Single channel compressor/limiter.

BAE Audio introduces the model 10DC compressor/limiter to compliment their line of Class A series outboard gear. The 10DC features a transformer coupled, all-discrete circuitry which is sonically familiar to the BAE Audio Class A line of gear, like the 1073, for the classic analog sound favorable in today's digital recording. Stepped switches for every control, a reverse analog meter, and the trademark Marconi knobs makes seeing what you're doing easy and repeatable. Independent circuitry for compressor and limiter - use one, or both, for greater control.

The 10DC also implements a true bypass and is stereo linkable.

The 10DC is nicely housed in a steel chassis using the same remote supply as other BAE Audio units.


  • Discrete Class A transformer-coupled circuit throughout
  • Fully independent Compressor and Limiter for separate audio dynamics control
  • Intuitive layout with illuminated meter showing gain reduction
  • High quality stepped Elma switches for dialing accuracy and repeatability
  • True bypass even when the unit is off
  • Same remote power supply as used on other 24VDC BAE units. One power supply can run two units

As close to the original as you can get, order yours today!
