Great River ME-1NV - Single Channel Mic Pre
The Great River ME-1NV is a single channel microphone pre-amplifier that modernizes and improves upon classic British design. The ME-1NV is in desktop format but is also rack-mountable. Like all Great River products the ME-1NV features expert craftsmanship with a transparent and vintage harmonic sound.
The ME-1NV has two discrete Class-A gain stages which both have an individual meter on the front panel. The front panel of the Great River ME-1NV also features a DI input jack which is routed via a FET and BJT buffer through the input transformer.
The ME-1NV has an internal power supply which can operate on any power grid with a simple change of fuse and switch of the voltage selector. The Great River ME-1NV will truly bring out the best in every microphone and instrument you use.
