Quotes From Others
"One of the best sounding consoles ever built. The mic pre is based on the extended frequency response Trident TSM series input module... According to the manufacturer, the preamp measures an E.I.N. of -126.4 dBu (with 200 ohm input source); at max output of +28 dBu, dynamic range is a whopping 154 dB."
"Diamond Dogs was a milestone in Bowie's career as it reunited him with Tony Visconti, who provided string arrangements and helped mix the album at his own Good Earth Studios in London, on a Trident TSM, brand new from Trident at the time, console. Visconti would go on to co-produce much of Bowie's work for the rest of the decade." " The Trident is quite possibly the best sounding console ever. Of course that, as well as all I say here, is strictly my opinion, but I'm sure most would agree about the Trident. "
