KMR Audio recently announced its exclusive dealership of American boutique manufacturer LaChapell Audio starting with the 583s 500-series valve mic preamp….
Handcrafted in Nashville, the LaChapell Audio 583s has been purposely built to add that distinctive valve warmth and character. Built to the highest standard, the 583s offers great performance and flexibility.
Using a dual-gain architecture with a feedback loop configuration, the 583s is capable of delivering clean or rich signal by simply turning the input gain and output level control. The LaChapell Audio 583s features a Jensen JT-15K input transformer coupled to a Cinemag CMOQ nickel alloy output transformer and superior balanced line drivers made by Burr-Brown and THAT Corporation to ensure an extra clean output stage.
The LaChapell Audio 583s comes with a JJ ECC803 vacuum tube which produces rich harmonics. However LaChapell Audio has made it really easy to experiment with different tubes offering easy access to the valve. Whether you want to try vintage Telefunken ECC83 valves or 1960’s RCA 12AX7 black plates, every option is here to let you tailor your sound.
The 583s is also works well alongside other modules within a 500-series rack with a fully enclosed chassis designed to prevent unwanted interference and help the direct cooling of the module.
