Millennia (Placerville, Calif.) announced the shipment of the 10,000th HV-3 microphone preamplifier, which was shipped last week as part of a larger order to acclaimed operatic vocalist Andrea Bocelli. Bocelli ordered 28 channels of HV-3 preamps and a number of STT-1 Origin units; he has used HV-3 mic preamps and other Millennia products for live orchestral performances and studio recordings for years.

Factory-stock HV-3D preamps, as used by the Academy Awards and Grammy Awards television broadcast and pre-records, employ 36-position, mil-spec, gold gain switching, Neutrik gold XLRs, extremely "stiff" and overdesigned toroid-based power supply, Neglex oxygen-free copper audio wiring, pure silver-plated individual Teflon power wiring (no ribbon looms), German-made ITT (one-million cycle) illuminated push-button switching, 3/8-inch-thick extruded and polished radius control panel, hand-machined aluminum knurl knobs, and components sourced from the finest manufacturers, such as Vishay, Wima, Beyschlag, Roederstein and Grayhill.
