Two channel class A, all discrete, transformer balanced microphone preamplifier.
Although Vintech's 1272 is not sonically identical to the original Neve 1272, unlike the Vintech channel strips (x73, x73i, x81) which are identical to the original 1073, there is no question that the Vintech 1272 nevertheless represents a spectacular value in a raw two channel mic preamp. It really is underpriced compared to the other preamps that are out on the market.
A good amount of that classic Neve transformer-based color, along with detailed sonic resolution make this a nice choice for studios with big budgets and a rack of pre's, or a small studio just looking to add just one nice stereo mic pre for few bucks. Unlike the other Vintech pieces that require an external power supply, this one includes the power supply internally, and this guy is ready to rock right out of the box!
