MANLEY TAKES ELOP UP A NOTCH WITH NEW ELOP+ - AudioTechnology
Since its introduction in the early 1990s, the Manley ELOP optical limiter has been an essential tool has been utilised on countless recordings. Nearly a quarter of a century later, Manley Labs has created a new and improved ELOP — the ELOP+, now with integrated stereo compressor. The ELOP+ maintains the same controls and functionality as the original ELOP, while adding the versatility of an on-board stereo compressor.
Advancements in technology have enabled Manley Labs to create a much improved layout, giving the ELOP+ a new solid metal chassis and faceplate design. The output stage has been re-engineered to deliver an even more pristine signal path, and a new ultra-low impedance switched mode power supply is standard.
Manley Labs President and Co-Founder EveAnna Manley remarked, “The ELOP has always been a fantastic sounding limiter. With the ELOP+, we’ve truly stepped it up a notch, both in sonic quality and versatility. And what’s even better — thanks to our streamlined production and increased buying power, the cost of a new ELOP+ is lower than the original ELOP!”
The new ELOP+ will be available mid-January 2016, and will go for around $2500 US.
