For price please email sales@kazbarsystemsinc.com or call 01234780177


The API 512V Discrete Mic/Line Pre-Amp with Level Control is actually an API 512c with one important exception – it features a variable output designed to meet the needs of audio professionals using input level-sensitive devices in their workflow.

The API 512V Discrete Mic/Line Pre-Amp with Level Control uses the same circuitry as originally designed by API’s founder Saul Walker, and utilizes the exact same high quality components, proprietary transformer and 2520 op-amp as the 512c. In a direct response to market demand, the 512v eliminates the need for external signal attenuation through third party devices, and produces the same warm, analog signal that audio professionals expect from API.

Note: The 512v does not replace the 512c which continues to be available!
