Manufacturer Description: A Designs Audio is proud to introduce a new line of microphone pre-amplifiers for the 500 Series. These Pre-amplifiers are original designs stemming from our inspiration of the “Quad Eight Sound”. Each has its own unique character. Depending on which microphone you use, you will be able to open a world of color and sound to inspire you and your recordings.
The P-1, is a 500 Series Format of our highly successful Pacifica.
The A Designs “EM Series” is a twist on the P-1. Each color has its own sound. This was accomplished by using different custom wound output and input transformers.
