Looks nice….Guess you have to contact for price.
Would be afraid to hear it!

AMRadiolegend mentions: “I am good.”
Yes, you are.

Not enough inputs for broadcasting.
But for a guy like me who (on the side) runs a mono analog recording studio where audio is recorded to either mono Ampex recorders (for the “modern crowd”) or (preferably) to mono 78 lacquer records on disc recorders from the 30’s and 40’s, this is right up my alley. I emailed for price and availability. I doubt I’d be able to justify it, but I’m mighty curious.

Well, I did receive a prompt reply to my inquiry. At today’s exchange rate one of these will set you back 3478.06 plus shipping.
In case you were getting ready to order.

In the interests of technical accuracy, the Kerwax studio/company is pushing this as a two-channel preamp, based on the 24-channel tube mixer installed at their studio. With only two channels, it is definitely not being marketed as a mixer. You might tack it in the signal chain between the mixer output and the airchain processor if you want to “warm up” the overall sound a bit.
At almost $3.5K, its more expensive than everything else running my operation combined. Wowee!

Not a dream mixer anymore!

What Good Is It
If it’s a 2-channel mixer it should have microphone inputs but the specifications say nothing about microphones.
Apparently it only accepts line level signals and can either pass them along separately or mixed to L+R monaural.
However, it does allow “adding distortion” which is something to have even if there’s no use for it.

Yeah, still not interested. I’ve spent the last 18 years trying to remove distortion from my signal path.

Part 15 AM signals degrade much differently than FM. An FM signal tends to be there with little noise, and then goes away rather quickly. Noise and static is introduced into an AM signal rather quickly, and then grows linearly until the noise drowns out the programming.
I can understand the quest for the holy grail of audio processing for licensed stations, where you’re dealing with many miles of range. I can’t understand it for Part 15 AM, where noise after a few blocks (at least in most urban and semi-urban environments) quickly overpowers any audio improvements that may come from expensive equipment. I guess you have the satisfaction of knowing that you have a killer signal in those few blocks.
