Dynaudio BM5A MKII Monitors
The newly redesigned BM5A MKII ($715) from Dynaudio Acoustics features a new 7-inch driver, high-resolution soft-dome tweeter and a dual 50W amp delivering 117dB SPL. Three integrated analog room filters allow for adjustment and compensation at low, midrange and high frequencies, and there is also a (60/80Hz) HPF and a +4/-10 sensitivity switch.

Yamaha MY8-SDI-ED Interface Card
Compatible with all Yamaha digital mixers and DME Series digital mixing engines, the MY8-SDI-ED ($3,000) offers from eight to 64 I/O channels, and provides input and output of HD-SDI-embedded audio signals. Featuring one HD/SD-SDI input, two HD/SD-SDI outputs (same signal) and one through-output (re-clocked), each MY8-SDI-ED card is able to de-embed up to two of the four audio groups (four channels per group for a total eight channels), multiplexed in an HD-SDI signal, and can embed two audio groups into an HD/SD-SDI signal for output.

UA Massive Passive EQ Plug-In
New for the UAD-2 platform is the Manley Massive Passive ($299) plug-in from Universal Audio. This virtual version of Manley’s popular 2-channel, 4-band equalizer uses design strengths from choice console EQs, as well as graphic, parametric and Pultec EQs, and can provide radical tonal shaping, delicate vocal shading or subtle mastering enhancement. It’s available as part of the new UAD Software Version 5.6 release, which also includes the EMT 140 Plate Reverb and the Precision Enhancer Hz plug-ins, as well as additional performance enhancements for all UAD-2 users on the Windows platform.

UA 4-710D Microphone Preamps
The 4-710D ($TBA) from Universal Audio offers four Twin-Finity mic preamps with true-bypass 1176-style compression. Like the original single-channel unit, the 4-710Ds each allow for continuously variable tone shifts between 100-percent tube and 100-percent solid-state amplification. The new unit also brings a newly designed 1176-style compression/soft-limiting circuit per channel, eight channels of 24-bit/192kHz A/D conversion, digital output via dual ADAT optical or AES/EBU DB-25, and balanced send/return inserts.
