Dual-Channel Mic Preamp

This version of the WA-273 boasts an integrated EQ section for further sculpting and tonal shaping capabilities. The preamp is ideal for both studio and live applications, with its versatile design ensuring optimal audio fidelity no matter the input source. The WA273-EQ utilises fully discrete Class- A electronics, suited to a wide range of equipment. From Condensers to Ribbon microphones and from electric guitars to pianos, the WA273-EQ will process it all, in immense detail, utilising the classic tone and sound from vintage preamps.

EQ Section

The WA273-EQ also boasts an integrated EQ section. The EQ section features a 3-band configuration, allowing you to shape and sculpt your tone for added control. The complex dual concentric switch potentiometers are constructed in the UK by Blore Edwards, who supply military-specification switches and potentiometers. This adds to the precision and durability of the components, ensuring you get full control over your EQ section, with exceptional accuracy.

In-Depth Control Section

One of the most unique features of the Warm Audio WA273-EQ, is the hand-wired and hand-assembled design. The comprehensive yet ergonomic control section is comprised of a 80dB gain switch, as well as a Tone button and a 4-position inductor based hipass filter. The Tone control changes the input transformer impedance, resulting in a varied tone for added flexibility, ideal for use with instruments and vocals alike. With 80dB of gain in total, the preamp gives you more than enough headroom to process a range of instruments and microphone types. The hipass filter is great for removing unwanted low-end response, highly useful when it comes to recording microphones and high-end-based instruments.

Versatile Connectivity

The preamp features a vast range of connectivity, allowing you to connect a wide range of external musical instruments and equipment. It boasts an XLR mic input, line-level TRS input, TS Send/Receive insert jacks, as well as XLR & TRS line-level outputs. A direct input is also included for processing and recording instruments such as electric guitars. There is also an output control potentiometer for controlling your levels with ease.

Rack-Mountable Design

The streamlined and ergonomic layout provides annotated controls with high-quality fittings, optimising your workflow. The WA273-EQ utilises tantalum and polystyrene capacitors and an output transistor choice for a smooth response when the gain settings are pushed. Additionally, it boasts built-in 48V Phantom Power, a Polarity switch, a ground lift switch and a built-in LED level meter.
