Millennia HV-3C Preamplifier Now Shipping(March 21, 2005)
HV-3C offers two channels of Millennias acclaimed HV-3 microphone preamplifiers in a rugged 1U-19 steel rack case. As a successor to Millennias HV-3B stereo mic preamp, the HV-3C adds many desirable new features, including an improved power supply, newly designed front panel, and a digital output option.
The HV-3C employs 36 stepped gain positions with 1.5dB gain steps. Its predecessor, the HV-3B stereo micamp, offered 36-step gain as a $300 option. High resolution 36 step gain control is now standard on the HV-3C with no additional cost. The new front-panel design includes a 3/8 thick mirror gloss black aluminum face plate with hand-machined aluminum knobs and illuminated push-button switching. HV-3Cs power supply has also been improved for enhanced performance and longevity.
HV-3C is ready to accept a factory-upgraded 24 bit, 192 kHz Analog to Digital POW-r Converter, which is planned for delivery later in 2005. HV-3C is a discrete-hybrid design which provides for optional DPA 130 volt microphone inputs, as well as DC inputs, giving HV-3C an entirely DC-coupled signal path from input to output, without servo amplifiers.
Millennias made-in-USA build quality is apparent, including silver-teflon power wiring, Neglex oxygen-free audio wiring, and components sourced from the finest manufacturers (Grayhill, Roederstein, Wima, Beyshlag, etc..), all part of what leading engineers call todays most musically transparent microphone preamplifier. The HV-3C is sold through professional audio retailers at $1,995 SRP.
