Product Description

The Wunder Audio Wunderbar is an analog console forged from inspiration, innovation and the bold desire to build the most impressive recording desk in the world. The result is a console so accomplished, it features the worlds first desk to come standard with three vintage stereo bus flavors, and employs a fully symmetrically balanced discrete summing bus system. This unprecedented blend of performance, technology and perfectly crafted build quality is simply the next standard in the pursuit of the perfect recording.

Infuse sophistication with extreme audio performance. Hand built by Wunder Audio's master technicians. The three stereo bus flavors are rich with thick discrete audio and transformer thickness, yielding three totally awesome sound-stages that can be combined or heard separately.

The Wunderbar: every detail refined viscerally.
Design your unique Wunderbar console. Customize your configuration to reflect your engineering style. Choose from a variety of console sizes and master section positions, moving fader automation, internal Patchbay and Apple 23" Cinema HD Display.

Exquisite Wood Package with your choice of 1 1/2" thick hand polished hardwood plinths (Walnut, Roasted Coffee, Oak) with inlayed logo enables the matching the wood choice to reflect your studios character. The addition of the top grain leather armrest reflects the attention to detail throughout.

Here Wunder Audio continues to cherish the proud tradition of handcrafted excellence, passed down over generations. Over a dozen specialists ply their trade in creating the Wunderbar; cable builders alongside machinist, electronic engineers alongside cabinetmakers. All are world-class craftspeople whose purpose is the realization of the personal vision of the individual Wunder Audio customer.

The Console
The console utilizes the PEQ2 Channel Amplifier delivering from 12 to 60 channels. A "Fully Balanced Bussing Scheme" is the heart of the Wunderbar, buffering the ground out of the equation. This results in significant increase in dynamic range while lowering noise substantially. There are transformer balanced direct outputs and inserts on all channels. The Stereo Buss has three Stereo Amplifier choices: Wunder, 1272, and 312.

The Routing Modules
The 1046 Routing modules are fully transformer balanced Class-A Discrete. Each channel has a monitor fader that is flip-able with the main channel fader. Also featured are six busses with illuminated switches, four auxes that are switchable pre or post, Pan Defeat, 48V phantom, and "Opto Silent" mute. If the console is short loaded, the Routing modules will act as a transformer-balanced inputs.

The Master Section
The Master Section includes a Control Room Monitor for monitoring six stereo sources, including busses. Mono, Dim, Mute, and Solo Clear are on large illuminated switches. Select from 3 sets of speakers or a headphone amp with separate volume control. The internal routing of sub groups to the stereo buss eliminates external patching, sparing monitor faders. The Eight-fader monitor section includes solo, pan, and placement into any of the busses. Talkback into any buss/aux is either latching, momentary, or remote. The master section has a large Illuminated master PFL, AFL Solo switch with Solo level. Other features include: P&G 100mm Conductive Plastic Faders, thick hardwood end-cheeks in an unlimited choice of hardwoods, and full leather armrest.

"All of the vintage API's, 1073's, Helios, and Calrec mic pre's I have collected have been made obsolete. The Wunder wins every shoot out for tracking and mixing. This console is akin to cheating, it sounds so extraordinary."
Stephan Jenkins, producer: Third Eye Blind; Vanessa Carlton; Run DMC

"Wow, I was pretty blown away. I couldn't tell if it was just quality of the tracks or the openness of the console but everything sounded great. It was effortless to mix. Sound and simplicity was stellar. Bravo."
Joe Chiccarelli

"I love it! It sounds like a three band Pultec. I love it that you can go up above 12k and it's such a smooth high end. Very transparent. Natural, never fake. It's got depth!"
Manny Marroquin

    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.

    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.
