ART has been known for their value-added tube based preamps for over 25 years. With the Trans X, ART offers more choices with the rugged and reliable performance of a transformer based design. The ART Trans X has dedicated Jensen Transformers on the input which block RF and other noise while custom output transformers block DC, providing for balanced or unbalanced output. It has Variable XLR input impedance for creative control and attractive LED Meter arrays with peak hold. The detented rotary pots enable consistent, repeatable results every time.
The mic input transformers, model JT-11K8-APC, block RF and other noise using internal Faraday shielding. These virtually eliminate hum and buzz. They are enclosed in MuMETAL magnetic shielding cans to reduce hum caused by nearby magnetic fields. As with all Jensen Transformers, the JT-11K8-APC offer extended low-frequency and Bessel-tailored high-frequency responses, which results in the ultra-low time-domain distortion (DLP) that only Jensen offers.
The Trans X is housed in a standard 1u space rack-mountable steel chassis, with high quality components, and is designed for years of reliable operation in the studio, production facility, or on the road.
