The Trident 80B 500-Series Preamp is the perfect solution for those seeking the legendary sound of the Trident Series 80B console in the 500 Series Format.

Looking for a classic mic preamp with modern 500 Series convenience? Look no further than the 80B-500 Series Preamp – a faithful recreation of the legendary Trident Series 80B console preamp from the early 1980s. With a Lundahl transformer-coupled microphone preamp and electronically balanced line input, the preamp boasts a wide frequencey range and accommodates a variety of signal levels with ease. Additionally, a high-quality Lundahl output transformer ensures exceptional sound quality. With its LED meter display, the 80B-500 Series Preamp is an essential tool for any recording studio. 

The 80B-500 Series Preamp features a unique design that can handle signal levels from -60dBu to as high as +15dBu without the need for a separate pad switch. Its smooth gain adjustment, particularly at high signal levels, sets it apart from other designs that tend to have a cramped level adjustment at the end of the control. And with near-theoretical minimum noise figures and an extremely fast transient response, you can be confident that your recordings will be crystal-clear and distortion-free. With a frequency response that extends to above 40kHz, the 80B-500 Series Preamp is perfect for use with high-quality condenser microphones. But it also brings out the best in dynamic and ribbon microphones, thanks to its high gain and low noise. This is particularly useful when working with ribbon microphones, which often have an inherently low output level.

In addition to its unique design, the 80B-500 Series Preamp also includes a range of features that make it an indispensable tool for recording engineers and home studio enthusiasts. These features include a high-quality transformer-coupled microphone amplifier, 48-volt switchable Phantom Power, a high-quality Output transformer, an electronically balanced Line Input amplifier, separate Microphone & Line level controls, a front-facing (Hi Z) ¼” Line Input, a variable Low Pass Filter (LPF), a variable High Pass Filter (HPF), a switchable Phase control (Polarity), and an Output meter LED display.
