The Dramastic Audio Obsidian :
Through the use of several proprietary methods the OBSIDIAN performs a range of tasks unheard of from the average SSL or SSL-esque unit. The fist difference the user will notice is that the audio sound field suffers no "shrinkage".
The highs stay brilliant and clear and the bottom will continue to thunder - especially with the internal High Pass Filter engaged on the unit’s detection circuit.
The second thing the user will notice is that the audio has a smooth, rich texture without any pumping or breathing when the "Auto" release time is employed.
From there, if the user decides that the audio is a little too smooth for their application, a simple click of the release switch to it's "Lo-Fi" setting will provide all the "in your face" aggression desired.
The clarity and performance of this unit is unparalleled by any unit based around a Voltage Controlled Amplifier (VCA) gain reduction cell. At first look it may suggest something from the past, but at first listen the user will understand the future of professional audio.
Transformer balanced inputs and outputs lend to the Obsidian's unique sound. The TXIO Enhanced option produces that "phat" classic analog sound making the OBSIDIAN an excellent way to add warmth and character to digital audio workstations.
