The Warm Audio WA12 MkII is a single-channel mic preamp using an all discrete signal path with high-voltage and dual transformer circuit for high headroom, low noise operation and stunning sonic performance inspired by the venerable API 312.
The Warm Audio WA12 MkII is designed around the X731 discrete op-amp, a reproduction of the Melcor 1731 which was the predecessor to the modern 2520-style op-amps. The X731 offers a vibrant tone with life-like qualities and can be pushed into subtle and musical saturation at high levels. Users looking to improve their tone can replace the X731 by any 2520-style op-amps.
The WA12 MkII also uses Cinemag transformers on the input and output stages to ensure stunning performance with huge headroom.
