  • Vintage Style electronics - no integrated circuits inthe signal path.
  • Maximum gain on the mic input is 80 dB, enough tohandle passive ribbon mics with quiet sound sources.
  • Gain range on the Line input: -20 to + 10 dB.
  • Switchable impedance on the mic input, 1200 or300 ohms, will change the tone of many mics.

The Golden Age Project PRE-73 DLX is a one-channel vintage style microphone-, line- and instrument preamplifier, with a number of improvements and features compared to the PRE-73 MKII, including:

The signal path uses only discrete components like resistors, capacitors and transistors. The line and microphone input and the line output are transformer balanced, using three different transformers - each one optimized for its purpose.

The sound quality delivered by vintage equipment is often prefered over that delivered by modern units, a situation that is more obvious now when music is recorded with clean-sounding digital audio equipment.

The circuit used in the PRE-73 DLX is similar to the preamp section in the classical 1073 module with a corresponding sound character that is warm, punchy, sweet and musical. These traits have been heard on countless recordings and it's a versatile sound that works well on most sound sources and in most genres.

Golden Age Project PRE-73 DLX Features:

  • Vintage Style electronics - no integrated circuits inthe signal path.
  • Maximum gain on the mic input is 80 dB, enough tohandle passive ribbon mics with quiet sound sources.
  • Gain range on the Line input: -20 to + 10 dB.
  • Switchable impedance on the mic input, 1200 or300 ohms, will change the tone of many mics.
  • Switchable phantom power and absolute phase.
  • A high impedance instrument input for any soundmodule, electric guitar or bass.
  • A simple but effective 4-step LED output level meter.
  • The output level control makes it possible to makefine gain adjustments and also to overload the main gain stage(s) for morecharacter and then lower the signal to a suitable level before the outputstage.
  • Combo XLR/TRS input jacks and separate output XLR andTRS jacks for flexible connections.
  • Insert jack for inserting EQ ´s and other units.
  • External high power power supply to avoid interactionwith the audio circuits and transformers.
  • A solid build quality that will last many years of normal use.
  • Tantalum capacitors in the signal path
  • Selectable 1073-style high pass filter, 50, 80 , 160 and 300 Hz
  • Output Attenuator -7, -14, -21 and -28 dB (located after the output transformer) allows overdriving the output stage and the output
  • The circuit board is prepared for Carnhill Mic and Line transformer and high pass inductor.
  • The Insert jack can be switched in/out from the front panel.
    • An internal jumper can select that the Insert jack always has an output signal.
  • Switchable 600 ohm Output Termination and Ground Lift on the back panel.
  • Selectable Active or Passive DI input and selectable input impedance in active mode, Hi Z or 100 kohm, by internal jumpers.
  • The DI signal can be selected to pass or bypass the mic input transformer by internal jumpers.
  • Relays are used to control internal switching for DI input, Phantom power, Mic Low Z, Insert and Phase for shorter circuit board signal paths.
    • Relays are controlled by front panel switches.
  • Revised gain switch for added headroom
  • Circuit board star grounding scheme
  • Revised power supply with separate regulators for the audio circuits andrelay and LED circuits
