Thermionic Culture Phoenix SB - Standby Model – No Longer Available

Stereo tube compressor with side chain filters and standby switch
MFR# Phoenix

Product Description

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.

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.
