U1126 / U1127 / U1140 / U1141



The U1126 is a compact high quality microphone preamplifier designed for professional use. It contains two channels optimized to process signals from low impedance dynamic or electrostatic microphones.
When required, a 12 V or 48 V phantom power supply can be applied to the inputs.

Thanks to a single rotary switch, gain can be set from 10 dB to 60 dB for both channels by 5 dB steps.

The internal reference oscillator allows accurate setting of the nominal reccording level.

The low impedance of the transformerless balanced outputs allows the use of long cables with no signal degradation, and thus to locate this small sized unit close to the microphones.
The U1126 is the ideal complement of DAT recorders or Betacam cameras, for which it constitutes an alternative to state of the art input stages. The exceptional bandwidth, the absence of phase alteration, the high signal to noise ratio as well as the precision of the gain settings make the U1126 a unique candidate for digital recording and acoustic measurements.
