    Microphone Input
    The AD2022 incorporates the most advanced high-performance microphone transformer available. Split low-ratio primary windings are carefully combined within a custom mu-metal core for extended smooth frequency response and very low distortion. Sealer silver relays are used for minimal signal invasion. The input signal selector, high pass filter, polarity-phase reverse, +48v power and the 20dB input attenuator all utilise local sealed relay operation. A variable passive high pass filter provides a minimum phase shift design while eliminating low frequency rumble, wind noise and mechanical vibration at sub sonic frequencies.

    Symmetrical Pure Class A Design
    Two 100% discrete, high-voltage, symmetrical Pure Class A signal amplifiers are utilised per channel. The first operates in a cascaded-cascode FET configuration while the second stage amplifier is fully bipolar. The twin amplifiers share the total available gain requirement. This shared architecture increases the high level headroom capability, improves transient response and doubles the internal bandwidth of the ultra-high performance pure Class A signal amplifiers.

    Output And Metering
    High-current DC coupled, Class A discrete amplifiers are utilised for the output drive interface with +36dB capability into all known loads. Two large, high-quality analogue VU meters indicate accurate signal readings while bi-colour LED's offers peak indication at 0dB and +20dB.
