Earthworks 1021

With a similar design philosophy to their microphones the ZDT preamp series embody uncompromising clarity. The transient response, distortion rating and flat frequency response are almost unmatched at any price.

The 1021 also provides frequency response from 1Hz to 200kHz +0.5dB, a rise time of 0.27 microseconds and distortion of less than 1 part per million (0.0001%), eliminating all possibility of sonic degradation.

Features

  • Zero Distortion – less than one part per million
  • High output level +30dBu
  • Very low output impedance will drive long lines without interference or signal loss
  • True 48 volt phantom, polarity reverse & clip indicator
  • Separate XLR & 1/4” Phone (t-r-s) outputs, each with its own gain/level controls
  • 1/4” phone connector output will drive balanced or unbalanced inputs
  • Full differential (balanced) from XLR in to XLR out – no internal conversion to single-ended
  • All discrete components; Class A amplification (no ICs in the signal path)
  • Greater transparency with minimum signal path and minimum features
