A unique preamp for API 500 format designed by the man who owned API and Tonelux; Paul Wolff

Designed by Paul Wolff, known to the industry as the man who rescued API from Datatronix and founder of Tonelux, the 500-series Studio Projects SPM5 is a unique, high-quality mic/DI preamp. Like all things that come “from the mind of Paul Wolff,” the SPM5 has something special; a feature called “Radiance,” which provides clarity and presence to your sound source without boosting overall output levels. The SPM5 provides clean, low-noise gain up to 60dB, and if you’re testing mics on the fly, the SPM5 also has a convenient front-panel combo jack that lets you plug in a mic or instrument directly. With Studio Projects’ very affordable 500-series SPM5 you can fill your power rack with preamps from the man who designed some of API’s greatest modern hits and the entire stellar line of Tonelux—in fact, there’s no reason not have at least two SPM5 preamps.

* Radiance control adds 2nd-order harmonics for clarity and presence without volume boost
