Black Lion's Auteur MKII is a dual-channel preamp sporting high-speed input stages for optimum detail. Building on the reputation of its MkI predecessor, the Auteur MkII's reworked gain stage boosts gain and frequency response whilst lowering noise and distortion. Transformer-coupled output stages also impart a vintage tone which pairs nicely with the modern clean nature of the Auteur's input.
