« 300 or 1200 Ohms switchable »

Published on 10/17/12 at 22:49
The Golden Age Project Pre73 MKII is a microphone preamp that comes in at a very fair price if you ask me! It has a max gain of 80dB and line input range from -20 to 10dB. The microphone impedance can be switched between 1200 and 300 OHM. The Golden Age Project Pre73 MKII will give you high quality recordings with no effort at all. It is easy to use, but you could have a little difficulty if you are not comfortable working with a preamplifier similar to this one. It is built like a tank, and built to last a long time. I have been using it for 2 years and it has never failed me or even got a scratch or scuff on it.


UTILIZATION

The level control (output) has “overloading” to the main gain, and fine gain adjustments. You can use your dynamic or condenser microphones with the golden Age Project Pre73 MKII because it can be switched from 300 to 1200 OHM’s. You can connect it to a synth or any sound module, bass guitars or electric guitars and you will automatically hear what it does for your sound.


SOUND QUALITY

My favorite thing about this preamp is the multi-input gain stage. If you need the MKII for limiting it will work great, but I prefer to use an external compressor to do my limiting/compression before I get to the final stages of mastering.

OVERALL OPINION

The sound is really colored with this preamp, the sound of the Pre73 MKII easily can compete with any preamp that costs twice the amount that it costs. It is a must have for your studio and at this price you really couldn’t get anything better for the money spent. I would purchase this again if anything ever happened to mine. It does also come with a 1 year warranty just in case!
