Got it, and has been stored away in a rack case until now. I recently brought it out to check functionality. Everything works like a charm. I was going to build my own recording studio in 2005, but then that fell by the wayside, and never happened. The unit comes with detachable power cable and Owners manual.
Here is more information and specs from the web. The VT-737sp brings its magic touch to everything in your studio. Run your dullest, most sterile mic through the VT-737sp and you'll be amazed at how warm and sweet it sounds. This 2-rackspace combo brings a new standard to high-end audio, taking your sound to places you never thought possible and giving you precise creative control. The VT-737 will energize your recordings!
Avalon VT-737sp Channel Strip at a Glance. Class A preamp design with three input selections. Opto-compressor with minimum signal path. Sweepable EQ and hardwired bypass. The VT-737sp has three input selections: First, it features a higher-performance microphone input transformer with 48-volt phantom selection.
Second, the VT-737sp offers an instrument DI high-source input with a jack located on front panel. Finally, the VT-737sp includes a balanced line input with discrete high-level Class A circuitry.A high-gain switch boosts the overall gain of the preamplifier. The four high-quality tubes are configured as singled-ended anode coupled followers. A passive/variable highpass filter and hardwired relay bypass completes the VT-737sp's input signal conditioning. A phase reverse relay is available on all three inputs.
The VT-737sp's opto-compressor features a minimum signal path design with twin Class A vacuum tube triodes for gain matching. The optical attenuator acts as a simple passive level controller. Full dynamic control from soft compression to hard- knee limiting can be achieved with threshold, ratio-compression, attack and release controls plus gain reduction selection on the large VU meter. Special spectral control including de-ess is available with the dual sweep mid EQ to side-chain switch.
The VT-737sp's EQ section can be flipped pre or post the opto-compressor via a front-panel switch for alternate effects and tone shaping. Two VT-737sps can be linked via a rear panel link cable for stereo tracking.
The compressor bypass is a sealed silver relay for the most direct signal path. The VT-737sp equalizer utilizes 100% discrete, Class A-high-voltage transistors for optimum sonic performance. The high- and low-frequency bands provide the smooth characteristics of an all passive design, while the dual mid bands include variable frequency and switched Q-width selection.
The enhanced range of the VT-737sp's mid bands is extended into the high and low bands by the use of X10 frequency multipliers. The bypass switch incorporates a sealed silver relay for the most direct signal path.When the EQ to sidechain is engaged, the high-low EQ remains in the audio path for tone enhancement. The output level control provides a variable control of the overall signal path. The output amplifier utilizes another dual triode vacuum tube driving a 100% discrete, Class A, high-current, balanced and DC coupled low noise output amplifier.
Avalon VT-737sp Channel Strip Features. Vacuum tube and discrete design. Ideal for DAW and digital recording. Wide range of tube tone and control.
