Some minor rack rash on top/front. Incredible sounding preamp on any instrument or voice. Heavy-duty power supply can power up to 4 Vintech units. Recently checked out and given a clean bill of health.
One note on this unit, the silkscreen labels for the "Line in" and "Impedance" switches were reversed on the face-plate (both channels). I've seen a couple like this so a few must have gotten out of the factory before it was caught. This is visual only and has no effect on operation. Please check the closeup photo for clarification.The Vintech Audio 273 features two Neve 1073-style microphone preamplifiers. The 273 includes "essential EQ" on every channel.
Vintech calls the high and low shelving EQ adjustments "essential" because they help to enhance certain instruments and impart a certain magic to the sound like a vintage Neve 1073. Frequency choices are 5.6kHz and 12kHz for the highs and 60Hz and 110Hz on the low shelving.Each channel also offers an input sensitivity adjustment allowing up to 70db of gain, an input impedance switch, a mic-line switch, an instrument input and switches for phantom power, phase reverse and EQ on or off. I have done my best to represent this item accurately. Thank you for your interest in this item!
