    Hey guys...I need a compressor and have about $300 to spend. Needs to be stereo or I can buy two seperate units. Any and all suggestions please...

    Thanks in advance.

    I like my RNC as an inexpensive compressor. If you need separate controls for each channel, you could buy two of them for about $300 used in excellent condition.

    Good luck,

    Nick

    You're not likely to find better advice. RNC has the market on price/performance.

    If for some reason, you object to the RNC, the ART pro vla is a good one for under $300. Maybe you need balanced i/o or want something more impressive looking. And the vla has vu meters, those always sound good. And tubes, can't forget those. Yes, just get the RNC and don't look back.

    Thanks guys...that is exactly what I am looking for.

    Any suggestions on a dealer for these and how much I should look to pay? I know they list for $199, but what is the street price on these?
