About

Avalon Design VT-737Avalon VT-737SP Tube Mono Direct Signal Path Microphone Preamplifier
The Avalon Vt 737sp Mono Mic Pre/Compressor/EQ is a combination tube preamp, opto-compressor and sweep equalizer, with output level and VU metering in 2 rackspaces. Balanced mic, front-panel instrument DI, and balanced line inputs. Class A preamp uses 2 cascaded, dual vacuum-tube triodes configured with minimum negative feedback. The Avalon Vt 737sp has a high-gain switch, high-pass filter, and hardwire relay bypass.

AVALON VT-737 FEATURES

The Avalon VT-737 features a combination of TUBE preamplifiers, optocompressor, sweep equalizer, output level and VU metering in a 2U space. The VT-737 preamplifier has three input selections: 1. Transformer balanced microphone input, +48v phantom selection. 2. Instrument DI high source input with jack located on front panel. 3. Balanced line input, discrete high-level Class A. The high-performance preamplifier utilizes two cascaded, dual vacuum tube triodes configured with minimum negative feedback. A high gain switch boosts the overall gain of the preamplifier. The four high quality tubes are configured as singled ended anode coupled followers. A passive-variable high pass filter and hard-wire relay bypass completes the input signal conditioning. The phase reverse relay is available on all three inputs.
Special spectral control including de-ess is available with the dual sweep mid EQ to sidechain switch. The EQ section can be flipped pre or post the opto-compressor via a front panel switch for alternate effects and tone shaping. Two VT-737s can be linked via a rear panel link cable for stereo tracking. The compressor bypass is a sealed silver relay for the most direct signal path.

Equalizer

The VT-737 equalizer utilizes 100% discrete, Class A-high-voltage transistors for optimum sonic performance. The high and low frequency bands provide the smooth characteristics of an all passive design, while the dual mid bands include variable frequency and switched Q-width selection. The enhanced range of the mid bands is extended into the high and low bands by the use of X10 frequency multipliers. The bypass switch incorporates a sealed silver relay for the most direct signal path. When the EQ to sidechain is engaged, the high-low EQ remains in the audio path for tone enhancement. The output level control provides a variable control of the overall signal path. The output amplifier utilizes another dual triode vacuum tube driving a 100% discrete, Class A, high-current, balanced and DC coupled low noise output amplifier.

Opto-Compressor

The opto-compressor features a minimum signal path design with twin class A vacuum tube triodes for gain matching. The optical attenuator acts as a simple passive level controller. Full dynamic control from soft compression to hard-knee limiting can be achieved with threshold, ratio-compression, attack and release controls plus gain reduction selection on the large VU meter.
