The LA-610 defined the affordable, ultimate vintage tone channel strip. So how can UA improve on tonal perfection and what was already a hit product? Enter the sequel... LA-610 Mk II, a second-generation revamp of the original 2005 LA-610 design. While the preamp and compressor are identical to the original LA-610 that users have come to know and love, user-requested features such as true compressor bypass, larger metering, improved output signal, an auto-sensing power supply have been added bringing the end user an enhanced user experience. The LA-610 Mk II also features the highly popular black on black cosmetics of the LA-610 Signature Edition.

Features:
- Based on Legendary Bill Putnam 610 Tube Mic Pre and EQ Used on Countless Classic Recordings
- Authentic Teletronix LA-2A-style T4 Opto-Compressor
- Complete vintage channel-strip at groundbreaking price within project studio reach
- Mic Pre with Gain and Level controls, variable impedance switching, and Instrument
- DI for recording tone color

The 610 is a must have preamp. It shines for vocals and bass but is very usable on any source. The shelf EQ is very usable. 10k boost really adds sheen to vocals. 4.5k boost adds presence to bass. 70hz The low shelf can quickly remove mud from vocals. The compressor is OK. It is an optical style compressor that completely lacks the mojo of a real LA-2A but does do a fine job of holding a vocal or bass part in place with 1-3 dB of compression with no loss of tone or audible pumping. Minus one star in "features" for not being able to use the compressor and preamp separately. It would make this unit a lot cooler if there was a line in for just the compressor.
