Manley VOXBOX (Demo Deal)

All-tube channel strip
MFR# MVBX

Product Description

The Manley Labs VOXBOX is an all-tube channel strip that may well be your "last stop" voice processor, but it's also set to make the most out of virtually any source you throw its way. The VOXBOX shares its fully featured microphone preamplifier design with Manley's acclaimed Mono Microphone Preamplifier, offering a whole lot of headroom and Class A vacuum tube tone. What's more, the smooth compressor section is a perfect blend of Manley's best-selling Variable MU and the opto-design of their ELOP. All of these features, in addition to a flexible Pultec-style mid frequency equalizer, de-esser/limiter section, and stereo link function, make the VOXBOX a true sonic studio workhorse.

Features:

  • Manley Transformers with nickel laminations in mu-metal cases
  • 2K ohm MIC INPUT Z with high current 48V phantom power built-in
  • Hi-Z (100K) direct instrument Input
  • Line and insert inputs (balanced XLR & 1/4")
  • Preamp and EQ outputs LO-Z (50 ohm)
  • Transformer balanced XLR output
  • Transformerless unbalanced 1/4"outputs
  • Stereo Link for Compressor & De-esser/Limiter
  • Side chain monitor for De-Esser
  • Large illuminated Sifam meter with five readout modes

  • Maximum output: +31dBu

I've had my Voxbox for 4 years now... I always wanted one and got in a position to do it. It is absolute "taste" in a box. I can't tell you how many times people have complimented it AND come back for more. The VoxBox is actually 2 separate unites that you can link together with a switch OR (here comes the game changer) you can separate the two in to a Mic pre/comp and 2, a (mid-pultec style) eq and de-esser. So you can run two different sources in to either just the mic pre and a different source can utilize the eq section at the same time. I have a chain where I bypass the comp, come out of the mic pre and in to a Distressor and BACK to the voxbox eq. I just got a retro double wide so I'll try that too. Obviously any compressor can then slide in to the voxbox chain with a simple XLR or TRS. I have a UA 2-610, an Avalon 737, Shadow Hills Mono Gamma, Black Lion Audio 173 and Autuer mk ii. I still come back almost every time when I need to go big fast. A couple tips... The lowest left knob is only labeled as "input" this is an attenuater not a GAIN. Working out the "gain" knob in conjunction with the attenuater you are then able to tastefully hit the tubes hard or be as soft and clear as you can with it. We put everything in bypass on the unit and just use the mic pre almost daily when using DI's... DI sources are insane when run clean like this. I couldn't say enough about this unit. I could sell almost everything and just use this. It's also cool that if you really look at the VoxBox you can actually see the "V" and the "B"

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!

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.

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.
