Warm Audio WA-2A
The WA-2A boasts an all tube, completely discrete signal path with through-hole component topology. The WA-2A proudly features custom, large-core Cinemag input and output transformers, four premium vacuum tubes, and the legendary Kenetek opto-cell, considered by many to be the world’s finest.
No plug-in or other compressor type quite compares to the warm, forgiving, fluid qualities of this classic optical tube compressor. For decades, the renowned ‘2A type circuit has become the go-to device for seamlessly handling vocals, bass, and a wide variety of other instruments and program material in an effortlessly smooth way.
From the first stages of development we felt it essential to stay true to the classic design. The WA-2A uses the same four-tube design, dual transformers, and optical photo-cell as the original circuit.
The heart of any optical compressor is the opto-cell; a delicately crafted enclosure packed with photo-resistors and a luminescent panel. Though technologically archaic, the making and fine-tuning of these esoteric modules is something that will ‘make or break’ an optical compressor. For this, we turned to Kenetek, who are considered by many to make the world’s finest opto-cell.
