<p>Summit Audio’s first product was the TLA-100, created by Michael Papp and Crane Song founder Dave Hill. Though it shares some control characteristics with vintage equipment, it was designed with unique circuitry and methods of leveling/compression. This union between classic function and modern day methods and technology has been the cornerstone of all Summit Audio designs. The TLA-100 is currently the longest standing continuously produced piece of outboard gear in our industry. Chances are excellent that if you purchased one then, it’s worth more now than when you bought it… Through strong relationships - many of which last to this day - Summit Audio became a well-established and respected manufacturer of top shelf audio products, from industry standards like the DCL-200 dual compressor/limiter, TPA-200B two-channel mic/instrument preamplifier and EQP-200B stereo passive tube EQ to brand new and exciting products like the Everest, Summit Audio’s ultimate channel strip. The half rack series, originally designed to make Summit gear available at a lower price point, delivers Summit ‘s renowned sound and quality so well that they too have become staples in studios and live rigs of musicians and audio pros around the world.
