  • Transformerless Input
  • Transformer Output
  • 66 dB Gain
  • Phantom Power
  • Phase Reverse
  • Per Channel Pad
  • Half Rack Space Enclosure

The Auteur from Black Lion Audio is a dual channel microphone preamp that features fully balanced transformerless circuits, using a similar topology found in many highly acclaimed recording consoles. This provides a high slew rate circuit on the input stage that faithfully reproduces the leading transients of any audio source. The balanced design also provides ample headroom for handling large input signal without distortion.

Because transformer outputs traditionally add "heft" to an audio signal, the company has designed the preamp with steel output transformers, lending a "vintage" flavor to the signal. Housed in a half rack space enclosure, the preamp delivers a healthy dose of gain and features individually switchable phantom power. A 10 dB output pad switch on each channel allows for perfectly matching downstream equipment if required and phase reverse switches are included.
