Marquette Audio Labs Telefunken V672/W695 Package
Quick history on these modules. These were made after the V72 (tube) modules were not in production and Telefunken as well as most of the audio community started building solid state (discrete) amplifiers. They sonically sound similar to the tube version (v72) in the way they react to certain instuments etc... but sounds more "solid and punchy".
I have compared these to NEVE 1073 pres (in a console at Michael Beinhorn's studio in LA, CA) and a MAL NEVE 1272 pair... on vocals, Acoustic guitar , bass and a
Baritone Guitar (the latter two via TDI). The producer and engineer as well as myself at the shootout agree 3-0 the V672 sound equally good on the vocal and acoustic
guitar, the edge going to the Telefunken V672 because it was a bit more smooth and more musical. But when it came to the more dramatic sounds of a bass and a more
full range Baritone guitar that is where the difference was heard in 2 seconds of listening... the Telefunken V672 had lower, tighter and punchier low end and the highs
were smoother, more musical and much more open than the Neve 1272. I HIGHLY reccomend these modules and think they are the best deal (bang for your buck) in vintage

The Telefunken W695 EQ is very simple and basic. Old School Rock N Roll. But many time simple is better than complicated. The best feature of the W695 is the tone, solid state topology but warm and round. Peak boost of 0,2, 4, 6 and 8dB at 0.7, 1.0, 1.4, 2, 3 and 4 kHz, +/- 15dB at 10 kHz and +/- 15dB at 60 Hz. A Great feature of this package is that the Pre and EQ have seperate I/O (ins and outs) so you can use the EQ with the V672 or for another source.
Honorable Mention: Rhett Lawerence used a similar package for Kelly Clarkson's Vocals on "Misunderstood" as did Olle Romo working with "The Corrs" on their latest album.
