Warm Audio WA273 Overview

The Warm Audio WA273 is a dual-channel, Class-A microphone preamp designed to provide up to 80 dB of gain for engineers, producers, musicians, and vocalists in mobile-recording rigs and home, project, and commercial studios. It features custom Carnhill transformers and is wired and assembled by hand to deliver the sound and functionality of classic British ’73-style preamps.

Its inputs include balanced XLR and 1/4″ TRS jacks and two front-panel 1/4″ TS instrument inputs. Input impedance, polarity, ground lift, and phantom power are switchable. Connect an outboard compressor or equalizer via the 1/4″ TS insert send and return jacks. Balanced XLR and 1/4″ outputs are fed by output level controls and allow compatibility with most audio interfaces and mixing consoles. The selectable high-pass filter can be set to 50 Hz, 80 Hz, 160 Hz, or 300 Hz for management of unruly bass frequencies.

The WA273 is rack-mountable and occupies 1 RU.

Our objective is simple: to make sure every customer has a wonderful experience purchasing from us. If you are unhappy for ANY REASON, you may return your product for a one-time exchange at no cost or a full store credit for up to 90 days after delivery! We even provide FREE return shipping!

Contact us by phone, Live chat or email within 90 days of when your order was delivered. We will happily provide you a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number along with a prepaid postage return label (Domestic First-Class U.S. Mail only). Your warranty coverage is based off of the date you contact us, and the lens type you ordered (see below for limitations). We cannot process or honor returns without an RMA number
For a full refund to your original payment method, you must contact us to request an RMA within 30 days of the original delivery date. Refunds can only be issued after we have received the original merchandise back, and will be issued in line with your warranty coverage and minus any discounts given on the original order.
After the initial 30 day period, on any order, your order is refundable in store credit only or Exchange.
We provide free shipping via UPS or USPS Ground to the contiguous 48 United States, on most items. Items valued at over $250 will require a signature for delivery.
Shipping fees to ALL OTHER LOCATIONS will be calculated individually and added to customer invoices. Local duties, taxes and charges are not included in the sale price or ship charges. Pro Sound Gear is not responsible for any taxes outside of FL and or the USA. In the event that the customer refuses a shipment, all shipping costs to and from the country or State in which the item was shipped to are not refunded. Please note, in some cases return shipping can cost as much as double the original ship cost.

We operate a 90-days return period. Items must be returned with all original packaging as well as all included items. Items that are not returned in original, resalable condition are subject to a 15% – 30% restocking fee. We charge a 15% restocking fee on returned items only if the item is clearly used and or the packaging is tarnished. A 30% re-stock is more likely if the unit comes back in really bad condition. The ship cost we paid UPS to ship your item will be deducted as well. In some cases restock fees and ship costs can be applied as a store credit.

We will exchange a defective unit for the same unit within the 30-day period. After that period, you will have to work directly with the manufacturer for warranty service.

Items that can not be returned include: software, units with contents or packaging that is damaged/missing, and items that are considered for personal use (such as earphones, headphones, microphones, instrument mouthpieces, harmonicas or other items that you wouldn’t want to purchase if someone else had previously used them). Also, Items which we do not normally stock (i.e. “Special Orders”, discontinued products, close-outs, used products, etc.) are non-returnable. We strongly suggest that you check your order after receiving it to be sure that it is in proper working order.
