Offers increased performance to an already great studio tool.
The Model 7602 MKII is the sequel to Chameleon Labs smash hit 7602 Microphone Preamplifier/Equalizer. The 7602 MKII new features include: selectable mic impedance, LED input metering, upgraded knob styles, and two different power options-all of this for the same price as the original unit. The 7602 MKII ships with an inline power transformer (all regulation is done inside the unit). The rackmountable CPS-1 can also still be used, but is no longer required.
The Model 7602 MKII Microphone Preamplifier/Equalizer is based on a classic and revered design utilizing pure Class 'A' circuitry. This unit is made with 100% discrete components, hand wound transformers and was fabricated to precisely match vintage counterparts manufactured in the early to mid 70's. The Model 7602 MKII represents a dramatic breakthrough in delivering vintage audio performance at an affordable price.
The 7602 MKII Microphone Preamp and EQ adds a factory installed Carnhill mic and output transformers to the 7602 unit. This upgrade adds increased performance and functionality to the 7602 MKII (sold separately).
Equalizer Section (Selectable 3-band design with a flexible filter section):
Filter - This is a high pass filter with 3db loss at 300Hz, 160Hz, 80Hz, and 50Hz with an 18dB cut per octave slope.
Low Equalization - This section has a shelving slope with four frequency selections: 220Hz, 110Hz, 60Hz, and 35Hz. This equalizer affects the selected frequency and all others below it. The gain control provides 20dB of boost or cut.
Mid Equalization - This section has a peaking characteristic with six frequency selections: 360Hz, 700Hz, 1.6kHz, 3.2kHz, 4.8kHz, and 7.2kHz. The gain control provides 20dB of boost or cut.
High Equalization - This section has a shelving characteristic with five frequency selections: 16kHz, 12kHz, 7kHz, 4.9kHz and 3.4kHz. This section adjusts the selected frequency and all others above it. The gain control provides 20dB of boost or cut.
By employing classic circuit design, polystyrene capacitors, a gold contact ELMA gain selector and custom wound transformers, Chameleon Labs ensures that the Model 7602 MKII will exhibit classic audio sound.
The Model 7602 MKII has a transformer-balanced input with a range between 20dB and 80dB of gain. The separate line input is transformer balanced and accepts input levels from -20 to +10dB.
What Makes Chameleon Labs Different?
Chameleon Labs is a new type of company, focused on delivering performance and value at a price previously thought impossible. How do they do it? By reinventing how global manufacturing is approached. Chameleon Labs engineers are not inexperienced kids in a garage, buying products that are designed and built in China. Chameleon Labs is comprised of audio professionals with many decades of experience in high-end pro audio gear. From its inception seven years ago, they pioneered the idea of "blended technology", using top-notch parts from the US, UK, and Europe combined with low-cost metalwork and assembly from China. This combination enables a superior performance level at a low price point.
Every Chameleon Labs product is first created and engineered here in the U.S. The goal is to achieve a specific sound through tedious testing in major U.S. recording studios and listening to numerous tracks and/or mixes with a very specific sonic target in mind. A new design must impress the best and brightest of our evaluation group before it ever reaches the factory floor.
