NAB Preview: Millennia Media HV-3

Millennia Media announces the new HV-3C, a stereo, high-voltage microphone preamp housed in a 1U, 19-inch steel rack case. As a successor to Millennia’s HV-3B stereo mic preamp, the HV-3C adds new features, such as an improved power supply, newly designed front panel and a digital output option.

The HV-3C employs 36-stepped gain positions with 1.5dB gain steps. High-resolution 36-step gain control is now standard on the HV-3C with no additional cost. The new front panel design includes a 3/8-inch-thick mirror-gloss black-aluminum face plate with hand-machined aluminum knobs and illuminated pushbutton switching. HV-3C’s power supply has also been improved for enhanced performance and longevity.

HV-3C is ready to accept a factory-upgraded 24-bit, 192kHz A/D POW-r converter, which is planned for delivery later in 2005. HV-3C is a discrete hybrid design that provides for optional DPA 130-volt microphone inputs and DC inputs, giving HV-3C an entirely DC-coupled signal path from input to output, without servo amplifiers.

The unit features silver-teflon power wiring, Neglex oxygen-free audio wiring and components sourced from manufacturers such as Grayhill, Roederstein, Wima and Beyshlag. The HV-3C is available now through professional audio retailers at $1,995 SRP.
