Summit Audio TLA-50 Tube Leveling Amplifier


Summit's Affordable Tube Compressor/Limiter.

What we think:

A truly spectacular value for tube budget compression. This unit is the perfect little single channel compressor for those looking to add a nice subtle tube compression to their tracks, and don't want to drop the $2K+ per channel for a box like the LA2A. The sound quality and fidelity of the box is a pleasant surprise... totally impressive little compressor for the money, and definitely on our recommended buy list.

Manufacturer Description:

Thirty years of passion and experience in a compact design.


Ease of operation

Maximum flexibility

It's a family affair
