This classical sound has 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 PRE-73 MkIII has a maximum gain of 80 dB on the mic input and the gain range on the Line input is -20 to + 10 dB. There is also a high-impedance instrument input. The PRE-73 MkIII is perfect for almost any signal source, no matter if its a microphone with a high or low sensitivity (like a passive ribbon mic), a syntheziser or sound module or an electric guitar or bass.
The input impedance of the microphone input can be switched between 300 and 1200 ohms, which makes it possible to affect the tone of most microphones. There is also phase switch and an simple 4-step LED signal level meter. The output level control makes it possible to make fine gain adjustments and also to overload the main gain stage for more character and then lower the signal to a suitable level before the output stage. The PRE-73 MkIII Update Consists of. Tantalum capacitors in the signal path.
Selectable two frequency high pass filter. The pcb is prepared for the Carnhill input transformer. Revised and less complicated GAIN switch with a separate switch for MIC/LINE selection. All GAIN settings can be used also in LINE mode. Vintage-style electronics, no integrated circuits in the signal path.Maximum gain on the mic input is 80 dB, enough to handle passive ribbon mics with quiet sound sources. Gain range on the Line input: -20 to +10 dB. Switchable impedance on the mic input, 1200 or 300 Ohms, will change the tone of most mics.
Switchable phantom power and absolute phase. A high-impedance instrument input for any sound module, electric guitar or bass.
A simple but effective 4-step LED output level meter. The output level control makes it possible to make fine gain adjustments and also to overload the main gain stage(s) for more character and then lower the signal to a suitable level before the output stage. Combo XLR/TRS input jacks and separate output XLR and TRS jacks. Insert jack for inserting EQs or other units.
Selectable 600 ohm output termination. External power supply to avoid interaction with the audio circuits and transformers.
