    Audio Magic XF1140b Hi-Fi Stereo Audio Transformer Pair | Hammond Model

    This essential passive audio tool brings color, detail, improved sonic image, spacial separation, harmonics and glue to your audio mix. Low frequency phase shift enhances bass frequencies. These are the same American manufactured transformers, used in the Dangerous Music 2-BUS+ Summing Mixer and CONVERTER-2 Mastering Converter, and are responsible for the “next-generation” sound. Dubbed the Audio Magic XF1140b2, this piece of gear will add subtle character to your audio recordings and mixes. Sounds are glued together, in an ear pleasing way, as they transition through the magnetic medium. Audio transformers in many ways, function like reel-to-reel tape recorders.

    This stereo American issue high performance audio output transformer, is a no compromise, professional audio signal transformer primarily intended for line level input and output applications. This broadcast / pro-audio quality audio signal transformer offers low distortion, even at high signal levels. The same units used in Dangerous Music mastering equipment. We chose the Hammond 49% nickle core transformer for this design because of it’s sonic coloring. It exhibits wide bandwidth, common mode rejection ratio (CMRR), and distortion characteristics from 20Hz to 20kHz. This transformer is equipped with a dual copper bobbin shield to provide electrical shielding.

    The 2 position toggle switch allows you to bypass the transformer and pass direct audio signal. Seen here, the 1st pre-production 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. Akai MPC 3000, studio equipment and wood cassette not included.

    This hardware can be put to work during sampling, recording, mixing and mastering. By using it at all project stages, you can achieve results previously only achieved at large studios. These 600 ohm American made transformers, using 49% nickel cores, provide minimum load at low frequencies and allow for transparent low end performance. External dual copper bobbin shield has been added for RF noise rejection and electrical shielding. Can be used for for eliminating ground loops with interconnected equipment. This product allows project and home studios to achieve outstanding audio quality, at affordable cost. Hand built and tested in the United States, with quality and passion.
