Thermionic Culture Phoenix HG-15

Thermionic Culture presents the HG-15, the single channel version of the Phoenix Stereo Compressor. It features the same variable mu compression curve, except this one fulfils limiter duties at higher compression levels.

The HG-15’s gain has been specifically designed to interface well with valve and FET condenser types, although it will also work spectacularly with moving coil styles (like those from Audio Technica, Shute, and more).
