Millennia TCL-2 Stereo Compressor/Limiter

Stereo compressor/limiter with tube and solid-state signal paths

Product Description

When you want gentle, clear compression, the Millennia TCL-2 delivers. Featuring Millennia's Twin Topology, the TCL-2 lets you choose between clean solid-state compression or subtle tube-tinged color, without loss of detail and clarity. If you're looking for an aggressive, heavy-handed compression monster, look elsewhere. The TCL-2 shines in its subtlety, seamlessly able to gently push a vocal up front or wash away the digital-ness of a stack of tracks thanks to its bath of analog cohesiveness.


  • Twin Topology gives you more options
  • Meticulously matched optos for stereo work
  • Millennia gear is made for detail

Twin Topology gives you more options
Millennia outfitted the TCL-2 with its Twin Topology, so you can decide between solid-state and tube compression at the push of a button. Whether you wind up using the discrete J-FET signal path or all-triode 300V vacuum tube signal path, the TCL-2 gives you its signature brand of subtle, gentle squeeze. Even in bypass tube mode you can add that "something extra" to your tracks. It's one reason hip hop engineers have been increasingly gravitating toward the TCL-2, for its ability to take out the "digital" feeling from your stacks of in-the-box tracks and gel it all together in a way only analog gear can.

Meticulously matched optos for stereo work
To give you an ideal platform for stereo work, Millennia carefully matches each opto cell to give you a stereo-ready TCL-2. Beware of opto-based compressors that don't receive this level of scrutiny and care, as no two opto cells picked at ramdom are alike.

Millennia gear is made for detail
Founder and chief designer John LaGrou takes the same approach to his exceptional audio gear as he does to the wine he cultivates in the California countryside. Detail matters, it's everything. Whether in a vintage of wine or your multi-track mix, taken together, those details can make a major difference in the end result. Millennia equipment celebrates those fine, subtle points, bringing you gear that's built with uncompromising quality to deliver purity in music.

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.
Phil T.
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.

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.
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.
