MELPP - Stereo Electro-Optical Compressor/Limiter

Since the early 1990’s, the Manley ELOP® stereo electro-optical limiter has been a tracking hero effortlessly controlling dynamics on countless records around the globe, delivering the coveted classic, all-tube sound that Manley Labs is known for. So how to improve something this good?

The ELOP+ features a 3:1 compression ratio which opens up the doors to greater versatility, especially for 2-buss applications. It has been completely re-engineered from the ground-up, beginning with an amazing modern high voltage switching power supply purpose-designed for vacuum tube audio circuits. With careful reference to the sonic past, the vacuum tube line amplifier was deployed for highest performance and the White Follower output stage in this version all housed in a build-efficient chassis behind a drop-dead gorgeous precision-CNC-milled faceplate, all proudly made in America, of course. The Manley ELOP+ is everything the legendary ELOP was loved for, plus!
