Phoenix Audio

Phoenix Audio is a California-based company building boutique-grade professional audio equipment. Phoenix Audio design and manufacture pure Class-A circuits to the highest standards possible while offering excellent value, an intuitive user experience, and a sound that engineers, producers and musicians have come to love. Phoenix Audio products include mic preamps, EQs, compressors, DIs and summing mixers.

Originally formed in 1996 as the UK’s leading service provider for pre-1980 Neve recording consoles, Phoenix Audio’s lead designers include Shaun Leveque (former electronics engineer for the ministry of defence & expert vintage Neve console repair technician) and design consultant David Rees (formerly the designer manager for Neve and responsible for the famous 2253/4 limiter/compressor). Both designers have been working with Phoenix Audio since it’s inception.

With their deep knowledge of the recording world’s most loved Class-A circuits, Shaun & David went on to create their own products under the Phoenix banner. With their robust, forward-thinking Class-A circuits comprised of today’s best components, their designs have fast become modern classics. Hand-wired in-house by a team of experienced engineers, one can sense—and, of course, hear—the quality of boutique, small-scale manufacturing in every piece of Phoenix Audio gear.

Originally working very close to the legacy designs but in the past years taking their own route to manufacture ex. summing amps with special design features that help the integration into a modern production environment.

The Phoenix Audio products is instantly recognizable by a great non-neutral sound with great dynamics that enable the user to be creative and inspired.
