SPL announced the availability of the GainStation preamplifier in an 8-channel version. Each channel of the GainStation 8 provides an independent solid-state preamplifier with 63 dB of gain and a tube preamplifier stage with 26 dB of gain in a studio-standard, 2U/19-inch-rack format.

In addition to its fully discrete Class-A design, the GainStation 8 runs on a 60-volt rail, effectively doubling its power supply and thereby achieving a130dB dynamic range. The 8-channel GainStation preamp also includes a frequency range of 1 Hz to 310 kHz (+/- 3 dB), an S/N ratio of -95.4 dBu and a maximum output level of +34 dBu. Each channel offers peak and FET limiters, a choice of three impedances for precise microphone input matching, 48V phantom power, phase reverse, highpass filters (50 Hz) and source switching.

“The GainStation 8 offers new aural perspectives and panorama through the exquisite and unsurpassed sonic qualities of high-end analog technique, particularly to DAW-based studios,” commented SPL engineer Ruben Tilgner. “Because of the superior initial signal quality, post-recording processing time is significantly lower in comparison to standard preamps.”
