Millennia TD-1 Twin Direct: The ultimate Direct Box?

Friday April 11, 2003. 07:58 PM, by Francois Déchery Audio Hardware > Millennia Music & Media Systems
Audio Hardware : Millennia TD-1 Twin Direct: The ultimate Direct Box? - macmusicMillennia announces the TD-1 Twin Direct Recording System with Twin Topology - Millennia's innovative merging of vacuum tube and discrete solid-state circuit topologies. Much more than an ordinary "direct box", Twin Direct offers instrument input (1/4"), line input (XLR), Speaker Soak input (1/4"), and optional HV-3 mic preamplifier (XLR) in a single half-width, road-hardened, rack-mountable chassis.

Twin Direct offers vacuum tube and discrete solid-state DI buffer amplifiers (switch selectable), 2 full range parametric EQ (20 Hz - 25 kHz), three input impedance settings (470K, 2M, 10M), and up to 35 dB of standard gain. Combine this with Millennia's acclaimed HV-3 microphone preamplifier (65 dB gain, optional) and TD-1 begins to look less like a direct box, and more like a feature rich analog "channel strip", akin to the STT-1 Origin. TD-1 main signal path is entirely "discrete" from input to output.

The TD-1 also offers nine different audio outputs and distribution points:
- REAMP Strat Guitar Simulation (1/4" phone)
- REAMP Les Paul Guitar Simulation (1/4" phone)
- Balanced Line Level Output (XLR)
- Unbalanced Line Level Output (XLR)
- Balanced Mic Level Output (XLR transformer-coupled)
- Balanced Line Level Output (1/4" phone)
- Unbalanced Line Level Output (1/4" phone)
- Headphone Output (1/4" phone with gain control)
- Direct "pass-through" Output (1/4" phone)

TD-1 also employs a number of convenient utility functions, including -20 dB balanced pad switch for all inputs, Signal Present and Overload indicators, phantom power switch with optional HV-3 microphone preamplifier, polarity reverse switching on all inputs, REAMP-only output polarity reversal (each output), direct-out buffer select, logic controlled switch mutes, dual stage power supply regulation, selectable worldwide mains powering (100V - 240V), side- or top-mount steel carrying handle, substantial rubber feet for stage and studio isolation, and built-in chassis fastening for mounting a stereo pair of TD-1 units into a standard 19" rack.

Ship date: may 2003
Suggested retail price: $1,395
Optional hv-3 microphone preamplifier: $400
