Cherry Picker™ Specifications

The Cherry Picker is a 'straight wire' switcher that lets you to compare up to four preamps using a single microphone. This balanced interface employs high performance gold contact sealed relays and is void of any buffering whatsoever. This results in distortion levels that are below measurement, zero phase shift at all audio frequencies and a linear performance that is equivalent to a solid piece of wire. The external power supply is used to control the relays, power the LEDs and generate 48V phantom power.
