The Artistic Pre features top of the line performance at a very affordable price. Key component to achieve this performance level is our new OPA2 discrete audio operational amplifier. It is not a copy of an older design, but a completely new Fredenstein circuitry manufactured in SMT technology. Matched and integrated dual input transistors guarantee vastly improved specifications compared to older designs. The OPA2, following the tradition of well known manufactures, is socketed and easily exchanged and uses industry standard pin-outs. Another very important sound shaping component is the American-made steel-core output transformer, with a smooth vintage sound without being dark or just “mid-rangy”. A 100 KOhms direct input is on the front-panel, it accepts balanced and unbalanced signals, and the rear mic. input automatically disconnectes when a plug is inserted in the DI. Features include a max gain of 65 dB, a 20 dB Pad, switchable polarity, selectable input impedance, and Phantom-Power support, our new eight LED Peak-Meter with a 50 dB range for precise reading. As all Fredenstein products, the Artistic Pre is designed by a German-American team and manufactured in Taiwan.
