Ark console


Discrete - Class A - Modular - Analogue Console

From the start, the Ark console has been about modularity and configurability.

We designed a number of standard parts and modules, which can be combined almost any way, so you can get exactly the console you want.

We tried to make configuring the console as easy as possible, but there are a lot of options and possibilities. You may need to read through the information on this website (sorry for that).

To make things easier we offer two standard configurations:
the Ark 1648 and Ark 4048

On our
custom configuration page you can assemble your preferred console.

The
Ark console is available directly from us, and will soon be available through a limited amount of pro audio retailers.

We’re only an email or phone call away.
So please
contact us with any questions or for any assistance in putting together your perfect console.
Side note on production / orders / lead time.

The
Ark is completely hand-built, with an incredible eye for detail.
All modules, parts and components are checked, double checked and triple checked.

Assembled parts/modules come from different small manufacturers in Belgium, Germany and the UK.

Each of these manufacturers takes great pride in their work, and will go out of their way to make sure the part/module they assemble is 100% perfect.

The downside of this is that supplies are limited so we can only build a limited amount of consoles (or channels) a month.

Striving for the highest quality, we have no intention to change this production method, and definitely will not “go east”.

Depending on the amount of consoles we are building when you place your order, it may take months between order and actual delivery.

To allow us to better plan production, we offer a Pre-Order discount. The longer you order in advance, the higher the discount, the less you pay. Please contact us for details.
