Buzz introduces the Elixir pre-amplifier
||Buzz Audio announces the release of its microphone and instrument preamplifier, the Elixir. Designed to fit into the popular API 500 Series rack format, the Elixir features a transformerless mic input using the proprietary Buzz Audio True Class A Amplifier technology coupled with a high specification Swedish Lundahl output transformer.
The sound of the Elixir preamplifier was designed to be "warm sweet and liquid" with the Lundahl output transformer adding a subtle amount of low frequency colour. The Elixir features up to 70dB of microphone gain, a comfortable +34dBu of output level before clipping, a low -132.5dB EIN noise level and a wide frequency response out to 300kHz. Controls include output mute switch, high and low input impedance selection plus the usual phase change, input pad and phantom power switching. A front panel 1/4" jack allows for the amplification of all instrument and keyboard types via the on board "boot strapped FET" high to low impedance convertor.
Future True Class A 500 Series products from Buzz Audio to be released in 2006 include a Light Dependant Compressor and Parametric Equaliser.
