Grace Design m101

The model 101 is the highly desirable, yet surprisingly affordable single serving of the critically acclaimed Grace Design microphone preamplifier. It uses the same fast, musical transimpedance amplifier architecture as our venerable models 801 and 201, but is packaged and priced to be within the reach of any recording engineer, musician, or studio.

The model 101 maintains Grace Design pedigree throughout. It employs our fully balanced, transformerless, transimpedance circuit topology and has no electrolytic capacitors in the signal path. With incredible bandwidth, headroom and resolution, the model 101 is remarkably natural, musical and detailed. It is also available with an extended gain range input (20-70dB), designed for gain-hungry ribbon microphones.

The included instrument DI input is designed to accommodate a wide variety of high impedance input sources, making the moldel 101 an excellent choice as a DI box which will flawlessly preserve the sound of any plugged-in instrument. Imagine the same resolution and detail as our microphone preamplifiers available for DI recording situations. Lackluster sounding instrument pickups become alive with clarity and detail.

To top it off, the model 101 is thoroughly rugged and road worthy, so discerning live performers can use it to achieve studio quality sound with their live performance setups. It is rack mountable in a standard 1U rack tray, and two units happily nest side by side in one rack space.

Equally at home amplifying a vintage condenser mic or an acoustic guitar, the model 101 delivers the kind of high fidelity performance previously available only to big budget recording studios and Grammy winning musicians and engineers. This is hands down the ultimate single channel microphone preamplifier available for under $1,000.
