Aphex Model 107 Dual Channel Tube Microphone Preamp (USED) – Unit is in very good condition, fully operational, thoroughly tested, slight scratching on enclosure (see pictures), comes with power supply
The Aphex Model 107 Dual Channel Thermionic (Tube) Microphone Preamplifier combines the best attributes of both tube and solid state circuitry to provide performance unmatched by conventional designs. The solid state front end is transformerless and only expensive, great sounding capacitors are used in the signal path. the tube circuit is a revolutionary new invention (patents pending) which imparts the sonic characteristics of tubes without the extremely high voltages, heat, fragility, and short life span of conventional tube circuitry. It is called TUBESSENCE.
The Model 107 provides you with two discrete preamp channels, each with its own dedicated controls. The switchable 49 volt Phantom Power supply makes it compatible with all microphones; dynamic, ribbon, electret condenser or large diaphragm studio condensers. Despite its extremely attractive price, the Model 107 delivers outstanding sonic performance, such that you can confidently match it with even the most esoteric microphones and the most advanced recording media. The sonic benefit you can expect from the Model 107 is a greater degree of presence, detail, openness and image. You can also expect extended high frequency response without any harshness, Lastly you should realize improved bass response that is tighter, deeper and richer than before.
Any facility, from the simplest home studio to major state-of-the-art recording studios, can benefit from using a Model 107 instead of a console's microphone preamplifiers. The improvement will astound you! Bypassing the console altogether and recording direct is yet another opportunity to achieve even hotter sounding tracks. Live performers can also profit from using a Model 107: vocals and instruments are clearer, cleaner and more up-front. The Model 107 delivers that great sounding mix in the house P.A., stage monitors and studio.
