First Eight-Channel Microphone Preamplifier featuring 120V Technology
The Crescendo is the first microphone preamplifier which operates with an internal operating voltage of 120V. Making it absolutely unique, because with the 120V Technology it is nearly impossible to overdrive this preamplifier. The Crescendo excels with absolute signal fidelity and clarity. Rediscover your microphones, they have never been amplified like this.
SPL’s proprietary “SUPRA Op-Amp” is at the core of its 120V Technology and featured in the new 8- channel Crescendo. The discrete buildup of the high-voltage amplifiers creates an internal operating voltage of +/- 60V, allowing the Crescendo to provide unprecedented technical performance. Crescendo is capable of amplifying the fastest transients, the finest sonic details, and an extremely wide frequency range, very cleanly, and almost without any distortion. Each of the eight pre-amplifier sections of Crescendo provides individual gain control (Mic Gain), its own VU meter, a phase reversal switch, phantom power, a -20dB PAD switch, and a reduction for the display of the level on the VU meter (VU -10). Crescendo offers 18dB to 70dB of pre-amplifier gain, or when using the -20dB pad for extremely high-level signals, the pre-amplifier range shifts to -2dB to 50dB of control.
