Schoeps Microphones VSR 5 Two Channel Microphone Preamp – No Longer Available

Discrete, 2-channel analog reference microphone preamp
MFR# VSR 5

Product Description

Schoeps is known as a manufacturer of high-quality, small-diaphragm microphones which are a standard in studio recording. Now SCHOEPS is introducing the VSR 5, a top-class studio microphone preamplifier. It offers analog circuit technology at the SCHOEPS level of quality.

  • Two "Schoeps Core SVM" Amplifier Modules with balanced, electronically
  • floating Inputs
  • +48 VDC phantom power (switchable)
  • 0 to 60 dB rotary gain controls in 3 db steps
  • State-of-the-Art RF Filters
  • 2 x 2 electronically floating balanced outputs
  • Mains Supply 115/230 VAC
  • 19" Rackmount - 2U
  • 10.34 lbs.

This preamplifier excels with its wide dynamic range and extremely low distortion. It has a “dual mono” arrangement overall, with two independent knobs to set the gain in 3 dB steps.

Two amplifier modules form the heart of the VSR 5. For a number of years their circuit has been our in-house reference for testing microphones, so it seemed only logical to make it available to our customers as well. It was inspired by the legendary “TransAmp LZ” modules from Valley People, long recognized for being especially low-noise but by using up-to-date components, SCHOEPS has outdone the original in terms of sonic transparency.

The VSR 5 is Schoeps’ first 19" rack-mount unit, conceived specifically for use in the studio. The choice of operating controls has been deliberately limited to essentials: switches for phantom powering, polarity reverse and mute, plus three different low-cut filters.

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.
