Earthworks 521 ZDT 500-Series Microphone Preamp

The Earthworks 521 ZDT 500-Series Microphone Preamp brings the exacting standards of the ZDT Zero Distortion Preamplifiers to the convenient 500 series format, providing a pristine amplification option to the 500 series rack.

The Earthworks 521 ZDT 500-Series Microphone Preamp is based on the ZDT Preamp technology designed by David Blackmer and features switchable phantom power, polarity invert, and peak amplitude clip detection, just as in the original 1021 Single Channel ZDT Preamp. The transformerless output stage of the Earthworks 521 will easily drive long cable runs without loss of quality. Transparent gain is switchable from 5dB to 60dB in 5dB steps.

The Earthworks microphone preamplifier topology provides outstanding common mode rejection, excellent overload margin and an incredibly low noise floor, combined with the ultra-wide bandwidth of the Earthworks 521 ZDT Preamps (1Hz to 200kHz ±0.5dB) and distortion of less than 1 part per million (0.0001%). This exceptional level of performance is maintained over an extensive range of impedances applied to the input, making the Earthworks 521 suitable for practically any microphone – ribbon, dynamic or condenser.
