Thats what I was assuming. Does it have enough gain to make a 57 scream?

I love the digital gain control on this thing.

Clean and accurate is good... But there are many forms of clean and accurate.

Any comparisons would be cool. MSS-10, Hardy, Sytek

Hi all,

I have revised the unit to accomodate upto 70dB gain (it was 65dB). I have made some other revisions as well. How does is compare? I have just placed a pdf file on my site under (direct link):

http://www.lavryengineering.com/lavr...wforum.php?f=2

Alternativly it is under http://www.lavryengineering.com
then go to forum
then click on tutorials

The subject matter is "LavryBlue MicPre". It is a pdf file with plots and some explanations.
Of course there is a lot more to say, but I did address the main factors.

The idea is to have the higest quality for low cost.

Mr. Lavry, would you consider adding a 130v option on your preamp?

There are very few users of 130V, so I did not consider it an issue. But I do have a few jumpers inside the unit, and one of the jumper can be used to disable the internal 48V phantom supply. I put it there because someone wanted to be able to use some tube style vintage mics, and the mics he mentioned are powered externally, therefore such mics require a passive load (no phantom).

I do not know if those type mics use a 48V internal phantom (it may be 60V or 130V or what not).

I know people that experimented with very high phantoms, up to 200V (!). But I tried to aim at the general market, not at far and few applications. I would do 130V if there was some sonic improvement and a general need for it.

(I have the flexibility to include a rear panel switch for phantom on/off. But at this point, I would rather not do a one of a kind modification. My unit sells for much less then all the high end units...)
