I don’t have a lot of time today to be clever and witty but I did want to give yall something to drool over. BAM… ok that’s done, so lets move on to new gear shall we?
A-Designs makes pre-amps that could pretty much put a whole collection of gear to shame with one unit. Looks like they’ve just made another.
Equally ideal for both studio recording and live sound use, the JM-3001 from A-Designs Audio is a versatile preamplifier, equalizer and instrument input housed in a single-rack-space frame.
Hand-built in the US, the new A-Designs device features three inputs – microphone, instrument and EQ/insert – which may be used together or independently. The product is also equipped with a highly musical three-band parametric EQ and high/low filters, as well as two independent transformer balanced outputs (microphone and EQ).
The heart of the JM-3001 is its C12X discrete transistor operational amplifier designed by Carl Johnson that operates on ±30 VDC rails. The C12X is a high-gain, fast-slew, stable audio block with virtually no DC offset over the audio spectrum and is capable of driving a 50 ohm load at 50 Hz with very little current draw. It is used in the microphone preamp, instrument input amp and main output/EQ output stages of the product.
As with all A-Designs Audio products, only the best possible components are used. Resistors are 1% metal film except the EQ, which is 0.1%. Capacitors are all quality polystyrene, polypropylene, COG and bi-polar. Furthermore, input/output XLR connectors and switches are gold/silver contact with no relays.
