H2 Audio Helios 0011 Microphone Preamp/EQ

Painstaking recreation of the channel module from the legendary 1960s Helios consoles featuring the 2128 preamp circuit with 70 dB of gain and Lustaphone input transformer, and inductor-based EQ with selectable LF and MF and fixed 10 kHz HF controls

MFR# 0011

Product Description

H2 Audio is reviving a piece of studio history with the introduction of the H2 Audio Helios 0011 Mic Pre and 3-Band EQ. The much sought-after Helios channel module has finally returned and is ready to conjure the same magic it did for Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, The Who and countless others.

The 0011 is a painstaking recreation of the channel module from the legendary Helios consoles of the 1960s. H2 Audio’s Al Sutton and Tim Mead spent long hours sourcing parts and replicating Dick Swettenham’s original design to ensure authenticity. The resulting module is the most sonically accurate version of the Helios 0011 to grace the pro audio world.

This new module features the original Helios 2128 preamp circuit with 70 dB of gain in 5 dB increments. H2 Audio has gone the extra mile and sourced a perfect replica of the Lustaphone input transformer for the mic pre. The Lustaphone input transformer was a crucial component of the sound of the earliest Helios preamps. The mic preamp portion also includes a 20 dB pad and a balanced line in section.

The EQ portion of the H2 Audio 0011 module is inductor-based with selectable LF and MF and fixed 10 kHz HF controls. This section also includes phase control, EQ bypass and a selectable High Pass Filter with the original 40 Hz and 80 Hz filter points.

In addition to all of the original Helios greatness, H2 Audio has added an output amplifier and output transformer so the module can drive a 600 Ohm load up to 25 dB before clipping. Both the amplifier and transformer are original Helios designs.

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.

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.
