The Model 107 comprises two independent mic channels, each with independently-switchable 48V phantom power, Phase invert, 80Hz Low Cut (12dB/octave), 20dB pad and Gain control. All the switches have status LEDs and there are two further LEDs - green for signal OK and red for Overload. The 107 is a hybrid design utilizing a solid-state front end followed by a tube gain stage, the idea being to offer the best of both worlds; the solid-state circuitry provides low noise with a good transient response, while the tube provides the 'flavoring'.
