In keeping with A-Designs Audio's mission of sound quality above all, the features of the Pacifica are just what an audio professional needs to record high-quality tracks and no more. Sonically compromising extra switches and components of dubious features are eliminated from the signal path. Plus, with 72dB gain and extremely low-noise operation (-128dB EIN) the ribbon mic-friendly Pacifica ensures clarity and fidelity—whether you're going for transparency or plenty of punch and character. Paying homage to the color scheme of the Quad Eight Pacifica console, the hand-crafted Pacifica sports a rich, cream-colored finish with solid-feeling, red metal gain knobs; a red +48V phantom-power push button with red LED indicator—both for easy identification if ribbon mics are involved; plus grey push buttons for phase reverse and –20dB pad—all giving the Pacifica a look reminiscent of California girls, beach boys, and classic Woodies.

Features:
  • Two-channel, solid state preamp with two front-panel Hi-Z inputs
  • Captures the sound quality of the legendary Quad Eight Pacifica console with even more presence and high-end
  • Very warm and full tone without being dark; wide bandwidth with a sweet top end.
  • Custom-wound Cinemag input and output transformers
  • Input transformer: A-Designs proprietary input transformer with unique winding
  • Output Transformer: A-Designs proprietary alloy using the same massive design as the original Quad Eight.
  • 72dB of quiet gain, great for use with ribbon mics.
  • Unique DI design sends signal through the input transformer for two transformers in the signal path.
  • Balanced XLR I/O
  • Phase reversal (each channel)
  • -20dB pad (each channel)
  • +48V phantom power (each channel)
  • Solid construction, handmade in the USA
