Because of this, they added a 600-ohm M-6 silicon steel output transformer to give the audio a thick quality that's reminiscent of a prized vintage preamp. It's the best of both worlds in their opinion. The Auteur preamp is dual channel and features phase, +48vdc phantom power, and 10dB output signal pad. Elements of the Auteur's chassis and presentation are extremely simple, with a minimum of the fluff and promotion that tends to drive up the cost of equipment in our industry. It's housed in a 1U high 1/2-rack space chassis, and can be linked together with a second Auteur to fill up a full rack space.If you're looking for the sort of performance normally associated with high-end designs but need to acquire it at a modest price, this mic preamp will make a wise and affordable investment for your home or project studio. Pulling from the tech of fully-balanced transformerless circuitry found in a variety of other lauded recording consoles, the Black Lion Audio Auteur is a 2-channel mic preamp that uses a similar high-speed configuration. Each channel comes equipped with polarity inversion, +48v phantom power, and a 10dB output signal pad. This half-rack mic pre is powered by a Triad wall-wart power supply and can be linked up with another of Black Lion's half-rack pres to get a full-sized rack. In International Buyers - Please Note.
