The 2016 ELOP+ has been completely re-engineered from the ground-up. With careful reference to our sonic past, we have deployed our highest performance vacuum tube line amplifier and White Follower output stage in this new version.
How Do You Improve on a Classic?
Since the early 1990’s, the Manley ELOP® stereo electro-optical limiter has been a tracking hero effortlessly controlling dynamics on countless records around the globe, delivering the coveted classic, all-tube sound that Manley Labs is known for. So how do you improve on something this good?
Well, for starters, we have now added a 3:1 compression ratio feature which opens up the doors to greater versatility, especially for 2-buss applications. The 2016 ELOP+ has been completely re-engineered from the ground-up, beginning with our amazing modern high voltage switching power supply purpose-designed for our vacuum tube audio circuits. With careful reference to our sonic past, we have deployed our highest performance vacuum tube line amplifier and White Follower output stage in this new version all housed in a build-efficient chassis behind a drop-dead gorgeous precision-CNC-milled faceplate, all proudly made in America, of course. The new Manley ELOP+ is everything you love about our legendary ELOP, plus!
"It's not possible to listen to and use the Manley ELOP+ without BUYING ONE.
Just spent the day with this unit and posting files in our Clipalator... Talk about clean and easy control. Not just mono tracking sources either, on the mix buss it also RULES. Everything stays so open, and the release is so fast and smooth it doesn't really sound compressed, but trust me it is.
Great job, EveAnna... Incredible box at an even more incredible price!"
- Warren Dent, ZenPro Audio
"If you're looking for a limiter/compressor that can sweeten tracks and add some gentle smoothness, I suggest giving this unit a try. It was a sad day when I had to box up this unit and send it back to Manley Labs as it will be missed in my studio."
