After that, you can post your question and our members will help you out. They, in contrast to the pre, sound very very good. Digirech you find this review helpful? As a home studio owner, I’m never going to be able to afford a truly great mic pre.

The PRE gain sound fine until you get to about 3.

I wasnt dibitech attached to the sound of the Penta pre and did not find the compressor all that usefull. You have to manually dial down the low end for a roll off. From 3 to 5 it gets mildly fuzzy but too much for and acoustic micing for a clean sound and it is totally useless beyond 5 unless your looking for that “telphone voice” distortion. For the manual I do not know I’ve never had in my hands. Replaced the stock tubes with EI 12ax7.

I’ve never heard a phase switch make this kind of drastic difference. I would almost take the pre’s in my old Berri The input impedance is close to 10k, that is what I attribute the “enhanced” hi-end.

Maybe it was designed that way but then Anyone here have experience on these units? The sound of the preamp is kind of crisp on my AT compared to a transformer balanced mic pre. I had the opportunity to use a Symetrixthe comparison does not really intrt, as they are really not the same type of sound.

Does not color the sound unless you add gain. I’ve had this for over 10 years and paid retail. Looking to bid on this unit for my home studio. You can always sell and upgrade at a later point, digitrch keep it around for another color. Bill, I tend to agree with Mike’s response.

Bookmarks Bookmarks Digg del. Does a real good job warming things up. The rglage are very easy, hop triturated gain and trim to add the color that you DSIR, we look at the meters on the level, yammer a red LED to indicate of possibly clip, a little kick eq and hop we are left with the sound appropriate.

It is based on the SSM preamp chip which as others would say is ok, but not as good as the which is in the Symmetrix SX mic pre.

The bass roll of swith does basically nothing. Then, as Mike said, there is the RNP. It was all most as if the phase switch was the bass roll off switch in reverse or something. Log in Become a member.
