After almost 7 years of making one of the finest high-end outboard gear lines in the industry, Heritage Audio is proud to introduce the Elite series. Leveraging the expertise and reputation obtained with its existing hand wired, extremely time-consuming hand soldered series, Heritage is able to offer a zero compromise, high quality yet very affordable new series of products.
A combination of mass production, lean manufacturing and modern construction techniques minimizes hand labor and, therefore, its high associated costs when manufacturing takes place in Western Europe. By passing the savings straight into the end users ́ pockets, Heritage Audio releases the most affordable outboard preamps and equalizers in its class up to date.
Key components to obtain a true vintage sound are indeed maintained, like the industry standard Carnhill transformers, hand wound in St Ives, England.
Manufactured in the same Spanish facilities as the rest of the HA line of products, the Elite Series will be available in January 2018. First models to be released in the series are the 1 rack unit format HA-73 single mic preamp.
