The SPL GainStation 1 microphone and instrument preamplifier has the goal of noticeably improving a signal and sending it along its path with a healthy foundation, requires a great deal of thought and engineering effort.

The GainStation 1 has a very compact design allows for free placing also outside of a rack (e. g. close to the microphone). Musicians can place the GainStation 1 easily on a rack or amplifier.

SPL GainStation 1 Features:

  • Separated Solid state and tube preamps. The tubepreamp can be added to the solid state stage to add varying amounts of tubesaturation from subtle to brutal
  • Peak/FET Limiter
  • Switchable Mic Input Impedance (200 Ohms, 1,2 &10 kOhms)
  • Custom-made, fully discrete, class A op-amps (nooff-the-shelf stuff here). 60V Rail operating voltage—twice as high as mostcommon op-amps—for an incredible dynamic range
  • All switch functions are handled by encapsulatedrelays with gold-plated contacts
  • An extremely high amplifier slew rate of <40V/µs,ensuring clean transmission of high-frequency signal portions and rapidtransients with virtually no clipping
  • An almost entirely DC-coupled signal path, makingsignal-degenerating condensers unnecessary.
  • An optimized layout guarantees the shortest possiblesignal paths, while generously proportioned grounding surfaces ensure lowimpedance and maximum shielding
  • All resistors are within 0.1% tolerance and wereselected after extensive listening tests.
  • A no-compromise power supply with extensiveadditional shielding and seven separately wound and regulated voltages
  • A tube stage utilizing premium MKP foil condensersand a select 12 AX7 LPS tube for clear, dynamic audio
  • Optional 24/192 AD converter and Lundahl inputtransformer
  • Made in Germany
