Radial Engineering PowerPre 500 Series Preamp

100% discreet mic preamp with three position voice control
MFR# R700 0110

Product Description

The Radial PowerPre is a high performance microphone preamplifier designed to be used with the Radial Workhorse and other 500 series modular racks. It features 100% discrete components to deliver up to 70dB of gain and employs a ‘vintage’ Hammond broadcast output transformer for warmth and exceptionally smooth tone.

  • Hand selected 100% discrete electronics
  • Hammond broadcast transformer output
  • AccuState™ low-noise input circuit
  • 3-position Vox control for added air or punch

The design begins with a front mounted XLR for instant connectivity plus a recessed 48V phantom power switch for safety. Unlike most mic preamps that require careful gain adjustment to avoid troublesome noise, the Power Pre is equipped with the newly developed AccuState™ input stage that automatically optimizes signal-to-noise at all levels and is supported with a full 10 segment LED for accurate signal monitoring..

To add extra character; a 3-position Vox control lets you set the PowerPre to ‘breath’ for added high frequency air such as when accentuating a vocal track or adding harmonic content to an acoustic guitar. The ‘punch’ setting adds body when recording electric guitar or can be used to fatten a voice. When set to linear, the PowerPre delivers a truly natural rendering for orchestral recording that will suit the requirements of the most demanding purist. This is augmented with a gentle high-pass filter that helps control low end resonance when layering instruments.

Ultra quiet, low noise and an exceptionally warm sounding… The PowerPre makes spectacular audio easy.

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.
