The TLA is followed by an actual input transformer permitting a full +25dBu input signal to be handled at unity gain without an input pad over the whole audio spectrum. This combines the advantages of both an electronically balanced and true transformer input. When the phantom voltage is switched off, this input serves as a very high quality line input with an impedance of 10,000 ohm.<BR/><BR/><strong>Low noise, low distortion operation</strong><BR/><BR/>Much care was given to designing the Portico 5012 Duo to produce as little noise and non-harmonic distortion as possible.
