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!! Introducing the ADL 670 Stereo Tube Limiter, the perfect copy of the original Fairchild 670. After years of testing and research, Anthony DeMaria Labs has matched part for part the specs and sound of the original unit. Every detail has been scrutinized to perfection...no corners were cut. Yes...believe it or not, ADL has painstakingly sourced all the parts of this puzzle to offer a very limited run on these uncompromising, untouchable sonic giants!!! Many in the past have attempted to reproduce the sound of the classic Fairchild 670 but no one until now has taken it to the level ADL has with the ADL 670 compressor. With it's beautiful "military strength" chassis, stand alone PSU, 20 vacuum tubes and 14 transformers...it doesn't get fatter than this.
“I am currently in the middle of mixing an artist, who is very picky about his mixes. I’m mixing him in the box, as he likes tons of recalls. So yesterday I took one of my “in the box” mixes, ran it through the ADL 670, and sent it to him. This morning I got an email that started with the word “WOW!”. I hadn’t told him about the ADL, either. I’ve mixed many songs for this artist, and he has never said “WOW!” until this morning.
The ADL is a beast. It glues and colors without thumping or nasty artifacts. A little of it goes a long way. At first I was a bit nervous about this purchase, but after my initial reaction to it, and my client’s reaction to it, have been very encouraging.”
