PreSonus ADL600 2 Channel High Voltage Tube Preamp

Details
The ADL 600 by PreSonus is a high voltage 2 channel microphone preamplifier that has been designed by world-renown analog tube circuit designer Anthony DeMaria. The ADL 600 also features a discrete Class A design with three vacuum tubes per channel for maximum headroom and tonality as well as being hand built in the USA.

PreSonus' ADL 600 contains some of the gratest components in the world including switched attenuators, military-grade vacuum tubes, analog VU and LED meters, custom-designed proprietary transformers, and much more. All of which, when combined, create a warm, smooth and precise sound that is not rivaled.

The ADL 600 by PreSonus was created to provide ultimate sonic performance, and is also simple to use and versatile, thanks to its ability to allow for many types of input sources, which sets it ahead of other preamps. The input selector allows you to select between Hi-Z instrument input, line input, and 4 different microphone impedances for a wide variety of sounds and applications, all adding to the versatility.

The ADL600's High Pass Filter is a rotary switch that has 3 filter settings (40Hz, 80Hz, and 120Hz @ 6dB per octave) for passively and unobtrusively controlling room rumble and low frequency noise. The input gain attenuator is a military-grade rotary switch delivering 5dB step increments and a total preamplifier gain of over 72dB.

The output stage onboard the ADL600 is controlled by a fully variable conductive plastic attenuator that delivers +/- 10dB of fine tune trim adjustment that helps to set the perfect gain structure for the situation. The ADL 600 also includes 48V phantom power and a -20dB pad both controlled by big sturdy military grade switches.
