    Audio Magic Blue Nev-5554 British Audio Transformer | Step-Up Mastering Grade

    The v2.0 Audio Transformer designs offer enclosed transformers for better electrical shielding. The units are all hand wired with twisted pair and point-to-point connections. The desk design provides more options for ratio, bypass, attenuation, termination, ground lift and other functional buttons and switches. XLR connectors, special functions and/or switches can be added per request.

    This essential passive Audio Magic Blue Nev-5554 brings depth, color, detail, improved sonic image, spacial separation, harmonics, volume boost and glue to your audio mix. Low-frequency phase shift enhances bass frequencies. Dual switches on the front panel allow you to select 1:1 or 1:2 operation. Low through mid frequencies are enhanced in an amazing way when audio is passed through a step-up transformer. These are the same British manufactured transformers used to service Neve equipment, and are partly responsible for that classic Neve sound. Dubbed the Audio Magic Blue Nev-5554, this piece of gear will add buttery smooth character and enhanced low end to your audio recordings and mixes. Sounds are glued together, in an ear pleasing way via electromagnetic signal conversion. Peep the audio transformer article to learn more.

    This stereo high performance, UNGAPPED, audio output transformer, is a no compromise, professional audio signal transformer primarily intended for studio and mastering operation. This audio signal transformer offers low distortion, even at high signal levels. These Carnhill units provide a unique sound. We chose the Neve Red transformers for this design because of it’s legendary sonic coloring. It exhibits wide bandwidth, common mode rejection ratio (CMRR), and distortion characteristics from 20Hz to 22kHz.

    The Aluminum transformer enclosure provides comprehensive electrical shielding. The unit delivered subtle warming and gluing of the audio signal. As well as opening up the the sonic image and frequency spectrum. High quality die-cast magnesium enclosure. Large non-slip rubber feet. Quality 1/4″ TRS audio I/O connectors. Transformers fabricated per order. Studio equipment not included.

    Released Nov 21, 2023: “Boutique Audio Magic Transformers by Big Noise MPC v2.0″ Produced by Big Noise, Edited by Noiseman. In 2003 I read a few articles on audio transformers. After producing music in the early 90’s I knew how much I loved the analog sound. Bought my first pair of vintage UTC steel core transformers in 2018, commonly used in the classic Teletronix LA-2A units on the input and output.”
