GML 8302 Transformerless Microphone Preamp
GML Microphone Preamplifiers are world-renowned for their life-like realism, high resolving power, and reference-standard transparency. The Series II models are available as 2 channel ”8302” and 4 channel ”8304” versions. Our continuing research and review of up-to-date componentry maintains the legendary transparency that we’re well-known for. The GML 8302 and the 8304 Series II have been reconfigured with front-panel-mounted phantom power and phase reverse switches, and the +48v phantom supply has been completely redesigned resulting in lower noise. Their all-discrete, bipolar transistor circuit topologies are completely transformerless with no FETs, ICs, or electrolytic capacitors in the signal path. Even the outputs are direct-coupled with time-proven active servos that remove DC without adding any artificial color. 10dB to 65dB of gain is front panel selectable on the front panel in precise 5dB steps. A +24dBv clip indicator warns of any impending overloads. Both GML 8302 and 8304 will occupy 1U rack space. Both versions ship with an external power supply (GML Model 8355) and a 5pin XLR power cable. As always the model 8302 can be upgraded up to 4 channels later on.
