Calrec Audio in Hebden Bridge, UK, announces that it will discontinue production of analog audio consoles as of November 30, 2010. Until then, the company is offering an opportunity to make final purchases of its S2, C2, and M3 analog consoles as well as modules and card assemblies.

Calrec states that it will continue to provide component spares and repair services for the S2, C2 and M3 consoles for a minimum of 10 years from shipment date. Should original components or parts become unavailable, Calrec will offer appropriate alternatives, including hardware/software solutions.

The company says that its decision to stop making analog consoles results from the broadcast market's general adoption of digital technology, which has both reduced demand for analog products and made dedicated analog components difficult to come by. Calrec had already stopped manufacturing its T-Series and Q2 analog consoles.

Calrec distributors will contact existing Calrec analog console customers to advise them of the details of the final-purchase offer and to assess their need for consoles, modules and cards. Customers can address questions to Jim Wilmer, Calrec's director of sales for the Americas, at 917/825-3728, jim.wilmer@calrec.com, or to the Calrec headquarters office at enquiries@calrec.com.
