Wes Audio DUE-PRE

Preamp circuit is switchable between two amps: RED and GREEN
  • Overview:

    RED mode is a British classic style preamp (1073) and GREEN is an American vintage style preamp (discrete opamp). Both preamps have unique sonic textures known as a best classical sound preamps.

    Carnhill transformers are responsible for matching impedance and de/symmetrization circuits. Preamp is loaded with two PADs: IN 20dB PAD and OUT 8dB PAD which allows to saturate both preamp and output transformer.

    Additionally DUE-PRE has front input XLR Combo socket which can be used in both ways: as a mic input and as a instrumental input. Instrumental input is a high impedance input of which signal feeds input transformer through FET transistor. Module can draw up to 5W of power.



    – High quality Grayhill gain switch
    – 64dB of gain (preamps are matched with 0.5dB accuracy)
    – Canrhill in/out transformers
    – 20dB input PAD
    – 8dB output PAD (allowing saturation of both preamp and transformer)
    – Polarity Reverse switch
    – +48V phantom power
    – Fornt autosense XLR mic
    – Hiz Fet DI front input (the signal passes through the input transformer)
    – LED VU meter
