Summit Audio TLA-100A
The Summit Audio TLA-100A was regarded as a must-have compressor/limiter back in the 1980s, thanks in no small part to its set-and-forget status. The unit’s program dependent nature is made to work with the signal being fed into it, allowing users to simply set it and leave it alone without having to monitor it the entire time. The unit combines both solid state and tube technology, resulting in a warm sound that harkens back to a vintage era, while its quick attack times represent more of a modern flourish that also makes it easy to work with various instruments in pop music. The TLA-100A is hand-built and crafted in the USA. It also comes with a three-year limited warranty.
