2 channels of boutique British sound and EQ!
The S80 Channel Strip is a standalone classic-sounding reproduction of 2 Trident Series 80 input channels, with the addition of a 48V phantom power switch, and balanced inserts. The renowned "British EQ" sound derives from the very musical 4-band EQ section with 2 swept mids plus switchable hi and low shelves. Low cut, EQ bypass, mic and line inputs with individual volume controls. Each channel has direct balanced XLR outputs. Left and right XLR bus output via pan and mute controls, with 100mm faders. External power supply for extra low noise.
The S80 2 channel mic preamp makes the centerpiece of a powerful mobile studio when combined with a couple of good microphones and a quality recording unit. Cabinet finished in English ash.

Comments about Trident Audio S80 Producer Box Stereo Channel Strip:
I bought an S-80 last December. It sounds excellent and is supposed to be extremely close to the old 80B console. But quality is severely lacking. The original box I got, the Line In POTS (knobs) were intermittent. I sent it back. When it came back, the Line Ins worked but Mic Pre POTS now were intermittent. In 7 months I still haven't received the replacement channel I was promised. I gave them many chances to replace it. You can't beat the tone and great EQ, but I'm not sure if it's worth it, if it never works right?? I would probably buy a Daking instead. Shame, it's a great concept. I had originally bought an S40 and returned it for a bad mic pre knob!
