Langevin kit

Apologies for such a vague enquiry... has anyone here used and have an opinion on Langevin gear. I guess it's at least fairly cool if it's coming from Manley, but I don't know anyone with a piece in their rack..?

It's pretty cool stuff. Manley purchased the name some years ago. No original Langlavine circuit designs are actually used in the gear. Instead it's all solid state versions of the Manly catalogue. The Electro-Optical-Leveling-Amplifier is quite nice. The build quality is excellent, and pretty consistant from unit to unit. You don't get those awesome tube drivers from the Manley units, but all in all they sound great and are a really good buy for the $.Plus Evana rocks.

I've got the Langevin Dual Vocal Combo, and I like it a lot.

The pre's are really nice, fairly clean but not boring; they're particularly good on bass and vocals. They don't have a ton of gain, though, so they're not so great with ribbons on quieter sources.

The limiter and EQ are simple but very useful.

For ~$1500 USD I think it's a hell of a deal.
