Manley Nu Mu Stereo Limiter / Compressor

Hybrid Stereo Limiter/Compressor featuring "T-Bar" vacuum tube front end and discrete FET output stage.

The Manley Nu Mu Stereo Limiter / Compressor builds upon the legacy of the Variable Mu, combining the “T-Bar” vacuum tube front end used in the Variable Mu with a new discrete FET output stage. This marriage of tubes and solid-state electronics gives the Nu Mu a remarkable tonal character which will always make it a hit in the studio!

Featuring Manley’s new HIP function, the Nu Mu finesses dynamic control to bring up lower level details without knocking the life out of exciting transients. Smartly engineered to build efficiently and esthetically designed to elicit ravishing compliments from your clients, both visually and ergonomically, the Manley Nu Mu breaks new ground in performance and value, all proudly handbuilt in California, of course!

Manley “HIP” Control

The “HIP” control allows compression to happen at lower volumes (lower in the dynamic range spectrum), but leaves the louder dynamics alone while still compressing the overall signal. You get louder soft sections and original dynamics of the louder sections.

  • 4 x hand-matched 6BA6 vacuum tubes
  • Balanced XLR inputs & outputs
