About This Listing

PRICE REDUCED 5/4/2019!
IF YOU PAY OUR ASKING PRICE WE'LL INCLUDE A 15 FOOT DSUB-XLRM CABLE FOR THE 8 DIRECT OUTS--A $200 VALUE !!!

Well, here's a RARE find- a German-made Audio Developments AD031 'Micro' field and studio mixer console. This little beauty offers 8 channels of mic/line inputs, A/B/C mix channels plus AUX buss, and two channels (A/B) of compressor/limiter dynamics. Also, this board features DISCRETE PRES WITH TRANSFORMERS, which sound really natural and linear.

These hardly EVER come up, and certainly even if they do, not in this fully restored and fully refurbished condition. Our technicians started with an excellent condition example and implemented key modifications designed to improve this unit's utility. We followed all of audiophile Jim William's recommendations and went even FURTHER. Modifications included:

1) Fully refurbished the power supply, including new caps and voltage regulators, addition of a ground lift switch, and increasing voltage rails to +/- 24V (for increased headroom and low noise floor!) plus 48V phantom power (selectable for EACH channel via switches at the rear) !!!

2) Re-capped the entire unit, including EACH channel, the master section, and the dynamics module !!!

3) Changed EACH and EVERY OP-AMP to ultra-high fidelity top-of-the-line Burr-Brown OP-AMPS. Cost for chips alone was ~$100 per channel, ~$200 for the master section and ~$100 for the dynamics module- total of $1100 in chips alone !!!

4) Added balanced, transformer individual outs for EACH of the 8 channels, using 8 top-of-the-line Lundahl transformers (one on each channel), and added DB25 connector at the side !!!

The combined total of the complete refurbishment and modifications resulted in ~20dB MORE HEADROOM and reduced the noise floor by ~30dB !!!

Great mixer here for studio, live, or field work !!!

You've got to hear this mixer to believe it. Totally off the charts !!!

That's why they call this mixer the "mini-SSL" !!!

This listing includes:

1) The AD031 'micro' mixer itself

2) The power supply

3) Neutrix cable from the AD031 to the power supply, and an IEC cable to plug the power supply into the wall

4) ORIGINAL aircraft aluminum case !

Fully tested and working 100% !!!

FREE SHIPPING IN CONUS IF YOU PAY OUR ASKING PRICE !!!

BUY NOW BECAUSE THIS ONE WON'T LAST AT THIS LOW, LOW PRICE !!!
