Doing a school project is the PERFECT excuse to design build a test my first ground up original Microphone pre-amp!
I learned these buzzwords from the Kimber cable guy:
The imaging is fantastic, totally forward sounding with edge AND detail on the soundstage. Though precise, there isn’t that analytical flavour tainting the dry sound in the copper typically found in other microphone pre-amps. Micro-clipping isn’t an issue anymore! By a factor of at leased 10, the noise floor is lower than you’d ever expect. With an un-constrained matrix, painting the sound stage will be a pleasure. Tipping the value curve, the proportions are just right.
But honestly… I’ve not heard it yet, or kimber cable for that matter.
Seriously though… it’s a transformer coupled double balanced class A instrumentation pre-amp using only the best. Actual results to follow!
