Whether you play guitar, bass, keyboards or another stringed instrument, you'll need a direct box that won't diminish your instrument's tone, like the Direct Box Active and Direct Box Passive from Warm Audio.  Built around world-famous CineMag USA Transformer topology and engineering, like no other DI Boxes in the world. Constructed with top-tier discrete components housed in rugged aluminum chassis' that include switches, knobs and connectors that are all designed to withstand heavy abuse on the road or in the studio. Made With USA Custom CineMag Transformers Every aspect of our direct boxes are designed for maximum sonic integrity, from the custom-wound CineMag USA transformer to the rugged metal knob and switches.  You can expect warm, rich tone even after long cable runs, and the extruded aluminum enclosure ensures a long life span.  When you need to convert an instrument-level signal to mic-level, with sonic quality as your top priority, you'll be well-served with the Direct Box Active and Direct Box Passive from Warm Audio. New DI Box Experience Warm Audio DI boxes offer the rare versatility of having an onboard variable pad knob which attenuates your input signal all the way from -3dB to -30dB, which will easily tame any instrument input source. Both of our Direct Boxes offer a Thru-put jack that is jumpered to the input jack. It is a convenience jack allowing you to send your instrument's signal to a second place in addition to the live mixer or recording device. Our Direct Boxes can also take a recorded signal at line level and send it to another line input while simultaneously sending signal out of the XLR mic level output of the Direct Box. Typical Applications For A DI Box Connecting electronic instruments such as guitar, bass, keyboard, or drum machines directly to a PA or recording system. Simply put, a DI box converts the high impedance, unbalanced output signals to low impedance, balanced output signals. By doing so, the instrument signals are now converted to the proper voltage level for the PA or recording system - which greatly reduces and/or eliminates connections which could cause tonal shifts and distortion. Passive Or Active? Direct Box Active is best for instruments with passive pickups, especially acoustic instruments.  The Direct Box Active can also operate in "passive" mode. Direct Box Passive is best for balancing the signal of instruments with active electronics, but still performs extremely well on passive pickups by producing a frequency range that exceeds the bandwidth of most passive DI boxes on the market. Passive Specifications CUSTOM-WOUND CINEMAG USA OUTPUT TRANSFORMER CONVERTS INSTRUMENTS TO MIC-LEVEL SIGNALS WITHOUT SIGNAL DEGRADATION IDEAL SOLUTION FOR PLUGGING YOUR INSTRUMENT DIRECT INTO ANY MIC PRE TOP-QUALITY CLASS A COMPONENTS WITH GOLD-PLATED TRACES ON CIRCUIT BOARD RUGGED ALUMINUM CONSTRUCTION PAD: VARIABLE FROM -3DB TO -30DB BALANCED OUTPUTS: 600 OHMS, MIC LEVEL INPUT IMPEDANCE: 1 MEG OHMS  THD: .01% FROM 20HZ TO 50HZ.

Classic British Console Sound on a BudgetThe Pre 73 MKIV is Golden Age Audio’s latest and greatest update to their best-selling ‘73-style preamp series. The spirit of classic British consoles lives on in the Pre-73 MKIV, and it sounds warm, punchy, sweet, and musical. Use it to add tone and color to your favorite mics, or keep things clean; it also doubles as a line-level preamp and DI box for electric guitar and bass. Get classic console tone—and get the most out of your mic locker.Classic console color—if you want itGet vintage color and punch by cranking up the Gain knob without fear—a dedicated Output control lets you attenuate the signal so you can drive the preamp without overloading your interface inputs. Engage the -14dB pad for even more control of hot signals, or keep things clean and transparent by backing off on the Gain and turning up the Output. Further sculpt your tone via the selectable low-pass filter to eliminate unwanted low-end rumble at the source, and use the selectable top-end Air EQ to add some shimmer and presence to your top-end. Use the Low-Z switch to toggle between 1200 or 300 Ω resistance and hear how your mics react!Connect to anythingThe Pre-73 MKIV’s switchable +48v mic input lets you use both condenser and dynamic microphones, while its 80 dB of Gain make it ideal for use with sensitive ribbon microphones on delicate sound sources. Line- and instrument-level inputs allow further connection to nearly any audio source, and you get an Insert jack for using external processors like EQs and compressors. You have your choice of TRS or XLR out.Quality firstTrue to classic preamps of yesterday, the Pre 73 MKIV was designed with a focused attention to component choices and build quality not found in other preamps near the same price. No surface-mount components or integrated circuits are used, and all inputs and outputs are transformer-balanced, using two different purpose-optimized transformers. Its external power supply eliminates the risk of self-noise, and its metal half-rack chassis is both sturdy and portable.

Both the 3124V and the 3124MV are designed with the professional engineer in mind. Both units give four channels of the highest possible quality mic preamp. However, the 3124MV provides an additional audio mixer with a transformer balanced output, keeping the unit size and price reasonable. Both models are equally at home in the control room, studio, and recording truck or on stage. The 3124MV utilizes the same microphone preamp circuit that is used in all API consoles. It is equipped with the AP2516 input transformer and the proprietary output transformer found in all API mic pres and throughout the API product line. The unit offers Variable Output Level Control, switchable 3:1 output transformer selection, and an internal 48-volt phantom power supply, which is front panel switchable for each channel. Also provided is a front panel -20 dB pad switch that affects both the mic and line in. A 1/4" phone jack is available on the rear panel for each channel as an insert tip-send/ ring-return placed between the mic pre amp output and the mixer input. Like the 3124V, the 3124MV provides up to 65 dB of gain. The Hi-Z front panel input goes directly to the op-amp, allowing a low level input such as a guitar or bass to be amplified without a matching transformer or direct box. This Hi-Z input can accept input levels as high as +20 dBu, making it perfect for keyboards and other high level devices. The rear output is an XLR connector. Additionally, the 3124MV adds a stereo panner with a level control, and a post "fader" aux send. The stereo panners and the aux sends are bussed to master output controls and then to the rear panel jacks. A stereo AUX return is provided to return effects or cascade additional mixers for more inputs. The unique stereo aux return control acts to balance the left/right signal, yet staying stereo. It can also be used as a mono return.

These can for example be ideally connected to a multi-channel AD converter, with the for this kind of device type typical DB25 input. An additional external signal splitter for back-up systems during a recording session is therefore no longer necessary.Perfection in detailThe input differential amplifiers are constructed with pairs of transistors, each of which is combined in a housing. Precise matching of the transistors and thermal coupling ensure high common-mode rejection and extremely low THD values. The choice of transistors and resistors has a decisive influence on the sound. In countless listening sessions the optimal components for Crescendo were selected – the effort paid off!More sound through innovationOur 120V SUPRA operational amplifiers work as current amplifiers, which also offer pure class A operation with over 6 mA quiescent current. We largely dispense with coupling capacitors in order to avoid their sonic disadvantages (diffuse, sloping, loss of dynamics). In order to eliminate DC voltage components active servo circuits are used.

This one is bigger and more kitchen sink-y. This starts with a precision rotary switch gain control, which levels up the audio performance, especially in higher gain ranges (ribbon mics welcome). A 2 position high pass filter gives excellent control of problem bass / rumble areas at 75Hz or 150Hz. A 3-band EQ with sweepable mids rounds out the tone shaping. The FX loop can be defeated by a footswitch and has an onboard blend control to run your effects at 100% and adjust wet / dry amount on the preamp. The input is a combi XLR / 1/4″ jack, so it can run as an instrument preamp like its buddy ALiX .We could keep going, but you get the idea: REX and ROXi are wicked mashups of a mic pre, channel strip and stage preamp. Plop one on your your studio desktop and boom, you have an genuine Grace Design recording channel. Tack one to your pedalboard and you have a Swiss Army knife style stompbox with astonishing audio performance and massive flexibility. Do the Swiss actually give those little red knives to their army?

The Chandler Limited Germanium Preamp/DI is a throwback to a time when gear sounded great. Germanium transistors have been used in audio gear including Neve, EMI, Telefunken, and Fairchild for their unique sonic characteristics. It hasn't been used in current gear for a while now, but that all changes with the Germanium Preamp/DI. What make this preamp unique are the gain circuits. The Gain/Germanium Drive control and Feedback control are intricately linked. Gain acts as a standard gain control, but roll up the amount of Feedback and the Germanium Pre realizes its full potential, as well as adding a small bass boost and a tasty high-frequency roll-off. For cleaner tones keep the Feedback on the restrained side, or crank it up for fat guitars and vocals. There aren't any other preamps like the Chandler Limited Germanium Preamp/DI.Chandler Limited Germanium Preamp/DI at a Glance:Outfit your studio with a unique-sounding preampReap the sonic benefits of germanium transistorsYour sonic obsession: Chandler's missionOutfit your studio with a unique-sounding preampThe Germanium Preamp/DI is a cutting-edge design by Chandler Limited designer Wade Goeke that uses classic germanium transistors in all Class A, transformer balanced, circuits. The use of germanium devices opens a whole new sound palate not found in any pro audio equipment currently manufactured. The results are warm and tube-like, with a fat bottom end. Yes, this is the classic vintage coloration we all gush over, and it's yours for the taking - in the Germanium Preamp/DI.Reap the sonic benefits of germanium transistorsSmooth-sounding germanium transistors were the basis of the earliest transistor designs by Neve (1053, 1055, 1057), EMI ( TG12345 MKI), Telefunken, and Fairchild. Those familiar with these units can attest to the special sound of the germanium tranasistor. Chandler Limited's Germanium series runs on +40 volt power, high current, and has a huge +34 output before clipping. The sound is warm and smooth as with many vintage style circuits, but you'll find a whole new world of smooth here as well as a sound that settles in perfectly to your tracks without fighting.Your sonic obsession: Chandler's missionRecording engineers are always looking for fresh tonal colors and approaches when tracking - it's an obsession. Chandler feeds this addiction with their innovative take on the technologies of the past. They start with painstaking component selection. The Germanium Preamp/DI's parts list reads like a 40-year-old document. Seriously - they just don't build 'em this way anymore. Hand-wired and assembled in the USA, the Germanium Preamp/DI utilizes 100% discrete transistor circuitry and specially wound transformers.

The PRE-73 Jr PREMIER is a one-channel vintage style microphone- and instrument preamplifier. The signal path uses only discrete components like resistors, capacitors and transistors. The in- and output is transformer balanced, using two different transformers, each one optimized for its purpose. This is the way audio components were built before integrated circuits became available. Integrated circuits are small and cheap and widely used in most modern designs. It is clear though that audio components built with modern technology doesn´t always provide the best perceived sound quality or the type of character that the modern user desires. On the contrary, the subjective sound quality delivered by vintage equipment is often prefered over the one delivered by modern units, a situation that is even more obvious now when music is recorded with clean-sounding digital audio equipment. This is the reason why so many vintage audio components are cloned and produced again and also why the vintage originals are often very expensive on the second hand market. The circuit used in the PRE-73 Jr PREMIER is similar to the preamp section in the classical 1073 module with a corresponding sound character that is warm, punchy, sweet and musical. These classic characteristics have been heard on countless recordings through the years and it is a versatile sound that works very well on most sound sources and in most genres. The essence of this sound is now available at a surprisingly low cost, making it available to nearly everyone.

50 Years Of Analog Design In One Rack Space. Introducing the Heritage Audio BritStrip — the culmination of 50 years of analog design in a single rack unit. Britstrip nails the sound of yesterday’s iconic recordings for today’s demanding engineers. The BritStrip combines a real-deal 73 mic preamplifier, an expanded 73 equalizer, a discrete Class-A DI, and the infamous diode bridge compressor from the Heritage Audio Successor. The closest equivalent of the BritStrip would be chaining together a 73JR, 73EQJR and mono Successor — a $3000 value pack in itself, with added routing flexibility. The Mic Preamp That Meets All The Demands. The BritStrip starts with the same preamp as our 73JR, with a new custom input transformer co-designed with Carnhill and exclusively made for HA in the St Ives factory.. The preamp also features a custom Carnhill St Ives output transformer, which completes it’s all discrete, Class-A, 3-gain stage design. The preamp features 80 dB of gain, 20dB pad, phase reversal and an impedance switch for 1200 or 300 ohm input. The Discrete Class-a Di The DI is also taken from the highly acclaimed design found in the Heritage Audio 73JR, an all-discrete Class-A JFET circuit in front of the microphone transformer, giving you all of the color and weight you could ask for. The DI also includes a passive thru output to feed a separate amplifier. An Expanded 73 Equalizer. The BritStrip eq features 3 Vinkor pot core inductors in the mid band and high pass filter sections. The impact is hard to believe with extreme boosts being exceptionally musical. The mid band is great for sculpting fat and punchy snare, kick, guitars, vocals — you name it! No need to be subtle like you would with most eqs — BritStrip doesn’t sound phasey or loses headroom in extreme settings. The inductor-based low-pass filter, directly taken from the 73 design, lets you control out of range low end — without affecting the quality of your desired frequencies. The high and low shelves have been extended to include a bell mode — making them more versatile than ever before. A Successor-Like Compressor The diode bridge bus compressor needs little introduction, as it’s the same compressor found in the multi award-nominated Heritage Audio Successor. Diode bridge compression, a 60 year old patent, took on a whole new life with the expanded features and incredible fast attack/release times of the Successor. With BritStrip, this powerful compressor design is perfect to use for tracking, thanks to it’s blend control and elaborate sidechain filter. This gives you plenty of tracking potential, as you can give instruments that “record-ready” dynamics as performers monitor — giving them a finished “real-time feel” as they perform. The compressor section provides plenty of sidechain flexibility, with 5 frequency options, and an external sidechain input. And if that weren’t enough flexibility, 2 BritStrips can have their compressors linked for the ultimate stereo tracking solution. Routing Flexibility The BritStrip allows for compression and equalizer routing. Eq’ing pre-compression makes the compression detector more sensitive to the boosted frequencies and less sensitive to those cut. Inversely, eqing post compression makes the detector insensitive to the eq settings.

A lot of preamps on the market do a good job of raising the volume of mics and instruments. Unfortunately, many pres are doing only that, raising volume.  The “Super clean” designs of today often leave the signal exiting the preamp sounding much the same as it did entering it.The WA12 MKII is a completely discrete, high voltage, dual-transformer microphone preamplifier designed for high gain (+71dB), high headroom, low noise, and an exciting sonic performance – great for all types of recording applications.  A high quality mic preamp is one of the most critical pieces needed to achieve the elusive ‘larger than life’ sound, and the WA12 MKII is more than capable of delivering. ​The WA12 MKII is based around a discrete op-amp, the X731, which is our own reproduction of the vintage classic Melcor 1731, considered by some to be the warmer predecessor to the modern 2520-style op-amp.  The X731 can achieve vibrant, clean and lifelike tones; but can also be driven into mild saturation at much higher gain levels.  The effects can be subtle, but very pleasing to the ear.  The WA12 MKII can also accept any discrete op-amp on the market which conforms to the +/-16v, 2520 pinout standard.   In this example, the WA12 MKII is being routed as an insert into a recording device. This is useful for using the WA12 as an “analog plug-in” or insert for mix-down. The recording device is feeding the WA12 with a balanced 1/4” cable via a line output. Then, the recording device is capturing the WA12 MKII via a LINE LEVEL input. Note: It is important to use a line level input on your recording device as opposed to a microphone or instrument level input.If you are looking for a preamp to improve and shape your signal you will most definitely love the WA12 MKII. The WA12 MKII is designed to transform plain instruments and vocals into exciting tone.  If your mixes lack depth, struggle to sound alive, or are just missing that professional touch you’ve always wanted, there is a good chance you will love the WA12 MKII. Specifications: Utilizes premium grade input and output USA CineMag transformers. 71db of Gain, fully discrete signal path. Utilizes a discrete 6-pin socketed 1731 style opamp.  Can be replaced with other 6-pin "2520 foot-print" opamps for varying tone/flavor. TONE button – Switches the input impedance from 600 ohms to 150 ohms.  Changes the tone of both the mic and HI-Z inputs. 2 Meg Ohm True HI-Z input on front panel. Sends instrument signal through entire circuit including both Cinemag Transformers and the discrete opamp. Great for guitars, bass, keyboards and other instruments that have a 1/4″ output jack. Mic level balanced input: XLR. Balanced outputs: XLR and 1/4″/TRS. 48 volt Phantom Power. Output attenuation control (after the CineMag output transformer) allows for driving the preamp and transformers into saturation. LED Meter gain indication. 20db pad. External power plug. ​​

The Tone Beast now is BLACK !  This great mic pre with loads of gain that can effortlessly capture an array of sources very well. With top notch CineMag transformers and multiple discrete signal paths, it's hard to beat its big, bold, fully-professional sound at its price. The Tone Beast is a mic pre that likes to be pushed and when pushed will colorize your signal ever so sweetly. The 2 opamps and 2 output transformers at the flip of their switches won't appear to be much different, but as one drives the pre into harmonic distortion, the unique character of each of these components becomes apparent. Additionally the Tone Beast is customizable and allows for other opamps to be sourced and easily swapped into the unit. I've pulled my best tones from this pre right at the saturation point (as loud as I can push the gain before clipping). The output control on the TB12 allows you to limit the signal exiting the preamp even when pushing the gain to really hot levels, giving you maximum control. The goal was to make a microphone preamplifier affordable for the first time, without compromising the quality and design parameters that make this type of microphone preamplifier so desirable.   Home-based musicians and professional studios alike will find the Tone Beast to be an extremely powerful and fully professional piece of gear that is capable of warming and shaping signals/mixes in a way that is very pleasing to the ear. The TB12 "Tone Beast" is a high-voltage microphone preamplifier, utilizing CineMag USA Transformers. Have no fear of hurting the Beast, you can push it very hard into full-on distortions if you wish, and these can sound quite nice on electric guitar, bass or anything else that likes some nice grit. When hand building mic pres I learned a bit about the "subtle" differences component choices can make. A little change here, and another there often times became a huge deal in a finished mix, but often times is not very noticeable at first take. The different component options in the TB12 are subtle, but when driven into saturation are noticeable and can make a big difference to the way your final mix will sound. Home-based musicians and professional studios alike will find the Tone Beast to be an extremely powerful and fully professional piece of gear that is capable of warming and shaping signals/mixes in a way that is very pleasing to the ear. Specifications: Utilizes premium grade CineMag USA Transformers. 71db of gain. Transformer selection provides both Steel and 50% Nickel CineMag output transformers for varying character. Transformer bypass switch allows for removal of the output transformer from the circuit. Discrete Opamp selection allows for choosing between a 1731(vintage) and 918(cleaner) style .opamp.  These are socketed/swappable with your choice of 2520 6 pin footprint opamps. Impedance switch labeled TONE to switch between 150 and 600 ohms input impedance.  Changes the Tone of all inputs (Mic, Line and Hi-Z.). 2 Meg Ohm True HI-Z input on front panel sends instrument signal through entire circuit including both Cinemag Transformers and the discrete operational amplifier. Great for guitars, bass, keyboards and other instruments that have a 1/4″ output jack. Capacitor selection between Tantalum and Electrolytic for different characters. 80hz hipass filter. Polarity Reverse. +48V phantom power. Output attenuation allowing for saturation flexibility of both the opamps and transformers. ¼" insert for the use of inline compressors, eq's etc. Balanced XLR mic, balanced TRS line, and ¼" instrument inputs. -20db Pad.

HIGH FIDELITY 8 CHANNEL MIC PREAMPLIFIER In 1994 we released the Model 801 microphone preamplifier, which was the first production model for Grace Design. It set a new standard of sonic quality and reliability for microphone preamplifiers, providing much better performance than the built-in circuits in the recording consoles of the day. It featured independent circuit boards for each channel, gold contact rotary gain controls wired with precision metal film resistors, a musical sounding transimpedance (current feedback) gain stage, gold contact sealed relay signal switching, and there were NO electrolytic capacitors in the signal path. 12 years later, we released the next generation of this preamplifier, renamed the m801, which refined the design features of the previous version, and added a fully differential signal path and Ribbon Mic mode, which optimized the signal path for low output ribbon microphones. Now 20 years later, the next generation is here, now named the m801mk2. Newly designed amplifier circuitry adds to the features of the previous versions while significantly improving noise performance at low gains, increasing low frequency bandwidth for improved phase response, improving RFI/EMI immunity for today’s ever noisier world, and eliminating the external DC power supply for a cleaner, simpler design. Today’s modern recording studio is invariably loaded with incredible sonic processing capability, making the opportunity to add great sounding color routine. But capturing the magic at the front end is still the job of skillfully designed analog hardware, for which there is no substitute. This makes our preamps more relevant than ever.

First Eight-Channel Microphone Preamplifier featuring 120V TechnologyThe Crescendo is the first microphone preamplifier which operates with an internal operating voltage of 120V. Making it absolutely unique, because with the 120V Technology it is nearly impossible to overdrive this preamplifier. The Crescendo excels with absolute signal fidelity and clarity. Rediscover your microphones, they have never been amplified like this.SUPRA op-amp Thanks to the discrete buildup with our proprietary high-voltage amplifiers, the SPL SUPRA op-amps, and thus a possible internal operating voltage of +/- 60V (120V Technology), the Crescendo provides unprecedented technical performance data. Crescendo is capable to amplify even the fastest transients, the finest details and the complete frequency range, clean and almost without any distortion.Use the Mic Gain for the setting of the pre-amplification. You can control a range from 18dB to 70dB. For high-level signals, which do not need to be amplified that much, you can use a PAD with -20dB. Thus the control range of the amplification is shifted to -2dB to 50dB.In and Output StagesThe differential amplifiers in the input stage are built-up with transistor pairs, consolidated in in a special housing. A precise matching of the transistors as well as thermal coupling guarantee a high common mode rejection and extremely low THD values. The choice of transistors and electrical resistors has a massive impact on the sound. Within countless listening sessions, the perfect components for the Crescendo were chosen – It was well worth the effort!ServoThe discrete op-amps of the output stage are able to drive long cable paths without any problems. The output stages operate as current amplification, which, with 6mA quiescent current, also provide mere Class A operation. We almost completely renounced to use coupling capacitors, to avoid their sonic disadvantages (diffuse, blurring, loss of dynamics ). However, to eliminate DC voltage, active servo circuits are used.

The 1073 Legend Lives in Warm Audio's Splendid WA73-EQThe legendary 1073 wrote the book on characterful mic preamplification and EQ. These venerable circuits helped define the punchy sound of '70s rock — and countless recordings and live concerts ever since. Today, this coveted tone can be yours for a song, with the Warm Audio WA73-EQ mic/line/instrument preamp. In both design and performance, the WA73-EQ pays homage to the revered British console lineage that started it all. Throughout the audio industry, the 1073 is considered the holy grail of preamps and EQs, with a rich, sweet, and bold tonality that's ideal for making audacious statements with your music. After years of R&D, painstaking reverse-engineering, and countless hours of listening, Warm Audio captured the sonic essence of this classic perfectly in their boutique WA73-EQ. With 80dB of gain and a fully discrete transformer-balanced signal path, the sound is a revelation: harmonically rich bottom end, focused midrange, and slightly resonant highs.Handcrafted with top-quality parts Boasting weapons-grade build quality with discrete, handwired Class A circuits and top-drawer parts such as UK-made Carnhill transformers and Blore Edwards mil-spec, dual-concentric switch pots, the WA73-EQ has 80dB of gain on tap so you can capture subdued sources with your favorite ribbon mic. Your ribbons and condensers will sound heavenly; you'll even be gobsmacked when you hear how authoritative your dynamic mics sound. Cranking the input stage and backing off the output gain enhances your tracks with tasty vintage-style coloration. Topping off the feature set is an instrument jack, polarity reverse, 48V phantom power, and switchable impedance for tonal variation and to optimally match a variety of microphones.Optimize every source — and microphone There is no source that doesn't sound amazing through the Warm Audio WA73-EQ. With judicious mic selection and placement, drums are larger-than-life; DI bass and keyboards sound massive and synths become trance-inducing; electric guitars soar; vocals rule. Pianos and acoustic guitars are resplendent. Orchestral instruments — strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion — achieve ineffable lushness and dimension. You can even use the WA73-EQ as a tone-shaping tool to run stems or complete mixes through. Hear what the WA73-EQ can do for your own recordings. It's transformative.Definitive British EQ The EQ section of the WA73-EQ adheres to the classic 1073 circuit topology. The vintage 1073 is the holy grail of EQ, and the WA73-EQ nails its sonics and behavior (complete with its fabled harmonic distortion). It's a three-band affair, with HF shelving at 10, 12, and 16kHz; midband peaking with selectable center frequencies at 360Hz, 700Hz, 1.6kHz, 3.2kHz, 4.8kHz, and 7.2kHz; and LF shelving, selectable at 35Hz, 60Hz, 110Hz, and 220Hz. A highpass filter, selectable at 50Hz, 80Hz, 160Hz, and 300Hz, lets you trim your signals of unwanted low end. If you've never worked with a 1073-style EQ before, all we can say is: you're in for a serious treat. It's worth noting that the original 1073 offered only a fixed 10kHz shelf, and the additional high-frequency flexibility afforded by the WA73-EQ is most welcome.UK Custom Carnhill transformers 1073-loving engineers at Sweetwater perk up when the conversation turns to the component history of these classic circuits, and signal transformers are a frequent topic of discussion. Vintage 1073s used different transformer variants throughout their production run; but the most coveted were the very first ones made by Marinair Radar, due to their fluid and forgiving nature that saturates sweetly when pushed. They have been known to bring engineers to tears when they hear how gorgeous their mixes sound through them! Warm Audio turned to Carnhill Transformers of Cambridgeshire, UK, to design meticulous replicas of these most desirable early 1073 transformers. The results are stunning, and — to our ears — tantalizingly close to early vintage 1073s.Warm left no stone unturned A vital yet not-often-discussed component of these classic British circuits is the different types of capacitors and output transistors used. To maintain the integrity of the original circuits, Warm decided to use high-quality tantalum and polystyrene capacitors in the signal path and an output transistor choice that delivers smoother results at higher gain settings than what is commonly found in today's 1073-style preamps. All considered, Warm Audio's monumental effort to design a no-compromise product has paid off handsomely. You'll appreciate this every time you plug into the WA73-EQ and hit record.Warm Audio WA73-EQ Mic/Line/Instrument Preamp and EQ Features: Handwired and hand-assembled, single-channel 1073-style preamp/EQFully discrete, Class A, transformer-balanced circuitryUK-made Carnhill Transformers80dB of gain handles any type of microphone, including low-output ribbonsResistor-stepped rotary gain switch for easy recallTone button changes input transformer impedance for mic optimization and tonal shapingPolarity switch48V phantom power4-position inductor-based highpass filter, selectable for Off, 50, 80, 160, or 300HzInductor-based 3-band equalizationLow-band boost/cut at 35, 60, 110, or 220HzMid-band boost/cut at 360, 700, 1600, 3200, 4800, or 7200HzHigh-band boost/cut at 10, 12, or 16kHzAdditional high-band frequency EQ points added (compared to vintage 1073)XLR mic inputLine-level TRS inputTS Send/Receive insert jacksXLR and TRS line-level outputsDI instrument inputOutput level controlLED level indication meterRugged 19" rackmount chassisGround lift switchInternal IEC 115V/230V power inlet
