA input and output transformers. From drum bus to master bus, vocals to vibraphones, the 2-LA-2 delivers the same authentic, smooth as silk gain reduction you’ve come to know and trust with the LA-2A, conveniently re-designed into a 2U two-channel package.
