Universal Audio (http://www.uaudio.com), a manufacturer of professional audio recording products, has announced a new addition to its line of premium analog recording hardware: the 4-710D Four-Channel “Twin-finity” Mic Preamp & DI with Dynamics.

At the core of the 4-710D are four channels of tone-blending “Twin-finity” mic preamps with true-bypass 1176-style compression, according to the folks at Universal Audio. Based on the original 710 Twin-Finity preamp, each of the four mic preamp channels allows for continuously variable tone between 100% tube and 100% solid-state.

The 4-710D is expected to be released worldwide in Q3 2010; Pricing has yet to be announced.
