HACIENDA LABS - HL 169
"We need a clear and warm preamp that can become fat and fit all types of mics perfectly, including ribbon"
This challenge eventually led us to combine the precision of input Studer (Neutrik transformer and discrete circuit) with the beautiful Neve presence and output power (Carnhill output transformer inside).
The result is explosive! Incorporating a smooth and finely adjustable low-cut, the HL169 preamp serves the musicality and intent of your takes and a complete mastery of recording levels through the attenuation potentiometer.
Need to use extreme wide saturation of the HL169 without saturating the input of your recorder on a snare drum for example? It's possible !
Add to that an instrument input (Hi-Z), a pad (-30dB), a precision gain control (two available levels, 67dB in all) and you have the Swiss Army knife preamp.
Precision, musicality, versatility and character were the key words to develop the HL169.
