The Electrodyne CA 700 Limiter/Compressor is a high quality gain reduction and peak limiting device for use with speech or music inputs.The availability of limiting only, or limiting in combination with compression, makes the CA 700 Limiter/Compressor an extremely versatile unit. An exclusive innovation permits fast attack time and the333 availability of fast release time with low distortion. This circuit contains an automatic low-frequency gate that increases release time as needed to prevent the gain reduction from tracking a low-frequency signal, yet retaining the fast release time desired for most applications.

A three-position de-essing circuit provides for automatically reducing sibilance (hissing) in speech, when compressing, without any apparentroll-off of high-frequency response. The CA 700 Limiter/Compressor is designed for use in 600/150 ohm systems, has a self-contained 24-Vdc 150-ma power supply.

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.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

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.
