Klark Teknik KT-2A

My 10 cc here.

I have a pair of KT2A and they are great. I have them since premiere in 2018 and there are no technical problems with them either. Meanwhile my WA76 and EQP-WA both experience problems with attenuators and broken switches.

Regarding the sound: I'd call it precise, high-fidelity, analytical. Even high input level does not affect the balance in the frequency spectrum. I have no idea how originial LA2A sonds but who cares these days.

I can believe that LA2A if by some miracle it is in a good condition may sound better, whatever it means. But I do not understand guys telling that their "UA plugins sound better than generic stuff like Klark Technic or Warm Audio". With all respect for UA plugins which I love - they don't; it's not technically possible. Besidees any decent hardware compressor will sound better than any plugin. It does not mean that I do't use vst compressors. They are "sufficient" in some areas but not in all.

I've just ordered a Kenetek T4-B for my KT-2a. Looking forward to trying it out with the Harma Retro tubes soon

I'm really interested in snagging a pair of these to have at home for when I don't feel like driving into the studio to run stuff through our LA-2A, but they haven't been available on Thomann for a few weeks. Does anyone know if they have been discontinued or if they are just out of stock?

aSalesman in the shop, has said that these will be available again when all other classics are released. (Behringer jup8 ) something in The year 2032. You cabbuy 2hand. LotS of people don’t like it. (Less exponentieel vs negatieve exponentieel sound ) Before the run out i did buy 2 more. Now I have 4 x : og 47 og v72 kl 1A kl 76 kl 2a ..unbelievable.

I just put in an order for a KT2A and it went through....then I got a call and the sales rep said it was the last one in stock.
Didnt say anything about being discontinued, I think they are slow coming and fast selling.

I just looked at the Klark Teknik web site and noticed that they have KT-2A and 2A-KT models. They look the same except for the letters below the meter. Does anyone know if they made some minor change to the design or something?

Hi Mattias, I think it´s the same product, the one placed below it´s just there because is in the "Best seller" section.

Best regards.

Well spotted Mattias - I'm assuming it's the same product but they've maybe reconfigured the naming scheme to align with the EQP-KT and the 76-KT. As an owner of all 3 of these products who has just been re-labelling my patchbays I'd found it slightly confusing that my (older) unit was named a KT-2A whilst the others were *-KTs. My partner in crime who was helping me and isn't familiar with the original models also remarked that it seemed somewhat odd.

Guys, can I just switch out the 12ax7? I have a plethora of NOS RCA and others. Just wanna see if it might change things the way changing out V1 in a tube amp sometimes really makes a difference

From what I’ve seen they are just behind on supply and demand. They sold much more than anticipated and also COVID hit and then the buy out from Behringer all have complicated accessibility. They will eventually return keep your eye out.
