Serviced by vintage king, tiptop shape...... This is god's tone, perfect order, cosmetically look like new. One of the landmark innovations in audio gear.Since its first appearance in 1969, the Neve 2254 Mono Limiter/Compressor has become a legend. With all-discrete Class A circuitry, transformer-coupled inputs, and many innovations - like its bridge-driver design - the 2254 created a totally unique sound that can only be described as'Neve'. The famous 2254 series of compressor limiters had its birth in the Neve 2253, which was a limiter designed for broadcast use in accordance with the Experimental and Development Department (EDD) of the Independent Broadcast Authority (IBA), a regulatory body set up in the UK in 1972. By adding a compression side chain to the original design, the 2254 was born. In its original configuration, the 2254 was used in both broadcast and recording consoles as built-in units, usually as part of the meter bridge.
Unlike many other compressors, the 2254 does not use a FET, opto-attenuator or VCA to create gain reduction, but employs a diode bridge for this purpose, which is biased by the compressor and the limiter. This creates about a 40dB loss at the attenuator and another 20dB at the gain make up stage, thus requiring about 60db of gain, which is accomplished by lowering the attenuation.
