Stunning Signal Compression

The Manley Nu Mu features Manley's new HIP function allowing for great compression at lower volumes whilst leaving the louder volumes untouched. The result is a stunning overall signal compression with louder soft sections and original dynamics of the louder sections.

Handcrafted in California

The Manley Nu Mu, like most of Manley's products, is handcrafted in California to provide a sturdy, yet attractive design to fit in perfectly with any studio rack thanks to the rack mountability. The Nu Mu offers visual and ergonomic aesthetics designed to "elicit ravishing compliments from your clients".


"The Manley Nu Mu uses a variable-mu tube compressor circuit, a solid-state side-chain path, and also a solid-state output amplifier. You get Manley's acclaimed IRON input transformers and the same ultra-low impedance switched mode power supply as used in the Manley CORE channel strip unit.

Interestingly, the all-new feature called the HIP control allows compression at lower dynamic ranges, while leaving louder dynamics unaffected. Working something like a Wet/Dry control where you can mix the compressed and uncompressed audio signals, it is easy to get just the right amount of compression without squashing the dynamics out of the most exciting transients.

I can't wait to get my hands on the Manley Nu Mu! The Manley Nu Mu sells for $2,800 MSRP."
