API 3124V Discrete 4 Channel Mic/Line Pre with Variable Output
£2,398.33 ex. vat
The API 3124V is a compact 4 channel mic preamp perfect for any professional engineer or studio. It has a RE-115K mic input transformer and a proprietary output transformer found in all API gear.
The 3124V offers variable output level control and switchable 3:1 output transformer selection. The unit has an internal +48v phantom power supply which is switchable for each channel along with a -20dB pad switch.
The unit provides up to 65dB of gain and the Hi-Z front panel goes directly into the op-amp, allowing any low level inputs such as a guitar or bass to be amplified without a matching transformer or D.I box.
