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.

About Millennia Music & Media
As a classical music recording company founded in the 1980s, Millennia Music & Media Systems has grown to become one of the worlds respected manufacturers of critical audio recording products. Early in our history, we began designing front-end analog recording equipment to improve the sonic quality of our work. Word spread and, before long, audio engineers worldwide were ordering our hand-built gear, and waiting months to get it. Fortunately, todays wait is not as long.

With over twenty-thousand HV-3 microphone preamplifier channels installed, Millennia continues to set sonic precedent in solid-state and vacuum tube preamps, equalizers, compressors, mixers, and recording channels. With numerous industry awards ? seven TEC Award nominations, six PAR Excellence and Reviewers Pick awards, EQ Magazines Blue Ribbon Award, and two Class A awarded products on Stereophile Magazines Recommended Products guide ? an extensive owners register of leading audio professionals (see Key User List on our web site), and a reputation for musical realism second to none, we believe you wont find a more transparent range of professional audio products anywhere, at any price.

HV-3 microphone preamplifiers are used for recording well over half of all Hollywood feature films scores (Titanic, Star Wars I and 2, Tarzan, Forrest Gump, National Treasure, Contact, AI, Armageddon, etc..). Leading acoustic recording companies, such as Telarc, Sony Classical, Harmonia Mundi, DMP, Nimbus, Chesky, BMG, Skywalker, and scores of others rely on HV-3 preamplifiers. The major symphony orchestras and operas of the world, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Berlin, Cleveland, Seattle, La Scala, Israel, Venezuela, Prague, Baltimore, New York, and National (DC), employ HV-3 mic preamps. Top live performers like Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Andreas Bocelli, Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, Blue Man Group, and The Three Tenors use hundreds of HV-3 preamp channels in concert, as do the Academy Awards and Grammy Awards live broadcsts.

Modern professional recording products are major investments which must be carefully designed for longevity and non-obsolescence. With mastering-grade sonics and specifications, military build quality, and a pedigree in the highest tradition of audio excellence, the HV-3 is destined to remain contemporary well into the new millennium.
