Everything in the tittle except the fact that I'd like to buy them to someone in Europe.

Hi,
since the vactrol onto cells are banned from the EU market, these are difficult to get. There is an Xvive license / clone on the market which promises the same values as the Vactrol VTL5C4/2. Maybe the manufacturer belongs to the Behringer Group ( just check )

Thanks for your answer but this is an original silver face Urei LA4 and I can't see no Vactrol cells inside my unit but these ones... (picture attached)

I don't know and I can't find any information on which reference opto cells does the LA4 uses. I found that but really expensive and in USA so adding 30€ to the 95€ for shipping to France.

Have you searched the forum?
This thread talks about the 5910 vs 6910

Looks like the 6910 is better for the LA4 since it used a red LED for illumination instead of EL panel.

I'm sorry. I thought you meant the LA4 clone. So I misunderstood...
