Product Description for the Golden Age Project PRE-73 MKIII

The PRE-73 MKII is a one-channel vintage style microphone-, line- and instrument preamplifier. The signal path uses only discrete components like resistors, capacitors and transistors. The line and microphone input and the line output are transformer balanced, using three different transformers, each one optimized for itspurpose. This is the way audio components were built before integrated circuits became available.

Integrated circuits are small and cheap and they are 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 qualityor 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 onedelivered by modern units, a situation that is even more obvious now when music is recorded with cleansoundingdigital 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 MKII 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.

Features

  • Vintage Style electronics. No intergrated circuits in the signal path.
  • Maximum gain on the mic input is 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 the mic input, 1200 or 300 Ohms, will change the tone of most mics.
  • Switchable phantom power and absolute phase.
  • A high-impedance instrument input for any sound module, electric guitar or bass.
  • A simple but effective 4-step LED output level meter.
  • The output level control makes it possible to make fine gain adjustments and also to overload the main gain
  • stage(s) for more character and then lower the signal to a suitable level before the output stage.
  • Combo XLR/TRS input jacks and separate output XLR and TRS jacks for flexible connections.
  • Insert jack for inserting EQ´s and other units.
  • Selectable 600 ohm output termination.
  • External high power power supply to avoid interaction with the audio circuits and transformers.
  • A solid build quality that will last many years of normal use.
