The TK Audio BC2-ME is a revised mastering version of the popular BC1. It features stepped controls, switchable output-stage and blend control.
TK Audio's vision is to make products that will satisfy our customers needs. During years of success with our BC1 we got a lot of requests of customize units with stepped controls, more suitable for mastering. Therefore we now launch BC2-ME, a unit perfect for mastering. Except for the stepped controls we also added some nice features like illuminated switches, switchable output-stage between electronically-balanced or transformer balanced class-A.
BC2-ME uses the same basic sound path as the BC1, plus the extra features. The class-A mode offers a more vintage tone, like fat, punchy low-end response with more low mid character. The output section is the same as we use in the DP1mk3. BC2-ME also has a switch that adds extra "even" harmonics to the compressed signal. The blend control offers 21 steps from straight to compressed signal.
All rotary controls stepped.
