Black Lion Audio, having hit the mark with the widely adored Seventeen compressor, has struck again, combining the Seventeen's F.E.T. circuitry with a worthy optical section in the B172A! This unit combines the two separate '76 and 2A circuits into a single unit that allows you to route the signal in any order you like to be able to provide this very useful compression technique.

  • 1176 and LA-2A style compression in a single 2U chassis
  • A/B or B/A signal routing on faceplate
  • Cinemag LA-2A input transformer
  • Chicago-wound 1176 and LA-2A output transformers
  • Custom designed Black Lion Audio T4B element, a.k.a. the "T4BLA"
  • High-grade signal path and power decoupling capacitors
  • Linkable
