Projects > [silent:arts] OV560 Preamp

The OV560 is [silent:arts]’s recreation of the vintage Neumann OV60 preamplifier for the modern 500-series/51x Alliance modular formats. Both the OV560 and the original OV60 are opamp-based preamps with transformer inputs and outputs. With the OV560, [silent:arts] has added sockets for standard, 2520-size discrete opamps.
