Universal Audio Releases 710 Twin-Finity – Dual Tube & Solid State Preamp
Universal Audio has announced the 710 Twin-Finity, a new UA pre-amp design which combines both the warmth of UA tube design and solid-state in a 2U, half-rack, all-metal chassis.
The key to its sonic flexibility lies in its innovative circuit design, featuring a solid-state transimpedance input amp simultaneously driving separate, phase-aligned tube and solid-state gain stages, which are then summed to a single output. The mix between the 310 volt single-ended class-A triode tube stage and solid-state transimpedance stageis controlled via the “Blend Knob.”
Blending is continually variable between 100% tube and 100% solid-state offering a practically infinite range of unique pre-amp tones and the ability to easily dial-in your own signature sound.

Like all our other preamp designs, the 710 features dual gain-stage controls (Gain/Level) which can radically vary the amount of coloration and distortion by allowing you to crank up the input gain like a guitar amp. The VU meter features a unique “Drive” mode allowing you to see how hard you are driving the input stage.
