The Ascent One Class-A Mono Microphone Pre-Amplifier/DI from Phoenix Audio takes a modern approach to Class-A circuit design and delivers a wide range of tones without sacrificing the beloved vibe of true Class-A design. It can be used with all microphones including ribbons and dynamic mics to drive the output stage for a vast range of pure Class-A tones—from bold clarity to vintage warmth—in broadcast TV or recording studio applications.
Featuring a -15 dB input pad, LED gain metering, and push buttons for Hi-Pass Filter, Phase Reverse, and switchable 48V phantom power, the Ascent One microphone preamplifier offers a frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. Other features include XLR and TRS 1/4" DI input connectors, and XLR and TRS 1/4" output jacks on the rear panel. Additionally, the Vari-Filter control allows you to control and shape tones of all types.
