Professional mic preamp utilizing premium Jensen components
John Hardy Co. M-1 mic preamps are among the finest mic preamps in the world. They provide the accuracy and transparency that is missing in other mic preamps. No matter what your application, they will provide superior sound quality. The world's best input transformer (Jensen JT-16-B), best op-amp (990 discrete op-amp) and the elimination of all capacitors from the signal path combine to provide the highest performance. The M-1 has a 19" wide mainframe rack-mount chassis (1.75"H x 19"W x 8"D).
The M-1 was introduced in 1987 and while sonically identical to the M-2 there are a few control differences. The M-1 has a two-section gain-pot providing continuously variable adjustment in two overlapping ranges that are selected by the "High Gain" switch. (The M-2 has a 16 position gain-switch with 1% metal-film resistors providing accurate and repeatable gain settings and since the "High Gain" switch isn't necessary it's available with either a 20 ohm mic switch OR a 20dB pad switch.)

These are fantastic. I've used them in studios for years and finally got some of my own. They were backordered and I live in Chicago, so VK was able to work it out so I could pick them up from John directly once they were ready. He showed me around his shop for an hour and explained the inside of the unit to me, answered all my questions about potential maintenance issues down the road. Even offered me a Coca-Cola.
