High fidelity 8-channel mic preamp with optional Remote Control Unit and A/D Conversion card.
The Grace Design m802 is a high fidelity 8-channel mic preamp and a successor of the highly regarded Grace 801r.
The Grace Design m802 delivers the same sonic performance as its predecessor offering unmatched detail, clarity and transparency as well as remarkable headroom and bandwidth (15Hz-300kHz). The Grace Design m802 is the ideal solution for high-resolution recording systems.
The m802 includes a powerful software platform to precisely control the analogue circuit using Low Noise Low Distortion digital gain control cell, which provides gain, changes of 1.5dB per step. A ribbon mic mode is included to shift the entire gain range up 10dB while bypassing the phantom power and optimising input impedance.
The m802 can work as a standalone mic preamp but can be augmented by the optional Remote Control Unit which not only provides enhanced system control, but also allows you to control up to 64 channels (with 8 m802 units) from up to 1000’ away. Alternatively the m802 can be controlled directly within Avid Pro Tools systems or compatible control surfaces or MIDI device.
Additional options include an optional 24-bit/192kHz A to D card designed to offer pristine and musical A/D conversion with Grace Design’s unique s-Lock dual stage PLL which offers really effective jitter rejection and solid digital performance.
