TK Audio DP-1 : Dual Preamp

Friday April 3, 2009. 12:09 PM, by Nantho MusikMesse 2009 > Audio Hardware > TK Audio
Audio Hardware : TK Audio DP-1 : Dual Preamp - macmusicTK Audio unveils the DP-1, a new dual mic preamp.

The new DP-1 preamp is a hybrid between vintage and modern circuits. Germanium stage, silicon transistors and integrated circuits, all in the same box. DP-1's various sound-characters extends over several decades, the germanium sound from the mid 60's, British class-A from the early 70's and a more modern tone from the 80's and 90's.

The input stage is built around a Swedish Lundahl transformer and an IC that operates in class-A. The preamp section is followed by a germanium unity-gain stage for coloration. Finally the DP-1 has two different output stages that you can switch between, a transformerless IC-based outputstage or a discret transformer-balanced class-A stage, built around a heavy Carnhill output-transformer. The IC-based output stage is less colored. In the vintage class-A mode the sound has a fat, punchy low-end with more mid character, the germanium mode will add even more harmonics to the sound.
