A sweet sounding, single channel, vintage-style mic pre built the way audio components were built before integrated circuits became available.

The PRE-73 DLX is a one-channel vintage style microphone, line and instrument preamplifier. The signal path on the PRE-73 uses only discrete components. This is the way audio components were built before integrated circuits became available. The subjective sound quality delivered by vintage equipment is often preferred 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.

The line and microphone input and the line output are transformer balanced, using three different transformers, each one optimized for its purpose. The circuit used in the PRE-73 DLX is similar to the preamp section in the vintage Neve1073 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.

  • Vintage Style electronics, with no integrated circuits in the signal path
  • Maximum input gain 80 dB, enough to handle passive ribbon mics with quiet sound sources
  • Gain range on the Line input: -20 to + 10 dB
  • Switchable impedance on mic input, 1200 or 300 Ohms, will change the tone of most mics
  • Switchable phantom power and absolute phase
  • High-impedance instrument input for any sound module, electric guitar or bass
  • Simple but effective 4-step LED output level meter
