Sound Skulptor ships the MP573, a single ended class A preamp, based on the classic Neve 1290/1073, ported to the API Lunchbox format.

The sound of the MP573, like its model is full, silky, detailed and musical, slightly larger than life, very complimentary to a digital recording environment.

This product is a new addition to the Sound Skulptor range of DIY kits. The DIY approach on these products makes them affordable to most - without compromising on quality. The skills needed to build the kit are basic, thanks to careful design and to the very detailed instructions. Of course, the products are also available fully assembled for the non-technicians.

Single ended class A design
Carnhill/St. Ives transformers on input and output
0 to 70 dB of gain
FET DI input, relay switched, the signal passes through the input transformer
Golden contacts on relays and switches
Jumper selectable input impedance: 300-1200 ohms
High quality Grayhill gain switch
Tantalum capacitors in the audio path
Easy build, dense but straightforward
