Description

Earthworks 521

500 series modules are great for variety and the Earthworks 521 lets you add unparalleled clarity into the mix. Specially designed by Earthworks head honcho David Blackmer and offering a flat frequency response from 1Hz to 200kHz.

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 ZDT Preamps and distortion of less than 1 part per million. This exceptional level of performance is maintained over an extensive range of impedances applied to the input making the 521 suitable for practically any microphone – ribbon, dynamic or condenser.
