    Both 610 preamp and LA-2A compressor are evergreen classics, and their sound signature doesn't need more explanations. The combination of the two is something extremely powerful and usable.
    One of my main concerns, when I was thinking to buy it, was the absence of independent I/O sections for preamp and compressor (like i.e. the 6176 channel strip). On the LA-610, you can bypass the compressor section, but you can't do the same with the preamp section. So, I was afraid to get a not completely flexible gear as the 6176 is.
    When I finally got it in my studio, I started to experiment with it not only as a front-end gear for recording (this was obviously the main purpose I bought it for), but also for tracking previously recorded tracks (using the Line level input and output). There, I discovered the LA-610 can effectively be used as a standalone compressor, when needed, with its own lovely personal sound, when keeping the input preamp gain low enough to give minimum sound coloration.
    Furthermore, I'm now used (for vocals especially) to record using very neutral preamps, and retracking afterwards through the LA-610. This way, I have a lot more flexibility, and I can fine-tune the LA-610 to make the tracks to sit perfectly in the mix without any other processing.
    Definitely, the LA-610 is a really complete gear, you can use it as a front end pre or pre+compressor, but also as a standalone compressor, and as a "plugin" for tracking.
    Really love it.

    Awesome Gear

    by M. Carter . 5 out of 5 stars

    When Im looking for a more gritty tone the LA-610 is my go to piece of gear, I also love that i can patch into its line level and use the optical compressor. The LA-610 was a great purchase.

    This box rocks!

    by M. Mercado . 5 out of 5 stars

    I own a busy recording studio in Chicago, Sonic Palace. We record mainly rock and rap. It's our go to pre and a God send for our studio.
    We have other top pres, but the LA-610 sounds the best and all the tools you need are right in front of you. You don't have to patch three separate units in to start recording, just plug in and tweak.
    We use it with a U87ai and Blueberry with fantastic results.
    Highly recommended, in fact we have and all have been very satisfied.

    Sounds Wonderful

    by L. Canham . 5 out of 5 stars

    i've found this to be a very nice preamp for pretty much anything really, best of all on vocals and drums, cranking the gain sounds great for drums but not so great on much else. It is very nice for clean vocal sounds.

    The EQ is great for adding a bit more thump or shine.

    The compressor is good for vocals and instruments such as guitar and bass, attack is too fast for drums in my opinion. It does a very good job on most things though and you can bypass the compressor and use another one if you want more punch out of drums.

    I make electronic music so generally everything is recorded down one track at a time and since having this every mono track i record goes through this first. I wouldn't mind another one so i can do stereo tracks.

    Great preamp

    by M. GUTARRA . 5 out of 5 stars

    I paid a lot, and I mean a lot of money for this without ever having heard it in person aside from youtube. Yes, it is great! Studio quality preamp, with a real tube sound if you should you wish for that (by adding gain). I would recommend this product for the home studio owner. The compressor is LA2A style, also very good.

    Very Pleased

    by T. Reis . 5 out of 5 stars

    This is a great piece of kit, and my prime channel strip in the studio. Everything sounds better, even cheap mikes. I use it to go into my apollo and then Logic. Can be transparent, or nicely colored - either way, I still get that wonderful analog "sound" that I'm always seeking!
    Brill on bass guitars.
    Great for electric guitar DI.

    Amaizing!!!!

    by A. Zaharchenko . 5 out of 5 stars

    I tried this device in my friend's home studio with Neumann M147 Tube on a male vocal... It was a week ago, and today, I ordered LA-610 MKII for my studio! For me, LA-610 is the best channel strip in price level up to 2500$!!

    Sonido Grande

    by S. CABRILES . 5 out of 5 stars

    El LA610MKII es verdaderamente un preamp de base tonal clara, con un color caliente excepcional, trabajo con Api 512c y Vintech 573, la combinación de estos 3 pres marcan la diferencia en una producción de gran embergadura.

    LA-610 Mk2..Makes my mic sound like a C800g!

    by D. Cooper . 5 out of 5 stars

    If you sing R&B and want that sound like Babyface, Charlie Wilson, Tyrese, Tank, New Edition, Drew Hill....you get the picture. Then you must get this unit!! I am a singer and always rented studio time to find the right sound...Never tried this until i purchased one used. I had to stop recording just to type this review because I was sooooo pleased and realized my search was over finally. Yes I have had some good pre amps. The 6176 which i loved but had to sale to release my first record...lol The Avalon 737 which the output kept going out on. Even though both units were great, Neither gave me that rich SonyC800g mic sound...yes it makes my STERLING AUDIO mike sound like a Sony C800g... and yes I have recorded on 1 of those.

    A must have for vocals

    by D. Batista . 5 out of 5 stars

    Depending on what Genre you do, it will always be personal preference. For me, Hip-Hop, R&B, and Classical vocals always go through my LA-610 MkII. This channel strip makes any vocal I put through it sound clean, discrete, warm and exceptionally smooth. It is BY FAR the easiest unit I have used to give me the best sound. A little bit of GR (Gain Reduction), drive that pre, put a 1 db+ on the 7k EQ section, and you got a rich sound on any mic.

    Must have in every studio.

    Great unit with classic UA SOund

    by M. Hamilton . 5 out of 5 stars

    There is nothing I don't like about the LA-610 except I only have one. It is great for Vocals,bass,guitars and keys. It is one of my favorite go-to analog devices. What's great about is it is it is easy to use! I love the mic pre and it's impedance switching ability for ribbon mics and instruments and the compressor limiter is awsesome! For the price you can't beat i! Oh! Did Imention Ilove the big vintage knobs!
