You Asked for It!
We created the ADL 700 because you insisted! The PreSonus ADL 600 two-channel tube mic preamp was such a hit with customersâ€”including such top artists, engineers, and producers as Chuck Ainlay, Jimmy Douglass, Mark Mancina, Demetric Collins, and Victor Wootenâ€”that we were inundated with requests for a single-channel version in a channel strip, with a compressor and EQ that would be up to the preampâ€™s high standards.
You were rightâ€”it was a great ideaâ€”so we gave the design job to Robert Creel, the engineering mastermind behind many of PreSonusâ€™ most beloved analog circuits, including the XMAXâ„¢ preamp. It took years of hard work but he delivered big-time. The ADL 700 channel strip is everything weâ€”and youâ€”hoped it would be!
Putting the AD in ADL 700
We started with a single-channel version of the ADL 600 preamplifier, which was co-designed by PreSonus and famed tube-circuit designer Anthony DeMaria. The preamp employs a distinctive Class A, discrete design that incorporates two 6922 and one 12AT7 vacuum tubes per channel, operating with Â±300V power rails for maximum headroom and superb tone.
The dual-transformer design ensures low-noise operation, with maximum common-mode rejection. This resulted in an ultra-quiet tube preamp with a big, warm, smooth, clear, distinctive sound.
