US: The 2007 AES Convention marked the much-anticipated debut of London Tube, a range of tube products resulting from a collaboration between Audient and David Manley Design. A trio of new products were unveiled at the show, namely Model 936 Variable Mu Compressor (pictured), Model 933 Mic Preamp and Eq, and EQP-2a Passive Eq, reports David Davies.

London Tube constitutes the latest stage of a long association between David Manley and Audient technical director David Dearden that dates back to the late 1960s. The idea of collaborating on the design of a new range of tube gear arose following a meeting between the two designers earlier this year. David Manley returned to the pro-audio scene with the launch of a range of valve-based processors at AES France last year, but was forced to curtail his new operation due to legal wrangling.

Audient sales and marketing director Luke Baldry tells PSN-e: "We were all really excited when this opportunity arose. I can't think of a more attractive prospect than producing a product range that draws on the wealth of design experience of David Manley and David Dearden, although Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein working on a time transporter might have been quite cool."

Audient MD Gareth Davies added: "Experience is a huge asset, and with the pooled horse-power of David Manley and David Dearden we have possibly the most significant design resource that has been deployed in any recent tube development in this industry."
