The craftsmanship of the 786 is as stunning as the engineering is innovative. Astriking blue front panel machined from 1/4" aircraft aluminum, hand-crafted solid aluminum knobs, LEDs mounted individually in machined stainless steel housings, custom VU meters with peak indicators, and heavy gauge chassis solidify the 786 as the benchmark preamplifier for decades to come.
The 786 combines the best preamplifier features and an absolutely pristine audio path. In addition to having +48V phantom power as well as a phase reverse switch, the 786 also features a patent-pending EQ circuit called "spectrum" with frequency cut and boost up to 40kHz. An 11-position coarse gain switch sets the gain between +10 and +60dB, while the fine gain control varies between -3 and +3dB. Levels may be monitored on peak program VU meters with adjustable reference levels. The signal path consists of a transformer-coupled, discrete-design premium input stage utilizing the proprietary dbx M8
