The AD2022 is Avalon’s fourth generation of fully discrete, symmetrical Pure
Class A microphone preamplifiers. The dual mono AD2022 includes the original
sonic capabilities and transparency of the M2, M22 and M5 preamplifiers plus
several additional features, including selectable microphone source loading for
optimized cable/mic matching, improved high-voltage Class A regulated power
supplies, two high Z instrument inputs, variable-passive high pass filter, teflon/
silver wiring and doubled plated circuit boards for superior low level signal transfer.
 
AD2022 FEATURES

High headroom +36dB input before overload
Input -20dB pad for high level signals
Sealed silver relays for all signal routing
External AC 150w toroidal power chassis
Fully discrete Class A regulated audio power supplies
Deep, musical sound-stage, transparent amplification

MICROPHONE INPUT
The AD2022 incorporates the most advanced high-performance microphone
transformer available. Split low-ratio primary windings are carefully combined
within a custom mu-metal core for extended smooth frequency response and
very low distortion.  Sealer silver relays are used for minimal signal invasion. 
The input signal selector, high pass filter, polarity-phase reverse, +48v power
and the 20dB input attenuator all utilize local sealed relay operation. A variable
passive high pass filter provides a minimum phase shift design while eliminating
low frequency rumble, wind noise and mechanical vibration at sub sonic frequencies.

SYMMETRICAL PURE CLASS A DESIGN
Two 100% discrete, high-voltage, symmetrical Pure Class A signal amplifiers
are utilized per channel. The first operates in a cascaded-cascode FET
configuration while the second stage amplifier is fully bipolar. The twin amplifiers
share the total available gain requirement. This shared architecture increases
the high level headroom capability, improves transient response and doubles the
internal bandwidth of the ultra-high performance pure Class A signal amplifiers.
OUTPUT and METERING
High-current DC coupled, Class A discrete amplifiers are utilized for the output
drive interface with +36dB capability into all known loads.  Two large, high-quality
analog VU meters indicate accurate signal readings while bi-color LED’s offers
peak indication at 0dB and +20dB.
