Value For Money : Poor
(Originally written by rroland/translated from Audiofanzine FR)

Stereo or dual-mono Neve compressor. Note that several models are available: 33609, 33609J and JD.
All of them are solid-state. 2U rack housing. Heavy analog unit. The switches are wonderful, even the clacking sounds they make are a delight...

UTILIZATION

Very simple for anyone who has already used a compressor. Good user's manual.

SOUND QUALITY

The best from the best! It doesn't matter if its a voice, a bass, a kick or a snare, everything sounds right with this compressor. You can push it as far as you like before it breaks. I don't like the limiter that much, it isn't effective enough. It can help you rescue a recording but it'll be too much if you want to add a little punch to the whole mix. Otherwise it's an outstanding piece of gear. Expensive but it's worth every penny. I own several high-end compressors and this Neve is on the same level as a Manley Vari-Mu but with a totally different character.

OVERALL OPINION

High-quality unit. Very good, very expensive. It makes sense. It's a real delight for vocals connected to a Tubetech preamp.
