The Millennia HV-3D is a 4-channel, fully matched microphone preamplifier of uncompromising sonic character, technical specification, and mechanical workmanship. It offers 4 double-balanced, extremely wide dynamic range stereo microphone preamplifiers intended for demanding acoustic recording. It combines precisely matched, discrete bipolar transistors with a laser trimmed DC coupled FET-based output driver stage. Unlike standard mic preamplifiers, the HV-3D-4 never unbalances or rebalances the original signal, thus maintaining the highest degree of signal integrity.
Unlike preamps using vacuum tubes, IC function modules, and audio transformers (all of which can lend their own audio coloration) the Millennia HV-3D is precisely optimized to capture the subtlest detail of the music and ambience. With +23 dBu native input headroom, it requires no input pads, attenuators, 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.

Comments about Millennia HV-3D-4 Four Channel Microphone Preamplifier:
There are so many wonderful pre-amps, but in terms of bang for your buck, you cannot beat this 4-channel solution from Millennia. I was super doubtful before I used one, and actually steered clear of it for many years, mostly because I knew it was the industry standard for classical recording... but classical recording recordings generally sound... bad. But this thing is great. The classical engineers who mess stuff up must mess it up in other parts of the signal chain and mic placement -- Millennia pre's are completely solid, reliable, and true.
