Product Description

Fifty years of electronic design and production experience, 40 of those years specializing in Class A discrete audio equipment, and 15 years of everyday practical experience by the Aurora Audio team manufacturing Class A discrete audio electronics used all around the globe, Geoff Tanner brings to you his highest achievement yet - the Aurora Audio Sidecar.

A magnificent piece for the audio professional, the Aurora Sidecar delivers 10 channels of pure Class A discrete fury complete with 4 band EQ and super thick, transformer coupled two bus output for the user. Each channel of the Aurora Sidecar features Aurora Audio’s renowned DI input, individual analog VU metering, direct channel output connectivity, bus assign switching with pan, and top of the line Penny+Giles (P&G) faders.

Each Aurora Sidecar console is built with a heavy gauge steel frame designed for years of use and abuse. Every channel features steel guide rails and heavy-duty thumbscrews, keeping all ten channels firmly in place creating an ideal connection between module and frame, making module insertion and removal easy.

While being built like a Centurion tank, the Aurora Sidecar also features hand crafted wood cheeks and a hand tooled padded leather armrest, providing the extra touch of prestige and craftsmanship that only Aurora Audio can provide.

The classic 4 Band EQ allows you to mold sound in ways you didn’t think were possible. The 24 transformers that are living inside the Aurora Sidecar are designed and built to Geoff’s specifications, giving you the clarity and punch that so many chase and now you will attain with ease. The faders and bus path were designed to not only keep your sound pure and intact, but once it hits those busses, you will be in a Class A discrete paradise that until now, only the select few have been to before.

The way Geoff designed the layout and the Aurora Audio team executes the build of the Aurora Sidecar makes basic maintenance a breeze. And while you should have a qualified technician help you do any serious work on the Aurora Sidecar, Aurora Audio offers the option of purchasing an extra channel module that can be swapped out easily so you never lose valuable studio time on your project.

Experience the ultimate with the Aurora Sidecar. The ultimate in construction. The ultimate in quality. The ultimate in reliability. The ultimate in SOUND.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
