Hardware Lindell Audio News

At Frankfurt Musik Messe 2012, booth 5,1 C50 we are launching our new range of 500 series modules! (yeah I know it's a crowded market :-)

As always we are putting our little twist on the products. In this case it's the cool 6X-500 transformer i/o mic preamp with 2-Band Pultec High & Low Filters,
7X-500 our 17X shrunken down to lunchbox size including the parallel compression and side chain filters. The PEX-500 is a Pultec equalizer
using the great 990 amplifier as gain makeup and transformer i/o's.

All modules are discrete built and uses the 990 amplifier block.

We are aiming at a massive killer retail price of $299 USD !

Looks super awesome Tobias!!!

Would have been awesome to have a boost option at 8khz though on the Pultec? For that price i guess i'll be a 500 user soon

Is the swedish price 2500:- inkl. moms circa?

You are a sick man, Lindell! Bringing 500 series modules completely built at DIY prices! Damn!

Never listen to opinions regarding gear. For every 50 nobodies on Gearslutz that say a piece of gear doesn't sound good enough to cut it, I know at least one somebody who is cutting it in NYC with that piece of gear.

just had an idea for your compressor, lindell.

having a small plug (eg small jack) on the front panel for stereo linking could be a nice thing. anyway i'm going to buy one, but maybe one day if you are going to build a mark II or so

If the build (they look great) and sound quality are anything like the 17x, you guys better be building these bad boys right now, because at a $299 price point they are literally gonna sell in droves. Good Job man! I think an 8 pack of EQ's is in order...For a couple o' Grand to boot!

Thanks for your inputs. But stereo linking is so 80's
Just kidding, I'll have that in mind for the MkII

The build quality is most def in par with the 17X. Sound quality is pretty freakin' sweet if you ask me

These certainly look dope. Love the feature set, and at that price point it'd be hard to go wrong. Does that June release mean internationally?

80s are so in nowadays you know

the idea popped up in my mind, using your 500 compressor in stereo mode, but then i wouldn't like to fiddle around inside the boxes. i remembered the roger schultz EQ, that has a small jack on the front for linking the solo bus. great idea

How do you manage to squeeze a 2000 Euro compressor into a 500 series rack for 300 Euros? Are you a magician?

What is missing in the 7X-500 compared to the 7X?
