Gain Trim

High quality Bourns conductive plastic potentiometer can be wired as a full fader or gain trim control, allowing fine adjustment of gain between steps.

Carnhill Transformers

The N72 uses Carnhill input and output transformers. These UK manufactured parts are direct descendants of the original Marinair and St. Ives transformers and are the most convincing replacements available.

Flexible Power Supply

On-board voltage regulator can accommodate power supplies from +27DC to +35VDC. Local regulation also keeps inter-channel crosstalk extremely low when multiple preamps share the same power supply.
