SPL GainStation 1

SPL GainStation 1

  • 60 V technology (125 dB dynamic at 30 dB gain)
  • Switchable input impedances (200 Ohm, 1.2 kOhm and 10 kOhm)
  • Adjustable high pass filter 12dB / 50Hz
  • 48V phantom power
Normally ships 5-9 days

The GainStation 1 is a hybrid preamplifier consisting of a discrete Class A transistor stage and tube stage. The hybrid design of the preamplifier combines the advantages of semiconductors (high dynamics with low distortion, low noise) with the musical qualities of tube sound (pleasant high/overtone spectrum, beautiful three-dimensionality).

The Class A transistor preamplifier is based on the DMPA operational amplifiers, which operate with an operating voltage of +/- 30 V.

The preamplifier has a Butterworth Hi Pass filter, polarity inversion, impedance selection, 48 V phantom power and a limiter.

  • Maximum output gain: 30 dBu
  • Output impedance: 75 Ω
  • Frequency range (Clean Gain 30 dB, Tube Gain off): 1 Hz – 310 kHz
  • Noise (A-weighted, Clean Gain 60 dB, Tube Gain off): -67.2 dBu
  • THD + N (Clean Gain 24d B, Tube Gain off, Output +6 dB, 20 Hz -22 kHz): 0.0005 %
  • Dynamic range: 130 dB
  • W x H x D (width x height incl. feet x depth): 106 x 122 x 271 mm
  • Unit weight: 2.65 kg
