Delivers authentic British '73-style sonics

This 8-channel mic pre is bolstered by exclusive custom-designed Carnhill input and output transformers, along with tantalum and Styroflex capacitors. In the end, you not only get a generous 80dB of gain, you also get the juice, vibe, and feel of a vintage '73.
Complete with pro features
All eight of the Super 8's pres include +48V phantom power, a Line button for line-level signals, a Phase button for polarity reverse, and a low-cut filter that produces a -3dB cut at 80Hz. Also, the microphone preamp's first channels are equipped with a lo-Z button to accommodate low-impedance signals, a -20dB pad, a JFET DI, and a fully sweepable low-cut filter. One thing's for sure: the Heritage Audio Super 8 will never leave you wanting.
Premium 24-bit/192kHz A/D converter
Thanks to the Super 8's top-quality A/D conversion, you'll find integrating this microphone preamp with your studio a piece of cake. And with ADAT, S/PDIF, and AES/EBU onboard, compatibility won't be an issue. This 24-bit analog-to-digital converter offers selectable internal sampling frequencies from 44.1kHz to 192kHz, plus it can be sync'd externally via word clock. The Super 8 includes a per-channel switchable path for the converter, enabling you to send a preamplified signal to your DAW directly from its corresponding input, or send a signal from an external source. This lets you send a preamplified signal out to another processor, then return it to the Super 8 for A/D conversion.
