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 pathMaximum input gain 80 dB, enough to handle passive ribbon mics with quiet sound sourcesGain range on the Line input: -20 to + 10 dBSwitchable impedance on mic input, 1200 or 300 Ohms, will change the tone of most micsSwitchable phantom power and absolute phaseA high-impedance instrument input for any sound module, electric guitar or bassA simple but effective 4-step LED output level meterThe output level controls for fine gain adjustments and to overload the main gain stage(s) for more characterCombo XLR/TRS input jacks and separate output XLR and TRS jacks for flexible connections.Insert jack for inserting EQs and other unitsExternal high power power supply to avoid interaction with the audio circuits and transformersA solid build quality that will last many years of normal usePRE-73 DLX improvement and new features:Tantalum capacitors in the signal pathSelectable 1073-style high pass filter, 50Hz, 80Hz, 160Hz and 300HzOutput Attenuator -7, -14, -21 and -28 dB (located after the output transformer) allows overdriving the output stage and the output transformer for added character by lowering the output signal to a suitable levelThe circuit board is prepared for Carnhill Mic and Line transformer and high pass inductorThe Insert jack can be switched in/out from the front panel. An internal jumper can select that the Insert jack always has an output signalSwitchable 600 ohm Output Termination and Ground Lift on the back panelSelectable Active or Passive DI input and selectable input impedance in active mode, Hi Z or 100 kohm, by internal jumpersThe DI can signal can be selected to pass or bypass the mic input transformer by internal jumpersRelays are used to control internal switching for DI input, Phantom power, Mic Low Z, Insert and Phase for shorter circuit board signal paths.
