500-Series Mic Pre w/ Silk

Based on the 5017 and preamp, the 511 provides world class, transformer-coupled preamp with Silk modes in a 500-Series model. Get the same sweet sound without the extra features and behold one of the most affordable high-end 500-Series preamps available.

Mic Pre and Instrument Amplifier
The 511′s mic pre includes 66dB gain, and is based on the Portico 5017 design. The mic pre also incorporates a polarity reverse switch and phantom power. The separate instrument amplifier includes 30dB of gain, a ground lift, variable phase and an instrument Thru connection.

Texture & Silk
One of the key developments in the 511 is the Red Silk / Texture control from the Portico II Channel. Building on the SilkŁ mode found in the Portico Series mic pre-amplifiers, Texture is designed to adjust the actual amount of harmonic music content from the source material, in effect, providing wide range of tonal options for the preamplifier. Like the original Portico Silk, the Silk Red / Texture works by reducing negative feedback on the output transformer and adjusting the frequency response to more closely resemble Mr. Rupert Neves vintage designs. With the 511, the Texture control allows these techniques to be pushed further than previous designs, adding about 10 times the desirable THD of the original silk control at the maximum setting.
