500-Series version of the Golden Age Pre-73.
The Golden Age Pre-573 MKII is a refreshing update, with a lower noise floor and greater dynamic range. The 500-Series Pre-73 MKII provides a low cost alternative to microphone pre-amplification featuring a fully discrete signal path by utilizing separate transformers for the balanced mic input, the line input and the output. Similar to the circuit you would find in the Neve 1073 preamp/EQ with a remarkably similar output.
The versatile sound of the Golden Age Pre-573 MKII works incredibly with most sound sources and in most genres. The Golden Age Project Pre-573 MKII has a maximum gain of 80 dB on the mic input and the gain range on the Line input is -20 to + 10 dB.
