General Your general opinion of this product. This channel strip has transformed my recordings from thin and lifeless to thick and musical. I love being able to get a warm vocal using the 610 mic pre and slamming my bass track using the UA compressor in the same unit! Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This thing is solid! I've had zero problems. Definitely quality workmanship. Sound How is the tone? Sounds thick, full, rich, you name it. It's my go-to channel strip when I need some character on a track. Reliability How has it stood up over time? No problems

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? First unit received with dead compressor. Second one had needle gauge die within 20 hours of use. UA hordes blueprints so only THEY can fix it. That means WEEKS of downtime unless you have other compressors in hand. Also, one rep said they'd pay to have me ship it, from my issues, but then a second rep said "no" it's not their policy, tough luck. I don't like being lied to. If I can't trust your word, I can't trust your electronics expertise either if something fouls up. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Standalone compressor is great option. Preamp choices for various impedance. EQ choices is nice. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Old style knobs and simple switches is classy. I like the analogue needle (when it actually works) Sound How is the tone? It imparts it's own warmth to your tone. NOT transparent, but that's what I was looking for. Reliability How has it stood up over time? 2 units I've owned broke with few hours of use (the first with NO use) so I can honestly say MY experience has been awful. I would NOT use this equipment LIVE, nor would I NOT have a backup since it takes weeks to fix and only UA can fix it since they won't give out blueprints. General Your general opinion of this product. I love this product when it works. I hate this product when it breaks down. I don't like being lied to by Customer Service, and I don't like NOT being able to use a local technician for their hording the blueprints. Great for a Hobbyist of Studio that don't mind this. Horrible for a traveling musician.
amazing device

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? 100% SOLID USA BUILT, ANY MORE DEPENDABLE? Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Even though I give the PreAmp section a 10, The Compressor is a 11. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? The UA La-610MKll Is very easy to use, once you understand the input and output controls... Once you plug-in ANYTHING it's exciting to set the Pre-Amo! Sound How is the tone? The tone can be CLEAN or APPLE pie WARM... Now I understand the 3D Pre Sound. Reliability How has it stood up over time? General Your general opinion of this product. VERY WELL Built, SOUND, and the UA name live up to the hype. I wish I was wealthy to purchase 2-3 more!
