Spectra 1964 is a company recreating classic studio designs from the 1960s. Their new STX100 might look familiar if you’re into 500-series modules, but the new STX100 sports a new front panel layout to allow even those with extremely large hands to get to grips with the controls.

The preamp has all the faculties you might expect and also has detented knobs for easy recall and to minimise the likelihood of knocking a control by mistake.
