3:1 Compression Ratio

The Manley ELOP+ makes use of 10:1 limiter and 3:1 compression ratio features to increase versatility and performance, especially for 2-buss applications. The ELOP+ has been completely re-engineered from the original ELOP with an upgraded high voltage switching power supply purpose-designed for use with Manley's vacuum tube audio circuits. THe ELOP+ also features a sidechain high-pass filter switchable between 100Hz and 200Hz - especially useful for limiting electronic and hip hop styles.

Sturdy and Efficient Construction

The The Manley ELOP+ features sturdy and efficient construction including a precision-CNC-milled faceplate and makes the most out of the custom, rack mountable chassis - designed to look great in any studio rack space. Manley even gives you the option to run each channel of the ELOP+ separately, or switch to stereo link mode.


"It's not possible to listen to and use the Manley ELOP+ without BUYING ONE.

Just spent the day with this unit and posting files in our Clipalator... Talk about clean and easy control. Not just mono tracking sources either, on the mix buss it also RULES. Everything stays so open, and the release is so fast and smooth it doesn't really sound compressed, but trust me it is.

Great job, EveAnna... Incredible box at an even more incredible price!"

Warren Dent, ZenPro Audio

"Manley's ELOP optical stereo limiter has been a mainstay tool in both recording and mastering studios everywhere; the sound of this all-tube dynamic processor has been heard on numerous popular recordings for over the last 25 years.

The improved ELOP+ now has an integrated stereo compressor with a 3:1 compression ratio but otherwise maintains the same controls and functionality as the original ELOP Limiter and its 10:1 ratio. Manley Labs dramatically improved the look of the ELOP+ with a new solid metal chassis and faceplate design. The unit uses an all-tube signal path using 5751 and 6922 dual triodes and both the input and output stages feature Manley's IRON® transformers.

Other features are: switchable stereo linking, side-chain high pass filter, giant well-lit VU meters, bypass switching and the Automute circuitry allows time for tube warm up before passing audio.

With a worldwide, 90 to 250-volt auto-sensing power supply, the new ELOP+ sells for 2,500 MSRP."
