My father purchased the product rights and the name Teletronix from Babcock Engineering in , folding it into his Studio Electronics Corporation, shortly before he changed the name to UREI. There were three different variations of the LA-2A during this period before production was discontinued around Straightforward in its design, and initially intended for broadcast applications, the LA-2A quickly became standard equipment in studios worldwide.
Many have been painstakingly maintained for the 30 years that they have remained in use since production stopped. A tube-based compressor, the LA-2A features hand-wired components and two simple controls.
At the time, its electro-luminescent optical gain reduction was quite revolutionary: applying the audio signal to an electro-luminescent light panel which shines on a photoelectric cell which in turn controls the gain.
In contrast to the electro-optical devices which preceded it, the electro-luminescent light source provided the fast attack necessary for broadcast applications. To this day the LA-2A delivers a trademark sound treasured by engineers worldwide. Here at Universal Audio, we have gone to great lengths to recreate the LA-2A with complete authenticity. Every step was necessary to ensure that each LA-2A delivers the sound you expect.
To that end, we are interested in your opinions about your favorite pieces of vintage gear. In addition, Universal Audio is working on new products designed to meet the demands of the modern digital recording studio, yet retaining the character of classic vintage equipment.

Take special care to follow the warnings indicated on the unit itself, as well as in the operating instructions. Water and Moisture — Do not use the unit near any source of water or in excessively moist environments. Object and Liquid Entry — Care should be taken so that objects do not fall, and liquids are not spilled, into the enclosure through openings.
Ventilation — When installing the unit in a rack or any other location, be sure there is adequate ventilation. Improper ventilation will cause overheating, and can damage the unit.

Always grasp the plug body when connecting or disconnecting it. Grounding of the Plug — This unit is equipped with a 3-wire grounding type plug, a plug having a third grounding pin.

Do not defeat the purpose of the grounding-type plug. Carts and Stands — The unit should be used only with a cart or stand that is recommended by the manufacturer.
