Cranborne Audio 500 Series Preamplifier module
The Very Best Of Both Worlds
Vintage, Warm, and Coloured from the ground up. Designed by the director of engineering, Edward Holmes, Camden 500 was created to be the ultimate recording front-end for modern studios and withstand the rigours of modern workflow and production techniques. Designed to excel with any input source, Camden 500 features a completely original, custom-designed preamp topology that achieves stunning low-noise and low-distortion performance and frequency/phase linearity at any gain setting from unity to 68.5dB.
Stepped Gain Control
Camden 500 features a premium, 12-way switch gain control that applies up to 68.5dB of clean, transparent preamp gain in 5.5dB steps. This makes it easy to recall gain settings and easy to match the gain of two Camden 500's for stereo applications.
With carefully selected modern components, any two Camden preamps are completely stereo matched to within 0.1dB. Every Camden preamp also passes through a rigorous frequency response test at the factory that ensures it performs the same as the last.
Progressive-slope High Pass Filter
Camden's high pass filter features a progressive slope where low end is rolled off initially at around 6dB/octave and then increases to 12dB for the lowest octave - preserving the low end you want, and cutting what you don't.
3-Way Input Type Switch
Tailored input impedance and headroom for Mic, Line, and Hi-Z sources mean punchy and full-range line recording with +26.5dBu of input headroom as well as alive and natural sounding DI'd instruments with it's unique BJT design and 1.5M Ohm input impedance.
