Grace Design M101 Microphone PreampGrace Design M101 Microphone Preamp
In 2000, the Grace Design model 101 microphone preamp helped fuel a revolution. When people took professional recording into their own hands, it was there with all of the quality and performance of a high-end mic preamplifier, but with a price that made it available to the masses. Eight years later, and the cause moves forward with the newly redesigned m101 preamp.Maintaining Grace Design pedigree throughout, the m101 employs balanced, transformerless, transimpedance circuit topology. With incredible bandwidth and headroom, the m101 is natural, musical and detailed, allowing engineers and musicians to consistently record vibrant, amazing tracks.The m101 is equipped with a redesigned universal switching power supply that’s dead quiet and accepts input voltages from 100 to 240V AC. The front panel is a tough black anodized/laser etched black, which ensures legibility and usability in varying light conditions. And all preamp functions have a dedicated indicator LED, including the 48V phantom power and HPF switch.Built in as standard is Grace’s unique Ribbon Mic Mode, which bypasses the input decoupling capacitors, raises the input impedance from 8.1kÃ?Â? to 20kÃ?Â?, and defeats the 48V phantom power, preventing damage to delicate ribbon mic elements. Ribbon mics, you’re welcome.The gain range is 10-75dB, including the additional +10dB of gain available with the output trim control. This provides ample gain for use of any type of microphone in any recording situation. The gain control is a precision gold-plated, 12-position switch, and the circuit path is built with 0.5% metal film resistors.Included is a HI-Z input on the front panel. Rear panel I/O options include both balanced TRS and unbalanced TS 1/4 outputs, along with the standard XLR balanced out and XLR microphone in.Equally at home amplifying a vintage condenser mic or a plugged-in acoustic guitar, the m101 delivers the kind of high fidelity performance prFast and musical transimpedance architectureUpdated audio path with 0.5% precision metal film resistorsNew 12 position gold-plated rotary gain switchHigh performance output line driver amplifier and HPF amplifierRibbon mic mode (also great for dynamic mics)- Relay bypass of phantom power decoupling capacitors, increased input impedance, and 48V lockoutWider 10-75dB gain rangeEnhanced RFI interference suppressionThree output connectors: XLR balanced, TRS balanced and 1/4 unbalancedBombproof laser-etched black anodized front panelSealed gold contact relay for Hi-Z input switchingBuilt in power supply / no wall-wartLed indicators for +48V, Ribbon mode, and HPFFive year warranty on parts and laborMade in the USA
