Advanced Audio MT8016 Dual Channel Microphone Preamplifier
Extremely quiet and musical dual-channel microphone preamplifier in true AA style featuring variable mic gain -10 to +60 dB and a sweepable high-pass filter 30 Hz - 350 Hz
The Advanced Audio MT8016 is an extremely quiet, musical preamp that sounds spectacular on any source. Its design is based on the finest vintage pres using modern components and circuitry. Numerous discussions with renowned designers resulted in a preamp unlike any other. Starting with the design concept from a Trident series 80, and adding balanced transformers, and concepts taken from Neve, API, and SSL.
A continuously variable mic gain -10 to +60 dB allows high SPL sources to be attenuated -10 dB after the transformer, thus preserving the transformers musicality by eliminating the need for a pre-transformer pad; which can "suck the life" out of a microphone preamp.
The MT8016 features a sweepable high pass filter 30 Hz - 350 Hz. A stepped, sweepable filter means that low frequencies can be rolled out for the desired amount of attenuation to remove rumble while maintaining the warmth of a vocal or instruments sound. The HP switch completely bypasses the HP filter circuit, eliminating it from the signal path.
Large analog VU meters featuring 'Cool Blue' illumination and large hand calibrated meters means you have no trouble seeing the exact level.
Heavy-duty metal toggle switches for 48V phantom power, phase reversal, and high-pass filter circuit all feature separate LEDs, visually let you know when these features are engaged.
By using only the highest quality components, that are all hand soldered here in Canada, Advanced Audio has maintained the quality of the past while offering a preamp that lives up to today's demanding studio requirements.
