The J PRE 500 is inspired by the flagship Aphex 1788A remote controlled used in studios, on stage and in broadcast.  They both use the same Jensen JT11K8 nickel input transformer while the J PRE 500 also features a Jensen JT-11DL nickel output-balancing transformer.  The single J PRE 500 provides affordable access to he legendary 1788A sound.

The J PRE 500 features Aphex’s patented Mic-Limiter technology that works before the preamp. With the limiter on, it’s nearly impossible to clip the input of the preamp, making the J PRE 500 ideal for no-second-chance recording.

Applications:

  • Live Performance - The Aphex 1788A is an industry standard mic pre for live performance. It is commonly used for award shows like The Grammys, The Academy Awards and The Country Music Awards. The J PRE 500 is inspired by the preamp from the 1788A and includes Aphex’s patented Mic-Limiter technology that works before the preamp for those times when there is no second take.
  • Professional Studio Recording - When you plug into the J PRE-500, you’ll instantly think “This is the real deal – this is the sound people think of when they hear professional recordings from a big name studio!”. The ¼” input also makes it easy to run instruments through the mic pre without using a direct box.
