The H2 Audio 5011 is the EQ section from the 0011 in a 500 series package. Featuring an electronically balanced input and transformer balanced output with amp circuit, and the exact same EQ circuit as the 0011.
The Helios 0011 "Type 69" channel module was the heart one of the most legendary recording desks of the late 60's British Invasion. Helios is one of the first console manufacturers that mass-produced mixing desks for the recording studio industry in England and eventually worldwide. The list of artists whose music passed through a Helios desk between 1964 to 1980 is staggering, and the sonic characteristics are synonymous with a whole generation of music. H2 Audio has painstakingly recreated the original Helios 0011, adhering to the original design and sound. In doing so, H2 Audio has created the most sonically accurate version of this recording industry legend to date.
Helios fans rejoice! After a sneak preview at the 2020 NAMM Show, the pro audio world is now getting its formal introduction to the new H2 Audio line. Led by Grammy-award winning producer/Acme Audio owner Al Sutton and Q2 Audio's Tim Mead, H2 Audio is reviving many of Dick Swettenham's classic console designs for the 500 Series format.
For those unfamiliar with Helios, Dick Swettenham was a maintenance engineer at EMI Abbey Road Studios in the early 1950s before moving onto Olympic Sound Studios in 1958. The engineer would start the Helios brand in 1969 and go on to create the "Type 69" console, a desk used by everyone from Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones to Bob Marley and Black Sabbath.

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.
Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.
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!
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
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.
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.
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.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
