EAR 824 Tube Microphone Preamp

EAR 824M valve microphone preamplifier
MFR# 824-M

Product Description

The EAR 824 Mic Pre is a versatile device for use as an upgrade from standard mic amps or as a level booster and line driver for use with any microphone.

Power is available as either 48V phantom powering or as other optional configurations including 130V for the B&K line of mics.   With the optional EAR matching transformer ribbon microphones can also be accommodated.  Gain is switchable from 16dB to 60dB in 4 dB steps (2 dB steps available as an option) to cover all applications.

Onboard M/S decoding can be provided as a custom order.  Output is balanced via a wideband transformer with impedance suitable for driving long lengths of high-grade cable.

This amplifier enables the user to extract the maximum from any microphone with the minimum of signal degradation.  A fully thought out product rather than an afterthought as often provided by microphone manufacturers, it applies the same expertise in audio amplifiers as has made the EAR power amplifiers famous.

Specifications:

  • Input impedance: 600 ohms (standard phantom power version)
  • Output impedance: 650 ohm, balanced and floating
  • Maximum output level @ 1% distortion: +26dBm into 600 ohms
  • Microphone power: up to 7mA available per microphone

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.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
