More Remote Preamps from Millenia

Newest microphone preamplifier is fully remote‐controllable and forward compatible with renowned HV‐3R remote micamp.


11 September 2020

Based on years of pro client suggestions, the HV‐316 is designed for harsh environments and mission‐critical applications: live touring racks, scoring stages, remote recording trucks, large studio complexes, sampler houses, hot‐rack installs, concert halls, outdoor facilities, schools and networked music venues, and environmental recording (12V battery operation).

  • Technical Hall of Fame HV‐3 micamps (qty 16), legendary timbre realism and dynamic uniformity
  • Designed for high‐temperature continuous operation (65C / 150F)
  • Powered by both 12VDC and worldwide 80‐264VAC. Redundant, fail‐safe operation
  • High energy “pi filter” shielding provided on audio and digital feeds, destroys Bluetooth, Wi‐Fi, and cellular interference
  • Ultra‐reliable power supply rated for 650,000 hours MTBF operation

A featherweight (10 lbs / 4.5 kg), road‐ready 1U aircraft‐grade aluminum chassis houses 16 channels of Millennia HV‐3 microphone preamplifiers with simultaneous analog and Dante 32‐bit / 192kHz Ethernet outputs. Other digital‐ audio output options are planned, including USB and MADI.

Millennia remote micamps (HV‐3R and new HV‐316) can seamlessly operate together on a single Ethernet network – up to 256 redundant audio channels. Remotely control Gain, Polarity, Pad, Mute, channel Linking, high‐pass filter, selectable true‐DC Ribbon or Phantom paths on every channel. Unlimited scene recall scripting and scribble‐strips – ideal for live shows.

Employs 16‐ch of meticulously integrated, new generation AKM 192kHz A‐D converters, femto‐clock, multi‐paralleled for extreme dynamic range performance and trusted Millennia sonics. +34dBu input headroom / 130dB dynamic range.

All internal processing is achieved via a generic ”Beagle Green” plug‐and‐play ARM processor – assuring non‐obsolescence and easy field replacement.

Redundant (dual) powering: If one power source fails, the other source continues operating without audio dropout or glitch.

Hardware MIDI input for third‐party compatibilities.

Delivered with our top‐line mirror‐polish black finish on extruded and machined aluminium billet and gold anodised aluminium chassis.

Available short‐loaded as 8‐ch unit. Introductory “pandemic” street price $5,300 (16 ch), $3,500 (8 ch), analog output option board $745 (8 ch). Shipping October 2020.
