Grace Design M801 8 Channel Preamplifier
The Grace Design M801 is an 8 channel microphone preamplifier that delivers unmatched audio performance with massive headroom and ultra-wide bandwidth which result in an open, musical character.
Each channel offers 48V phantom, phase reverse and a 20dB pad. Gain controls are Grace Designs finest 24 position gold contact rotary switches, wired with 1% metal film resistors for maximum audio performance and perfect reset-ability. All components, active and passive, are selected for pure audio performance and long term reliability.
A standard feature of the Grace Design M801 is the popular Ribbon mic mode which shifts the preamplifier’s entire gain range up 10dB, while deactivating 48V phantom power, optimizing input impedance and bypassing the decoupling capacitors.
Grace have also added a secondary output for each individual channel which allows you to send the signal to a secondary recorder, workstation or console which can be extremely useful when working with outboard equipment and you dont want to fully commit to the sound recorded.
