OVERVIEW

A 500-series preamp and DI to sweeten your signal

This mono, 500-series Preamp and DI takes a modern approach to Class-A circuit design, delivering a wide range of tones without sacrificing the beloved, vibe-y aspects of its Class-A circuits. The unique DRS circuit can go from ultra-clean sounds suitable for audiophile recordings all the way to the warm, saturated tones reminiscent of the UK's most heralded vintage designs. Versatility and superior sound have made the DRS Preamp/DI a top-tier choice for engineers around the world and a modern-day classic.
The DRS’s electronically-balanced, transformerless mic input circuit delivers fast transients and the full frequency spectrum, while still delivering the full, warm and smooth characteristics that make engineers love Class-A mic preamps. Boldly outperforming transformer-based designs in both the frequency response and slew rate, the DRS delivers articulate, punchy and full-bodied input signals, allowing you to drive the output stage for a vast range of pure Class-A tones—from bold clarity to vintage warmth, and everything in-between.
Because you're working with a clean, robust, electronically-balanced input signal, the DRS Mic Preamp/DI makes dialing in your exact sound easy, intuitive and quick.Working with the familiar stepped input gain control and the -30dB pad against the variable output fader, you can dial in your preferred tones without having to consider an overly complex gain structure. Like so many other engineers, you'll find yourself reaching for the DRS Mic Preamp/DI over and over again to reliably deliver a vast array of outstanding sounds for any instrument or voice you're recording.
