Black Lion Audio has released its B12A MKII 500 ($599), an API-influenced single channel microphone preamp identical to Black Lion's popular B12A MKII half-rack unit, but in the 500 Series format. The MKII version features an upgraded Cinemag input transformer, 70 dB of gain, and lower noise than the original B12A. It also features an Edcor output transformer, a Hi-Z input, phantom power, 18 dB pad, and phase. It is designed and built in Black Lion Audio's Chicago factory.
