Barth Dynaset Dynamics processor?

What's up slutz,

Does anybody know anything about this piece of gear? Apparently the designer, Barth, used to work at Telefunken? Possibly more common in the EU? Throw me a bone - I got nothin'.

Thanks in adavance,

Yosh

I just got one of these and am LOVING it. A seriously nice piece of kit. I have only just tried it out today, so no in depth use, but what I am hearing is excellent...
Another keeper

Have you opened it up and checked out the insides? Just curious as to what's under the hood.... FET/VCA, transformers, chips/discrete?
I've been interested in this one for a while too.

ooh. hot VCAs.

mind if i asked how much you paid for it? i had a chance to buy one a little over a year ago (when this thread was first posted), but the seller wanted a pretty exorbitant amount.

How does it sound David? I saw one in Holland months ago , you bought that one? I've read somewhere the guy, Barth, was an ex Telefunken/Neumann ...? employee? This compressor is supposed to be a stereo version of the Barth 311 compressor.

Hi
Yes, it's the Dutch one.
I am reinstalling my studio, so I can't really comment in detail on the sound, but first impressions (on some drums and a synth) are VERY good. I really like what I am hearing. Very flexible and having 2 thresholds and ratios make it a very useful piece. I have some stuff like Tab U373a, LA Audio Classic comp, AD&R F700 and EMT 256II & 156 comps and it compliments these nicely and is certainly a serious piece of gear. Nicely put together too. I want to try this on the 2 buss...
I like
I think the price I paid was very silly. As I mentioned, I'd pay way more having used it now. The only other one I know of is a schmitronic and he wants €999.
It's 2 x U311. The manual and brochure show the 2 versions (rack like mine and vertical like the U311) and they are exactly the same..
I've attached some jpegs of the data sheet

Hi all! I am interested in buying one of these Dynasets. I don't see very often offered but there is one right now on eBay: who can take a look at the pics and tell what VCAs are there?
I have 2 202Cs (taken from an MCI console): do you think I could have them mouted in that Dynaset offered on eBay?
Thank you!

Here is the link to the eBay auction:
