Amazing Tube Pre for Your 500 Series Rack!Based on the legendary 992EG, the LaChapell Audio Model 583s is the world's first 500 series-format vacuum tube microphone preamplifier. This preamp uses a traditional single-end configuration, starting with a Jensen JT-115k input transformer, Burr-Brown & THAT balanced line drivers, and a CineMag CMOQ nickel alloy output transformer - an overall topology similar to the 992EG. Another great thing about the Model 583s is that you get easy access to its 12AX7 vacuum tube, so you can experiment with different vintage tubes. The result is not only a microphone preamp that has a timelessly deep quality, but one you can customize to taste. If you're looking for a way to add extra warmth and amazing character to your 500 series rack, you won't find anything else quite like the Model 583s.

But,after weeks search from so many forum, I decided to call Michael Grebe from Sweetwater to purchased. He sent me one last week(together with API 512c),and I was blown away. Everything sounds huge through it. Vocal was great,,guitar,kick,snare,you name it. Another surprise, it's so quiet for tube pre. Kind of clean sound,but if you turn hard the input,sound so dirty in a great way. I love the character, quietness, and the way it's looks.
As I typing this review, my second 583s just sent by sweetwater yesterday.
I have the feeling my LA-610 with start collecting the dust in near future. close [-]
by Zach Purcell fromThis is a great pre for vocals! It is very warm and fat when you kick up the input past half way.

The only reason i give this a 4.5 is that after three quarters or even a little more on the input it just simply starts to distort a tad to resemble more tuby sound but i find it just overkill. But the sweet spot is between half and 3/4ths the way turned up on input and it is wonderful and rich.
