CS-1 This Product is No Longer Available. All of the CS-1's main signal path amplifiers are Class A discrete Junction FET (JFET amplifiers). There are no IC opamps, bipolar transistors, or audio transformers used in the CS-1. When used with line level signals or with non-phantom powered microphones, there are no capacitors in the main signal path of the CS-1. When phantom power is required, a high quality capacitor is switched into the signal path to block the phantom power from the CS-1's input stage amplifiers. This DC coupling of non-phantom powered microphones is ideal for use with high quality ribbon microphones.
