Millennia (Pleasant Valley, Calif.) introduced its TD-1 Twin Direct Recording System with Twin Topology, which merges vacuum tube and discrete solid-state circuit topologies. Twin Direct offers instrument input (1/4-inch), line input (XLR), Speaker Soak™ input (1/4-inch) and optional HV-3 mic preamplifier (XLR) in a single half-width, road-hardened, rack-mountable chassis.

Other feaures include full-range parametric EQ (20 Hz to 25 kHz), three input-impedance settings (470k, 2M, 10M) and up to 35 dB of standard gain. Combined with Millennia’s HV-3 microphone preamplifier (65dB gain, optional), and the TD-1 can be used as an analog channel strip. A Millennia-designed DI transformer is also included, offering 100% galvanically isolated mic-level DI output. The new DIT-01 transformer exhibits nearly flat frequency response from 3 Hz to 300 kHz. Rounding out Twin Direct’s feature set are individual input, output and earth ground lift switches, along with internal jumpers that offer various points of ground "isolation" (resistive and capacitive lifts).

TD-1 also employs a number of utility functions, including -20dB balanced pad switch for all inputs, signal present and overload indicators, phantom power switch with optional HV-3 microphone preamplifier, polarity reverse switching on all inputs, REAMP-only output polarity reversal (each output), direct-out buffer select, logic-controlled switch mutes, dual stage power volts to 240 volts), side- or top-mount steel carrying handle, substantial rubber feet for stage and studio isolation, available padded Cordura-nylon "gig" bag, and built-in chassis fastening for mounting a stereo pair of TD-1 units into a standard 19-inch rack.

MSRP: $1,395; optional HV-3 Mic Pre: $400; optional Platinum Crackle finish: $300; and cordura nylon padded gig bag: $300. See the Millennia Website for additional technical specifications at
