Vintech 273 Two-Channel Microphone Preamp & Equalizer

The Vintech 273 Preamp & Equalizer is the perfect choice for amateur and professional alike! Whoever needs a great pair of preamps and just enough eq on-board to "tilt" some brightness or beef into the sound will be well served by the classic sound and easy to use layout of this unit.

Vintech 273 Two-Channel Microphone Preamp & Equalizer Details

The Vintech Audio model 273 is the perfect choice for amateur and professional alike! Whoever needs a great pair of preamps and just enough eq on-board to "tilt" some brightness or beef into the sound will be well served by the classic sound and easy to use layout of this unit. The Vintech model 273 starts with the very same Class A preamps in the Neve 1073 module and then provides "essential eq" on each channel. These equalizers are two high and low shelving eq's per each channel with two frequency selection points for each, allowing you surprisingly flexible tone-shaping for the sound you're recording.

The 273 is great for artists or recordists looking to get the great sound of Vintech in a stereo-pair for the front-end of the recording (or live sound) system without having to resort to separate units. Plus, the Line Inputs allow you to access the EQ for sweetening tracks you have already recorded. The onboard DI instrument inputs on each channel, make the 273 one of Front End Audio's recommendations for keyboard or synth players looking to negate the sterility of their instruments' outputs for recording or sending to the front of house for the gig. Check the 273 out on kick and snare! It's a great upgrade for that, alone. But, it's equally good on everything. Vintech, again, provides a winning solution for better sound.
