The Black Lion Audio B173 mkII Microphone Preamp uses the same Cinemag input and output transformers as their B173 Quad! That means a whopping 70dB of gain, a revamped gain stage, and a lower noise floor for cleaner, lower distortion sound. A front panel D.I. delivers a harmonically rich tone to guitars, keyboards, and synthesizers, and stepped input gain and variable output attenuation allow for perfect control over transformer saturation.

Add the sound and style of the 1073 to your home studio at a great price! The Black Lion B173 mkII is sure to be a wonderful addition to your production setup.
