X5 Preamp / Signal Processor
The X5 is our most affordable preamp, but do not let the price fool you. The X5 is the exact same circuit as the individual channel strips in our Master's Series Preamps. The X5 has the exact same eq, buffer, and gain that we use in the X10. It also uses the exact same switches, jacks, and components. And since the X5 is not limited by phantom power, it has an upgraded IC inside with a faster slew rate for super fast and tight low end. The X5 is just about as close as you can get to the perfect theoretical model of a straight wire with gain.
