SPL of Germany Announces 'Crescendo duo' 2-Channel Microphone Preamplifier Featuring 120V Technology

New 2-channel mic preamp version based on SPL's flagship Crescendo, set to ship April 14, 2020

Montreal, Canada - March 31, 2020 - SPL of Germany has announced the new 'Crescendo duo' mic pre that extends SPL's 120V technology microphone preamplifier portfolio with a two-channel version of the SPL Crescendo. The new product is set to ship worldwide April 14, 2020, and is distributed by Focal-Naim America in the US and Canada, it retails for $2,499 USD.

Crescendo duo excels with the same outstanding sonic and technical features as the flagship of the product line - Crescendo, an 8-channel mic pre, released in September 2018. It is nearly impossible to overdrive this preamplifier. It excels with absolute signal fidelity and clarity and lets microphones appear in a whole new light - they have never been amplified like this before.

Besides the switchable +48V phantom power for condenser microphones, Crescendo duo offers a high-pass filter to eliminate low-frequency noise, the ability to reverse the polarity of the signal and a PAD to lower the input level. The two large VU meters visualize the output level of the amplified signal. The ability to reduce level, shown on the VU meter, by 10dB makes it easy to display the dynamics of high levels. A highlight of the Crescendo duo is the individual control of Mic Gain and Output Gain. This way, the microphone signal is amplified in the best way possible without wasting a single dB.

The output signal can be accessed at the rear via two parallel XLR outputs per channel. For example, two different recording systems can be used (for example for creating a back-up) or two different signal paths can be fed.

The Crescendo duo is the perfect start for an engineer entering into the world of the SPL 120V technology microphone preamplifiers. The Crescendo duo is perfectly suited for the most demanding stereo recordings but is also ideal for mono signals such as vocals. It is the ultimate front end for all professional recording studios.

"After having brought my vision of a 120V technology microphone preamplifier to life with the Crescendo, I am now pleased that this philosophy is being continued with the two-channel version Crescendo duo. It is the ideal front-end for studios and production spaces that only require a few, but high-quality, microphone preamps to get the most out of their microphones and recordings using SPL 120V high dynamic linear technology," said Wolfgang Neumann, Chief Developer at SPL.

The new SPL Crescendo duo is set to be available in stores starting April 14, 2020, with a US retail price of $2499. USD
