Siemens V74 gain mod?

from my understanding the V74 is a line pre w/ 15db of gain. I was just wondering if anyone out here knows if it can be modified for more gain so it can be used as a mic pre ?

yes they can be modded into mic pres, with gain, phantom, phase, whatever you want and are willing to pay for.

however having done exactly that, I can say although they dont suck, they are no V72. not really worth the hastle/cost

however they ARE great line amps

if you want a mic pre, get a V72 or V76, if you have a V74, use it for whats its great for, a line amp.

dont forget, a lot of modern dynamic and tube mics (that dont require 48V) have such high outputs the V74 works fine with them unmodded.
