Wunder Audio Premiers Wunderbar Analog Console
Wunder Audio has announced the Wunderbar, a new analog console with a fully symmetrically balanced discrete summing bus system.
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 champions The Wunderbahn and has three Stereo Amplifier choices: Wunder, 1272, and the 312.
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 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.
