Product Description

The HV-3C is a two channel, stereo matched microphone preamplifier uncompromised in sonic character, technical specification, and mechanical workmanship. Combining a precisely matched octet of discrete bipolar transistors with a laser trimmed DC coupled FET-based output driver stage, the HV-3C is an entirely "double balanced," extremely wide dynamic range stereo microphone preamplifier intended for demanding acoustic work. Unlike "textbook" mic preamplifiers, the HV-3C signal path never unbalances or rebalances the original signal — maintaining a high degree of signal integrity. Thousands and thousands of HV-3C channels are already in use by a who's-who in critical acoustic recording. 

Unlike preamps using vacuum tubes, IC function modules*, and audio transformers — all of which can lend their own audio coloration — the Millennia HV-3C is precisely optimized towards capturing the subtlest detail of music and ambience. With +23 dBu input headroom, the HV-3C requires no input pads or switch points as found on common textbook preamp designs — thus avoiding yet another source of sonic degradation. Moreover, with its +32 dBu output headroom, ultra-high dynamic stability and linearity is assured. 


Authentic Transparency for Unrestricted Creativity

  • Unsurpassed ambience retrieval
  • Transformerless design with matched hi-speed discrete transistor octet has 23 dB input headroom: no attenuator “pads” needed
  • Uncolored timbral accuracy at all dynamic levels
  • Entirely balanced audio path with precision components maintains signal integrity: THD under 5 ppm (.0005%)
  • Effortless, vividly realistic, musical performance
  • Laser-trimmed FET-based output stage has 32 dB headroom: drives 1000 foot (300 m) cable runs with ease
  • Standard 36-step gain controls (1.5 dB per step) are stereo matched to .08 dB
  • Ultra-clean toroid power supply
  • Gold audio connectors and switches
  • Mogami Neglex OFC audio wiring
  • Silver Teflon power wiring
  • Welded 16 gauge steel rack chassis
