However, they will no longer build NEW 8900 or 2030's. The compressors are too complicated. In the case of the 2030, they built their own VCA from the ground up. (in the older 8900's it's Valley People or DBX VCAs) Not sure those parts are even available anymore. So the only way to get one is find them used. And they very rarely come up for sale .... for a good reason

That said. the GML compression is the most flexible I've ever used. At ANY price point.

The closest thing I've found is Solera.... still doesn't have the depth/grab/integrity of the GML hardware
