The Millennia HV-316 is an ethernet remote controlled preamp offering 8 or 16 channels of dynamically uniform HV-3 musical performance.

Vividly Realistic

Built from military spec aluminium, the HV-316 harnesses the power of pristine Millennia HV-3 preamp circuits, available in an eight or sixteen channel version and easily upgradable with Millennia’s 8-to-16 upgrade modification.

The HV-316 has been designed for use both in the studio and on the road, offering RF shielding to stop potential interference, a medical-grade redundant power supply, and a surprisingly high temperature threshold where uninterrupted performance can still be counted on.

Built For The Dante Generation

HV-316 offers up to 32-bit/192 kHz resolution audio directly over Dante. Up to 384 audio channels can be utilised on a single network and each preamp circuit settings (including gain, polarity, high pass filter and stereo link) can be remote controlled by Millennia’s proprietary software.

AD and DA conversion is handled by specially selected AKM chips for Millennia-standard highly polished yet musical results.
