Hardware AES-NY: Mercury Recording Equipment Company - “Mercury D Series” G810 Rack


David Marquette and Mercury Recording Equipment Company have completely reinvented the 500 Module Rack inside and out. The Mercury D Series G810 is not just another piece of hardware, but a quantum leap ahead for a Recording Industry format, making the Mercury G810 the new benchmark in 500 racks.

The G810 is the new standard for reliability, stability and performance and allows engineers (as well as 500 Module manufactures) to get the most out of the format. The Mercury G810 provides a solid foundation with the best power structure and regulation using our proprietary Mercury Power Regulation Circuit, Mercury Soft Start Circuit and the robust Mercury PSU-1 Power Supply.

Mercury will have several Mercury D Series Modules (Classics and New Designs) and Mercury G8 Modules for slots 9 and 10 to improve the flexibility and add additional features to get even more out of your G810 Rack. The debut of the Mercury D Series G810 Rack is just the beginning of a new recording system from Mercury Recording Equipment Company and Proudly Made in the USA!

Does this mean we may expect 72 and 76 in 500 Format ?

Talked with David for a while Saturday AM. Really like his approach and ethos. Great to see guys like this "overbuilding" everything all in the USA. Wish I was in the market and needed a product of his.

Thanks Greg.

You can read more on the website next week. But here are the basic features and what sets it apart (below). We plan to ship in JAN 14 or sooner and prices will be announced prior to shipping first batch to dealers. Thanks for your interest in Mercury and the G810 Rack.

Cheers

Here are some of the Features of Mercury G810:

Mercury G810 power spec is 150% of the normal 500/VPR Spec. Custom, Low noise, linear, external power supply, designed for Professional Audio, in the Mercury D Series PSU-1.

Mercury G810 has individual power regulation per Channel. Mercury Power Regulation Circuit per Slot / Channel and Mercury Soft Start Circuit for powering up gently. The Mercury G810 is the only rack to have this feature. This keeps each channel isolated from the channel next to it and every channel in the rack!

Bulletproof construction: Studio Quality Construction yet Road worthy, Heavy Duty Steel chassis and Aluminum Ears. The G810 Motherboard (PCB) is completely shielded from all modules and other outside noise sources.

Connection Choices: Individual Gold Pin XLR connectors (Ch. 1-10) and convenient DB25 connectors (Ch. 1-8)

G810 Chain Switch (per channel): This switch allows simple, convenient, internal signal flow among modules.

G810 Link Switch, (per channel): This switch provides ‘Linking’ of modules that support that feature.

Custom Ground Lift Switch: Three modes of ground connection insure quiet operation in all environments.

Flexibility: Convertible between being rack mountable or free standing ‘Table Top’ portable configurations. The D Series PSU-1 Power Supply is also convertible between being rack mountable or free standing.

Tomteontour - thanks for the question. Mercury will have several D Series (500) modules coming soon. No Valve 72 or 76 modules, it is not really possible to do it 'right' in the 500 format. The original M72s and M76m are the only way to go for that sound. But we will have several new ideas and several "Classics" that will be part of the D Series line in 500 format. We started with the G810 Rack to fix the problems with with format, with better power (higher standard) and isolated / individual regulation per channel and will now move on to modules and much more.

Cheers

This new rack seems really great! Are the channel supplies isolated through galvanic means inside the rack?

Is the external power supply actually set up as 10 individual supplies?

What is the price premium over the other 500 racks?

Thanks!!!

This is exciting. Judging by the other Mercury products I'm sure what ever they have planned for the format will be exceptional.

The Chain and Link Switches are on the backplate (back panel) of the G810 Rack. You will be able to see photos on the Mercury web site in a few days @ Mercury Recording Equipment Company

Thornig - We will announce the 'street price' very soon and we are starting on first batch of D Series G810 racks now which should be shipping in 3-4 weeks. You can call your favorite dealer and get one pre-ordered in a week or so when the price is announced. Thank you for your interest.
