    THE End Game for Pristine Preamps

    I know of few elite chefs who order pre-seasoned ingredients; by the same token, I prefer to start with as perfect a representation of the actual performance as possible, and sculpt as necessary during mix. If you're of the same mind, and you're looking for preamps to fit the bill, then you can pretty much stop looking, because this is your desert island box right here. Nothing I've ever heard sounds nearly as true to life as this preamp does, and be it a hot condenser, a picky ribbon, or anything between, you will hear the true character of the mic you choose with this preamp better than with anything else you can buy. If my studio had nothing but these I'd be in hog heaven.

    A Masterpiece by David Blackmer

    Having used the Millennia, Grace and Benchmark preamps this Earthworks unit is in a league of its own. It's as true to the source as they come. This thing transmits such a startling 3D image it's almost haunting. It's dead quiet and has gobs of headroom and gain. The beauty is that the 1024 delivers the precise characteristics of what ever mic you hook it up to. Of course paired with an Earthworks mic the combo serves up a vividness that has to be heard to be believed. If I ever see fit to add coloration into my mix I would rather start with the cleanest and truest signal possible and then process after for effect. Without a doubt the finest preamp I've ever owned. A masterpiece by the legendary David Blackmer.
