    • For Gear Heads:


      The True Systems Precision 8 is designed to provide the detailed, transparent sonic performance necessary for the highest quality direct tracking and live sound applications. It includes a unique combination of features which make it useful as a complete input system for MDM's, HDR's, and DAW's. Two sonically accurate discrete FET instrument inputs (DI's) are available for recording or live sound applications in which realistic, unaffected sound quality is desired. The 5-segment peak-hold level metering with selectable peak reference allows rapid optimization of program levels between the PRECISION 8 and devices to which it is interfaced.

      PRECISION 8 is ideal for location recording due to its 8-channel single rack unit format, smooth continuous gain controls, useful level metering, and easy interconnect. The integral MS decoder provides creative spatial image control that is particularly useful in attaining an exciting stereo image with minimum effort and microphone repositioning.

      • Eight highly transparent solid state microphone preamps in a 1 unit rack configuration
      • Challenges the recognized leaders in sonic accuracy and performance
      • Built-in M-S (Mid-Side) decoding for creative spatial image control
      • Active, high-impedance instrument inputs ("DI's") selectable on two channels
      • 5-segment level indicators with peak-hold feature and selectable peak reference
      • Smooth continuous gain controls
      • Easy interface to MDM's, HDR's, DAW's, or consoles
      • Dual DB25/TRS outputs for flexible interconnection
      • Elegant, sturdy physical design
      • Exceptional cost per channel value


      PRECISION 8 uses a high-voltage composite architecture with discrete devices plus integrated circuits. It offers very low noise and distortion as well as high headroom. The totally balanced dual-servo design eliminates nearly all capacitors in the audio path and is DC-coupled at the output. All this results in a very detailed and transparent sound quality which challenges even the most esoteric microphone preamp

      Layman's Terms:

      The Price Per Channel on the True Systems Precision 8 is pretty unbelievable! At roughly $338 per channel you can not beat the quality of this 8 Channel mic preamp.  It is absolutely ideal for location recording due to its single rack space and light weight design.  It has either (8) 1/4" TRS outputs or (1) DB-25 Output Connector.  It also gives you 2) D.I. and an M.S. (Mid Side) Decoding that is perfect for stereo recording.
