    The TL Audio 5052 Stereo Valve Processor is the latest addition to the best-selling Ivory 2 series. The 5052 provides everything you would expect from a high quality ?channel strip?product, and then doubles it - making it the ideal system front end and the perfect stereo mixdown and mastering device. While most channel strip products provide a single mono channel made up of preamp, dynamics and EQ stages, the 5052 provides two channels of each with independent stereo linking of the compressor, EQ and limiter sections. Recording a mono or stereo source to multitrack through the 5052 becomes simplicity itself, yet when it comes to mixdown the 5052 comes into its own by offering full stereo linked EQ and dynamics - allowing unparalleled processing of the stereo bus while mixing.

    Couple this supreme flexibility with TL Audio's class-leading valve circuit design, and the 5052 represents the ultimate tracking and mixing tool for today's digital

    The 5052 utilises six triode valve stages shared between the two channels, run from a high quality internal 150V stabilised DC supply.
