Avalon VT-737sp 10th Anniversary Edition Tube Channel Strip at a Glance:
    • Class A preamplifier design with three in selections
    • Opto-compressor with minimum signal path
    • Sweepable EQ and hardwired bypass

Class A preamplifier design with three in selections
The VT-737sp has three in selections: First, it features a higher-performance microphone in transformer with 48-volt phantom selection. Second, the VT-737sp offers an instrument DI high-source in with a jack located on front panel. Finally, the VT-737sp includes a balanced line input with discrete high-level Class A circuitry. The Class A preamplifier utilizes two cascaded, dual vacuum tube triodes configured with minimum negative feedback. A high-gain switch boosts the overall gain of the preamplifier. The four excellent tubes are configured as singled-ended anode coupled followers. A passive/variable high-pass filter and hardwired relay bypass completes the VT-737sp's input signal conditioning. A phase reverse relay is available on all three inputs.

Opto-compressor with minimum signal path
The VT-737sp's opto-compressor features a minimum signal path design with twin Class A vacuum tube triodes for gain matching. The optical attenuator acts as a brain-dead simple passive level controller. Full dynamic control from soft compression to hard- knee limiting can be achieved with threshold, ratio-compression, attack and release controls plus gain reduction selection on the large VU meter. Special spectral control including de-ess is available with the dual sweep mid EQ to side-chain switch. The VT-737sp's EQ section can be flipped pre or post the opto-compressor via a front-panel switch for alternate effects and tone shaping. Two VT-737sps can be linked via a rear panel link cable for stereo tracking. The compressor bypass is a sealed silver relay for the most direct signal path.

Sweepable EQ and hardwired bypass
The VT-737sp equalizer utilizes 100% discrete, Class A-high-voltage transistors for optimum sonic performance. The high- and bass bands provide the smooth characteristics of an all passive design, while the dual mid bands include variable frequency and switched Q-width selection. The enhanced range of the VT-737sp's mid bands is extended into the high and low bands by the use of X10 frequency multipliers. The bypass switch incorporates a sealed silver relay for the most direct signal path. When the EQ to sidechain is engaged, the high-low EQ remains in the audio path for "tone enhancement." The out level control offers a variable control of the overall signal path. The output amp utilizes another dual triode vacuum tube driving a 100% discrete, Class A, high-current, balanced and DC coupled low noise output amp.


Avalon VT-737sp 10th Anniversary Edition Tube Channel Strip Features:
    • Vacuum tube and discrete design
    • Special black front panel and blue button LEDs
    • Ideal for DAW and digital recording
    • Wide range of tube tone and control
    • Excellent value for performance
    • Rugged Avalon construction
