- Benchmark PRE420 – This 4-channel microphone preamplifier has an integrated stereo mix bus and stereo/mono solo bus in a sleek, 1RU chassis.

The PRE420’s circuitry provides ultra-low distortion over a wide 500kHz bandwidth, while maintaining RF-immunity in the most demanding environments. The PRE420 is equipped with Benchmark’s exclusive CMF1 RF-filter, which has been extensively tested and proven in Benchmark’s MPS mic pre series by experienced studio and remote recording engineers in heavy RF fields!
