Black Lion Audio Auteur Preamp – No Longer Available

High-quality, fully-balanced, transformerless console-style, two channel mic preamp
MFR# Auteur Twim-Channel Preamp

Product Description

For one, the Black Lion Audio Auteur Preamp is a design that's somewhat unique in its approach.  It has a high speed input stage that will pick up lots of detail and nuance, and is followed by a high current output stage.  Circuit headroom is plentiful, and the input stage is very difficult to clip.  Because of its fully balanced design, it can handle input signals as large as +15dB with ease.

It also has a 600 ohm M-6 silicon steel output transformer to give the audio a thick quality that's reminiscent of a prized vintage preamp.  The preamp is dual channel and features phase, +48vdc phantom power, and 10dB output signal pad.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
