Millennia TCL-2 Compressor

The Millennia TCL-2 Compressor is a truly unique stereo optical compressor/limiter with unprecedented sonic purity & integrity, featuring two possible paths to compression perfection with Millennia famous Twin Topology.

Select between an all-triode 300 Volt vacuum tube signal path or an all-discrete J-FET solid state signal path. Both topologies are entirely transformerless, high voltage, pure Class A. And true to Millennia's form, the TCL-2 TWIN COM is a minimalist design: only one active stage in the audio path. Choose the TCL-2 TWIN COM when you need lots of pure compression, but also need lots of flexibility when you have to get it right, now!

    Transparent compressor

    This is a superior compressor with selectable FET/tube stages. Amazing clean and transparent in either mode.You can really put a lot of squeeze on the source before getting even a hint that compression is being used. This is not for "color" It's a surgical processor. If you're looking for "clean" this is your go-to.
