The signal path uses only discrete components like resistors, capacitors and transistors. The microphone and line input and the line output are transformer balanced, using three different transformers, each one optimized for its purpose. This is the way audio components were built before integrated circuits became available. The circuit used in the PREQ-73 PREMIER is similar to the preamp and the equalizer section in the classical 1073 module with a corresponding sound character that is warm, punchy, sweet and musical.
These classic characteristics have been heard on countless recordings through the years and it is a versatile sound that works very well on most sound sources and in most genres. The essence of this sound is now available at a surprisingly low cost, making it available to nearly everyone. UK-made Carnhill mic input and line output transformers. Tantalum capacitors in the signal path. Vintage British styling with Marconi Gain and fluted Output knobs.
Amplifier circuits with polystyrene capacitors. Sturdy toggle switches with gold-plated contacts. Connector-free internal wiring, all connections are soldered for the purest signal path. Beefy power supply with external adapter to eliminate electromagnetic interference with audio circuits and transformers.Prepared for mounting of 1 or 2 units in the Unite Premier rack kit. Air EQ circuit, selectable for 3dB or 6dB at 30kHz. 80Hz/200Hz highpass filter, polarity reverse, and 14dB Output Pad.
