The Universal Audio 4-710d is a boutique quality, 4-channel microphone/line preamplifier with unique tube and solid state tone-blending capabilities-perfect for a wide range of microphone and instrument sources. This versatile multichannel preamp offers selectable 1176-style compression circuitry on each channel, plus four additional line inputs feeding 8 channels of pristine analog-to-digital conversion. Building upon UA's classic analog design approach, combined with smart modern features, the 4-710d is the most flexible preamp in the UA lineup.
At the core of the 4-710d are four channels of tone-blending "Twin-Finity" mic preamps with true-bypass 1176-style compression, including specially tuned "fast" and "slow" settings. Each of the four mic preamp channels allows for continuously variable phase-aligned tone, between a 100% tube and 100% solid state signal path. Send and return jacks are available for external processing or signal access.
The eight analog inputs are digitized via ultra high-quality 24-bit A/D converters at selectable sample rates up to 192kHz. Digital output is available via dual ADAT "lightpipe" or AES/EBU DB-25 connectors, facilitating integration with most popular audio interfaces.

Comments about Universal Audio 4-710d 4-Channel Mic Preamp:
I have a modest home/warehouse studio.....using Protools 8 with a digi 003. For years I've been working with the digi003 preamps, Presonus digimaxFS preamps, while occasionally borrowing some great preamps (Grace, Universal Audio, API, etc). When I finally surmised that I could splurge for a good piece for my studio, I did some research and found the UA 4-710D. Frankly, I was attracted by the amount of pres (4) and all the features (A/D conversion, compression, tube/solid, multiple outs, etc). It was no brainer for me givin the bang for the buck. I expected to be impressed, but I did not know how much of an impact having this piece was going to have on the recording I was doing. I was in utter shock when I began to experience the results from using the UA. Everything I put through it sounded full, round, bigger, better, cleaner, and more musical. So far I've recorded acoustic guitar, keys, vocals, synth lines, electric beats, and bass through this amazing piece. I can't wait to record drums with it. Bass sounds INCREDIBLE just going direct through it. For the price, I could not be happier with this piece. I would recommend this piece to anyone, but especially to someone who is looking for their first quality set of preamps and is currently using the mediocre A/D conversion of their audio interface. If that is your current scenario....this thing will blow your socks off.
