The A-Designs Pacifica is a 1U solid-state, 2 channel pre-amp built to the highest standards for professional applications.

With the A-Designs Pacifica, the company took their inspiration from the long-cherished solid-state desks from the '70s, such as the Neve, Quad 8 and API of the best studios - each capable of imparting their particular sound to the final recordings.

The distinctive styling of the Pacifica came from A-Designs love of the American Quad 8 desk in particular, though they didn't let that obsession stop just there - they even had the transformers built by Tom Reichenbach, son of the builder of the original Quad 8 transformers.

The simple uncluttered layout of the Pacifica preamp offers you a jack input, Phantom Power, Pad and Phase Reversal buttons, plus a rotary gain knob per channel. The back panel has an XLR In and XLR Out per channel. And that's all she wrote.

But like all the best audio equipment, it's not about the buttons on the A-Designs Pacifica - it's all about the sound.
