News Image
HARMAN's dbx 676 Tube Mic Pre Channel Strip is now available for shipping.

The dbx 676 is a vacuum tube-based microphone preamplifier that offers flexible sound-tailoring options to deliver high audio quality in recording and live sound applications.

The dbx 676 employs a high-gain, Class A tube preamp section based around a 12AU7 vacuum tube that can be adjusted to be clean and pure-sounding or dirty and full of harmonic character. The 676 incorporates the Compressor/Limiter design from the dbx 162SL and a 3-band parametric EQ, enabling exacting control of dynamics and tonal balance.

"Whether you need a preamp that provides pristine, rich sound quality and tube warmth, want to add some edge and personality to vocals and instruments or are seeking to improve the sound of your recording or live rig, the dbx 676 is the ideal tool for taking your sound to the highest level," stated Jason Kunz, Market Manager, Portable PA and Recording & Broadcast, HARMAN Signal Processing.

The dbx 676 offers ¼-inch and XLR inputs and outputs, a front-panel instrument input and a side chain insert. An optional digital output card is available. The 676 allows for precise tailoring of input and output levels, which can be monitored by its large multi-function VU meter.

The compressor/limiter section provides flexible control of dynamics including threshold, attack, gain and release, auto attack and release, hard and soft knee compression, dbx-exclusive AutoVelocity manual and OverEasy modes and PeakStop limiting algorithm and many additional functions. The 676's 3-band parametric EQ allows adjustment of level and bandwidth at frequencies that have been carefully chosen for maximum musical effectiveness.

The dbx 676 Tube Mic Pre Channel Strip is available at a price of $999.95.
