Manley ELOP+

Does anyone own both ELOP+ and the original UA LA 2a and would be soooo kind to share some A-B audio test comparing the two units?
I’m looking for an opto comp to use in tracking most, but can’t go for the original LA-2a. The Manley seems to be a nice piece, but I cannot find too much about it.

Hope in a kind answers!

I can't help with a direct comparison as I sold my LA-2a about five years ago. But I just purchased the Manley ELOP+ and think it's a great unit. I've only used it on vocals so far, but it puts them front and center without ever hearing the compression/limiting working...very smooth sounding, I'm very happy with my purchase.

Great. Thank you. Do you think it’s an useful comp? I mean.. From the only audio source I found about it, its work seems to shine on mid and high freq, so I don’t know if it can be a pro or a con, since I would like to use it on vox as bass. Even on drums I’m pretty curious too.. Would you share here your opinion once you’ll use it on drums, bass, mix bus or any applications?
Thank you so much!!

It’s a very flexible comp for general usage. I don’t agree with it being only for mids or highs frequency based sources. It works great on synth bass and bass guitar. It’s got a color, but is cleaner than an la-2a. Works nicely and is easy to use on voxs, acoustic guitar, overheads etc. It wouldn’t be my first choice on close drum mics or really aggressive source material.
