GOLDEN AGE Pre-73 MK III

  • Brand: GOLDEN AGE
  • Item ID: SKU-938
$559.00

Golden Age Project Pre-73 MK III

The PRE-73 is the first one-channel low-cost preamp on the market that is using a fully discrete signal path with three separate transformers for the balanced mic input, the line input and the output. The circuit is very similar to the classical preamp section of the Neve 1073 pre/eq module with a corresponding sound character that is warm, punchy, sweet and musical. This classical sound has been heard on countless recordings through the years and it is a versatile sound that works very well on most sound sources and in most genres. The PRE-73 ...

GOLDEN AGE PREQ73

  • Brand: GOLDEN AGE
  • Item ID: SKU-3082
$599.00

Golden Age Project RPREQ73

The PREQ-73 is a one-channel vintage style microphone-, line- and instrument preamplifier with a two band shelving equalizer offering a smooth and effective sound shaping.

The signal path uses only discrete components like resistors, capacitors and transistors. The line and microphone input and the line output are transformer balanced, using three different transformers, each one optimized for its purpose. The fully floating output can drive a level of at least +26 dBu into a load as low as 600 Ohms.

This is the way audio components were built before integrated circuits became available. The subjective sound ...

GOLDEN AGE R1 MK3 Active

  • Brand: GOLDEN AGE
  • Item ID: SKU-941
$359.00

Golden Age Project R1 MK3 Active

The R1 Active MKIII is a very cool mic that combines the best of two worlds; the warmth of a ribbon and the stability of a F.E.T. buffer ampilier. This means that you can use the R1 Active MKIII with long cables and virtually any pre-amp featuring 48V phantom power. A clean and clear sound, yet warm and punchy is what the R1 Active MKIII will deliver in most cases. We love it on drums, as an ambience mic or in pairs for O.H. pickup, but it sounds great on most ...

  • Item ID: SKU-1804
$799.00

Golden Age Project Pre-73 DLX

The PRE-73 DLX is a one-channel vintage style microphone-, line- and instrument preamplifier. The signal path uses only discrete components like resistors, capacitors and transistors. The line and microphone input and the line output are transformer balanced, using three different transformers, each one optimized for its purpose.
This is the way audio components were built before integrated circuits became available. The subjective sound quality delivered by vintage equipment is often prefered over the one delivered by modern units, a situation that is even more obvious now when music is recorded with clean-sounding digital audio ...

The Golden Age Project PRE-573 is a one width module that has the sound and the features that made the PRE-73 so successful, and a few additional ones. The circuit still uses the preamp and output section from the classic 1073-module, adapted to work in the 500 series rack format. It has a total gain range from -15 to +80 dB. The 10 – 70 dB range is handled by a turn switch and there is a separate toggle switch to select an additional 5 or 10 dB gain. The input can be configured to ...

GOLDEN AGE PRE-73 JR

  • Brand: GOLDEN AGE
  • Item ID: SKU-3369
$359.00

Golden Age Project PRE-73

The Golden Age Project PRE-73 Jr is the little brother to our big seller, the PRE-73. It uses the same discrete (no IC´s) signal path with a transformer balanced in- and output.

In order to be able to offer this classic and musical sound character at an even more affordable price point, we did scale down on some features that is seldom used. 

All the things needed for making great sounding recordings are there and the smaller format makes it possible to mount four units in our 19-inch rack kit, the UNITE MKII.

The LA-2A (tube version) and LA-3A (solid state version) are some truly classic compressors / leveling amplifiers. Having been used for decades on countless recordings, they are a perfect example of vintage designs that never goes out of favor. At the core of both products is the T4 electro-optical attenuator with its unique sound and compression characteristics and a very smooth, natural and program dependent operation. Add to that the easy of use with only two main controls, GAIN and PEAK REDUCTION and the wonderful sound of the fully discrete signal path and the transformers.
