The Vintech Audio X81 is a Class A mic pre with equalizer. Our "X81 Class A" features the same great preamp as our X73, but with a more comprehensive four band EQ.
While many people love the classic Neve 1081 module because of it's versatile equalizer section, many feel that it's use of class AB amplifiers causes it to lack that certain "magic" associated with the class A amplifiers found in the Neve 1073 module. Our new "X81 Class A" features the same great microphone preamplifier as our X73, but with a more comprehensive four band equalizer with "Q" adjustments on the two mid range frequencies.
We utilize the same class A amplifier designs found in the Neve 1073 module throughout our X81 Class A. The equalizer section features ten low mid frequency points, 10 hi mid frequencies, 5 frequecy choices on both the low and high shelving adjustments. There is also a high pass filter, a D.I. and an ouput strength meter.
