Manley Enhanced Pultec has a vastly superior B+ power supply, with regulated and balanced heater supply. Manley’s line amp is known to be killer-sounding. The components Manely uses today just weren’t available in the 1960’s. So, if you want a project with crackling carbon pots, dirty open frame wafer switches, 5% and 10% tolerance noisy carbon resistors, exposed tubes sticking out the back of the 3U chassis, etc., go pay top dollar for an antique Pultec!
The Manley Pultec EQP-1A, now available in both single and 2-channel versions, uses 1 x 12AU7WA and 1 x 6414 in our ALL-TUBE single-ended line amplifier for the gain make-up and extra-beefy sound; the Pultec EQP-1A’s gain is factory set for unity but additional gain is available by a rear mounted feedback adjustment trimpot. Like our 40dB Mic Preamps, the Manley Pultec EQP-1As offer both transformer coupled balanced and direct capacitor coupled unbalanced outputs for easy interface and sonic variety.

S/N Ratio: 116 dB
Adjustable FEEDBACK / GAIN: Unity ±5 dB
Max. output: +30 dBv
Power consumption: 18 watts
Operating mains voltage: Units are purpose built for original destination country’s mains voltage: 100V, 120V, or 220-240VAC as indicated on the serial number badge. Power transformer must be replaced in order to change mains operating voltage. 120VAC units may NOT be rewired to put the primaries of the power transformer in series for 220-240V operation or a large radiated field of hum will develop. If changing locations/voltages, the power transformer must be replaced with the dedicated one for the voltage at which it will operate.
Mains Voltage Frequency: 50~ 60Hz
