Focusrite ISA 828 MKII
The Focusrite ISA 828 MKII gives you a high-grade mic preamp incorporating 8 classic preamps with Lundahl LL1538 transformers on every input. Each channel also has the option of mic and line inputs. While inputs 1-4 also feature instrument inputs on the front panel. Each mic pre has variable input impedance which provides a range of options for different microphones. Including an ISA 110 setting that replicates the impedance of the original Focusrite mic pre.
Up to 60dB gain is also available with a further +20dB of continuously variable trim, providing a huge 80dB gain range. The high-pass filter has a fixed 75Hz frequency as well as an 18dB/octave roll-off for minimising rumble, stand-borne noise, and other low-frequency sounds. What’s more, the ISA 828 MKII also features six-segment LED meters and switchable insert points. Allowing the use of inlince processors such as compressors and EQ’s.
Dedicated connectors for mic and line-level inputs allow you to connect all sources simultaneously. So the ISA 828 MKII is perfect for permanent installation in a rack. While a switching power supply allows for efficient, cool operation without sacrificing sound quality or performance. While increasing reliability over its predecessor.
