Thermionic Culture Phoenix SB - Standby Model – No Longer Available
The Thermionic Culture Phoenix Standby is virtually identical to the standard model but also includes a standby switch which is provided to extend valve and capacitor life. When in 'standby' the HT current through the valves is only 50% of the normal value. The zero level meter adjusters have now been front to the front panel to make calibration easier and to avoid having to take the unit out of the rack
The Phoenix Standby also includes the same side chain filter section from the Phoenix Mastering Compressor (MC). This side chain filter provides 75Hz & 150Hz, but more permutations are possible when the MC is used in stereo mode with the link switch engaged. So, this model has the same higher gain structure as the standard model, which means it can slam more than the Mastering model, which makes it more useful for individual tracking or mixing functions, but adds the extra versatility of having one of the best two bus compressors available for your stereo bus due to the chain filters.
