Heritage Audio has announced availability of the BritStrip British-spec discrete Class-A console channel strip, a 19-inch rack device that features the same diode bridge compressor found in the European pro audio manufacturer’s multi-award-nominated Successor stereo bus compressor.

Introducing the Heritage Audio BritStrip — the culmination of 50 years of analog design in a single rack unit. Britstrip nails the sound of yesterday’s iconic recordings for today’s demanding engineers.

The BritStrip combines a real-deal 73 mic preamplifier, an expanded 73 equalizer, a discrete Class-A DI, and the infamous diode bridge compressor from the Heritage Audio Successor. The closest equivalent of the BritStrip would be chaining together a 73JR, 73EQJR and mono Successor — a $3000 value pack in itself, with added routing flexibility.

The BritStrip is available now via RAD Distribution in the US with a MAP of $2,499 USD, and elsewhere with an SSP of €2,499 EUR (including VAT).
