Neumann V476B Mic Preamps Racked Pair with Internal 230V Mains and 48V Phantom Power. From the fine Volks at Neumann in former West Berlin, the same people who gave us so many legendary sounding microphones, preamps, EQ's, and compressors come the V476b microphone preamps. The 476b is the second generation of the Neumann PMV 70 microphone preamp and all circuitry is discrete, living up to the strict German television and radio broadcast standards regulated by the Institut für Rundfunktechnik in the 60's, 70's, and 80's- thereby earning it the designation V476b. These were manufactured from the late seventies all the way until 1989 when Neumann quit manufacturing all audio audio equipment except microphones.
High tones are present yet smooth, midrange is silky smooth, and low frequencies are fuller and tighter and overall they have a gentle color character. Put these in the signal path and listen to your microphone open up! I find them to be a bit more solid and punchy than their PMV-70 counterpart and they will tighten things up on the low end and smooth out those high-end frequencies oh so nicely.
Plus 76 dB of gain is more than enough for even the most sensitive of ribbon mics. Racked by our Lab, they are a perfect mix of vintage sound with modern functionality and reliability. Transformer balanced inputs and outputs.
Up to 76 dB gain in 6dB increments. Gain fine tuning adjustment knob up to 10dB. Selectable high pass filter at 80 and 140 Hz. XLR mic level inputs and XLR +4 dB outputs in 2U.The item pictured is the one you will be receiving. Copy of Original Schematics/Manual upon request.
