The HV-3C Stereo Microphone Preamplifier is an entirely double-balanced, extremely wide dynamic range stereo microphone preamplifier intended for demanding audio recording. In it Millenia combines precisely matched, discrete bipolar transistors with a laser trimmed DC coupled FET-based output driver stage. Unlike standard mic preamplifiers, the HV-3C 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-3C 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 are assured

Comments about Millennia HV-3C Stereo Microphone Preamplifier:
Very clean pre, no coloration. Use it for classical, jazz recitals at a major university. This is a no thrills unit. If you have any phase problems, you have to do it post. If your looking at this, you know why it's used by everyone. Not like a Great River with a deeper low end and more functionality, but the price reflects the stripped down use. Great unit if you want accurate reproduction. The gain is good, but for recording classical guitar it could use a little more. That being said, most pre's don't have enough for classical guitar.
