Overview

The award-winning 710 Twin-Finity is a radically new UA mic preamp design that combines both the classic retro warmth of tubes with the transient bite of solid-state, all in a 2U, half-rack unit. The 710 was created specifically to add the tonal versatility and sonic inspiration missing from generic audio interface preamps. Tone blending is continually variable between 100% tube and 100% solid-state, offering a practically infinite range of unique preamp tones, plus the ability to easily dial-in your own signature sound. There are lots of sensibly priced solid-state and tube preamplifiers out there, but the 710 is the only one that offers the best of both worlds - as well as everything in-between - all in one box, and within reach of any serious project studio's budget.

The key to its sonic flexibility lies in its innovative circuit design, featuring a solid-state transimpedance input amp simultaneously driving separate, phase-aligned tube and solid-state gain stages, which are then summed to a single output. The mix between the 310 volt single-ended class-A triode tube stage and solid-state transimpedance stage is controlled via the "Blend Knob" labeled "ˆž". Blending is continually variable between 100% tube and 100% solid-state offering a practically infinite range of unique pre-amp tones and the ability to easily dial-in your own signature sound.

Like all our other preamp designs, the 710 features dual gain-stage controls (Gain/Level) which can radically vary the amount of coloration and distortion by allowing you to crank up the input gain like a guitar amp. The VU meter features a unique "Drive" mode allowing you to see how hard you are driving the input stage.

Versatility makes the 710 the perfect preamp partner for any mic collection. Plus, the discrete JFET DI input circuit can also easily handle any electric instrument. Guitar and bass players will especially appreciate the 710s ability to bring out the best of both active and passive pickups. The 710 Twin-Finity includes a 19" rack-kit for mounting one or two units.

      A Studio Essential

      By Jeremy

      Comments about Universal Audio 710 Twin-Finity Mic Pre & DI Box:

      Universal Audio has delivered once again. Alot of people ask me " What do I need to get a professional sound on vocal tracking?" Simply put, get a 710 pre. In combination with a decent mic and technique the 710 will deliver every time. The versitility is outstanding. You can be 100% SS or 100% tube or anywhere else in between. Some of my more expensive pre's dont have that capability. The 710 is also used in multi-million dollar facilities.....So ask yourself, if its good enough for the big dogs, why should'nt I get it? You will be hard pressed to find a reason not to get one.

      Greaaaat Sound!

      By Rasool Edwards

      from Tampa, Florida

      Comments about Universal Audio 710 Twin-Finity Mic Pre & DI Box:

      I started recording in my home studio a little over three years ago and I was never pleased with my vocals from the preamp from the interface. Since then i've been looking for that piece of equipment to make my vocals sound sweet like the professional recordings, I was alwasy skeptic of buying a preamp and it still not being what I needed being that the good ones were very expensive. But after giving in and purchasing the UA 710 I am verrrrrryyyyyy pleased and satisfied with my recordings now, I absolutely love love love this pre amp accompanied with the TLM 103 I get the best vocals ever. I would highly recommend this for anyone trying to get their vocals sounding like the professionals....trust me.

      incredible ! !

      By Daniel

      from california

      Comments about Universal Audio 710 Twin-Finity Mic Pre & DI Box:

      After years of using an mbox2 pro as my preamp I decided it was time to warm up the sound and get something that has tonal options. Preamps aren't cheap, so the ability to have one preamp and with a turn of a knob get different tones basically saves money. Less gear that does more tones is always great and the 710 does this fantastic. Warm warm warm, the ability to go from trans to tube is great and really does shine through. It's subtle sometimes but the difference is there, especially in the high end. For the money/tone/options this is the best preamp out there. The pros use this, and it's easy to hear why.

        I just picked up a 710 and hooked it up I was using another mic pre and it sounded alright but he second I hooked up the twin finite my life changed it went from searching for that clear professional sound to having it. The clarity and warmth the tube side has to offer is in matches the solid state has bit and a fullness I love this mix pre it's a game changer I own a studio and am using A tlm79 Neumann and it really lets the Neumann fly and gives that professional sound recording enthusiasts are looking for also the ability to still rack mount it is amazing I defiantly recommend this piece of gear for every studio

          This is a piece of equipment that I had worked with since about 2010 in a professional studio, but never had a chance to purchase for my own home studio until now. Let me start off by saying that I absolutely love this preamp! The ability to blend tones, as well as the simplicity and classic sound that is achievable is unmatched at this price range. My home use is mostly vocals, but it works equally as great for instrumentation. I am currently utilizing it with my Sterling Audio ST69 and the combination of tube sounds has taken my home studio recordings to the next level. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is considering taking that jump to a more professional sound!

          Great Pre!

          By BRANDON WILLOUGHBY

          from Maxton, NC

          Comments about Universal Audio 710 Twin-Finity Mic Pre & DI Box:

          This preamp is very clean in both solid state and tube. I bought it to match with my U87 for clean male vocals, and I love the match. I wouldn't say this pre is a character piece and the tube side is just slightly warmer than the solid state side. You can drive this pre into a clean musical distortion in either setting. If you are looking for a clean transparent pre I would go for it! If you need more mojo, you may want to look for elsewhere. I gave this unit four stars because it's not as solid as you'd hope for in this price range. Also, I wish there was a more noticeable difference between the solid state and the tube side. Ultimately, I'm pleased so far!
