Universal Audio's 4110 Precision series mic pre
Universal Audio has launched the 8110 and 4110 Precision multichannel microphone preamplifiers. Both units feature a brand new Class-A, all-discrete design with dual-stage level controls and unique 3-way Shape switching on every channel for a versatile tone palette. The 8110 (an 8 channel unit) and the 4110 (a 4 channel unit with DI) will list for $5,295 and $3,195, respectively.
"UA is well known for classics and vintage recreations, but the 8110 and 4110 are brand new designs, developed and road-tested in the studio just like the historical UA solid-state 1108 and 1109 units," said Joe Bryan, VP of engineering for Universal Audio. " The precision 110 Series was designed to stand alone with its unique sonic character and tonal flexibility to go from ultra-clean and transparent, to warm and ‘crunchy’ via our front-panel switchable transformer loading or Shape control."
Key features include all-discrete Class-A, transformer input, DC-coupled output, 80dB gain; 3-way Shape switch; Modern/Vintage/Saturate, dual-stage level controls for maximum harmonic flexibility; Fast transients, wide-bandwidth, high-headroom, low-noise; mic XLR, TRS or XLR line and D-sub 25-pin connectors; and more.
