4-channel USB Audio Interface/Mic Preamp with HDIA Preamps

The UH-7000 is a pro-level microphone preamp and audio interface, designed with a strong focus on low noise and high audio quality. Not only can this unit be used as a 4-in/4-out audio interface in a DAW production environment, but as a standalone microphone preamp and AD/DA converter. The built-in HDIA (High Definition Instrumentation Architecture) microphone preamps are newly designed with low noise and high audio quality. These impressive mic pres perform at −128dBu EIN, a 117dB signal-to-noise ratio and distortion ratio of 0.0009% or less. 

The grand nature of the UH-7000's sound is partially due to the careful attention spent on selecting parts. In addition to the Burr-Brown PCM4220 ADC, PCM1795 DAC converters and thin film metal resistors, installed is a powerful TCXO clock generator with +/−1ppm precision. 

EAN Product of the Year

 

The unit's half-rack size makes it easy to install at a studio console or work desk. The thick aluminum panels on the front and sides of the full-metal body increase stability. Highly important but easily forgotten are the smooth-tension aluminum input level knobs for precise level adjustments. 

The UH-7000 microphone preamp and audio interface enables composers, musicians and recording engineers to produce music in their private quarters at a level only reached in professional studios.

[NOTES]

  • To stay up to date with the latest driver versions, no CD-ROM or other media is included with the package. Users should download and use the latest drivers from our website.
  • When operating at 88.2kHz or 96kHz, only one of the effects (dynamics or send) can be used.
  • When operating at 176.4kHz or 192kHz, no effects can be used.
  • During standalone operation, the built-in DSP mixer settings cannot be changed.
  • Even being use in the standalone mode for micpre, output signal go through internal digital circuit.
  • Turning LINK LINE OFF with the button will cause the signal level at the ANALOG (BALANCED) OUTPUT L/R connectors to revert to full line level loudness. When turning the LINK LINE OFF, check and adjust the levels on the currently playing audio and connected monitoring equipment first.


HDIA mic preamps capture detailed nuances

The High Definition Instrumentation Architecture (HDIA) mic preamp maximizes high specifications that produce the lowest noise. Parts were selected through repeated listening tests in order to confirm high-performance in both numerical ratings and actual audio quality. The instrumentation amplifier method requires a large number of parts and labor, therefore it is rarely used in ordinary audio equipment. Designed with a circuit that is used not only for professional audio equipment but also in measurement devices that handle highly detailed signals, the UH-7000 is capable of capturing the finest expressive nuances for all musical performances.

Excellent input audio circuit specifications

The analog audio input circuit was designed to achieve low noise and high audio quality throughout the entire signal. Key parts only made the cut after many intense listening tests. Everything from the film capacitors for improved noise performance to the thin film metal resistors and others. 
Equivalent Input Noise (EIN): −128 dBu 
Audio equipment generates a small amount of voltage even when all input/outputs are disconnected. This noise is calculated as equivalent input sound pressure, most commonly known as equivalent input noise (EIN). Signals at levels lower than this value are masked. -128 dBu represents the smallest signal level the UH-7000 can actually handle. 

Signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio: 117 dB (mic to AD converter) 
The signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio is a logarithmic value that expresses the amount of noise in comparison to the signal. As a value that indicates the performance of audio equipment, it is extremely important. As this value increases, the amount of noise decreases. 

Total harmonic distortion (THD): 0.0009% or less (mic to AD converter)
With no distortion being the ideal, this value expresses the distortion (harmonic content) from the circuit. As this value decreases, the amount of distortion also decreases. Most other USB audio interfaces cannot reach THD levels this low. 

Frequency Response: 20 Hz to 80 kHz, +0.005 dB/−0.16 dB (mic preamp at all sampling frequencies)
The frequency response used for audio equipment expresses the sound pressure frequency characteristics. Since this showcases how each frequency of the input audio (sound pressure amplitude) varies, it is often shown as a graph. When expressed numerically, the frequency range and amplitude variation values are used. The ideal value is a straight line graph from the lowest frequency to the highest frequency. The closer the response is to being flat, the more accurately the characteristics of the source sound are maintained. People tend to focus on the frequency range, but the amplitude variation is very important. For example, "20 Hz–20 kHz, +/−1 dB" is closer to being flat than "20 Hz–20 kHz, +/−6 dB".

Audio quality has been fine-tuned through listening evaluations and recording tests

The sound heard does not always match the numerical specifications. Recording tests were repeatedly conducted for this purpose.

DEMO Sounds


It is the sound source recorded by "UH-7000" in the above-mentioned recording examination.
Large aluminum input level knobs and 20-segment LED level meters for precise recording 
The UH-7000 is fronted with large aluminum input level knobs The smooth-tension knobs of the UH-7000 support extremely fine adjustments. The unit also includes independent 20-segment LED level meters. In combination with the large knobs, recording levels can be adjusted even more precisely.
Switch operation modes between standalone mic pre and audio interface mode
The UH-7000 starts up in mic pre only mode automatically when not connected to a computer. This unit is an ideal choice as a mic preamp for a master recorders such as the DA-3000.
High precision clock TCXO used to realize stable digital signal control
The clock generator can heavily influence digital signal quality; therefore the UH-7000 is built with a temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO). This oscillator has a higher precision than the crystal oscillators (XO) used in ordinary equipment. The timing clock uses a crystal oscillator that governs digital signals, but the frequency generated varies according to the temperature. In contrast, a TCXO includes a temperature compensation circuit that has exactly the opposite temperature characteristics of the crystal oscillator. These temperature characteristics guarantee stable clock generation. Compared to the norm, +/−100ppm precision (4.8 Hz at 48 kHz) produced from a standard crystal oscillator, the UH-7000 reaches +/−1ppm precision (0.048 Hz at 48 kHz).
Outstanding AD/DA converter performance with professional studio input/output solutions


The internal circuitry is furnished with Burr-Brown's impeccably pure PCM4220 AD converter. This converter uses a high performance chip that was developed specifically for professional audio and boasts a dynamic range of 123 dB (−60dB input, A-weighted) in isolation. Audio signals digitized by the PCM4220 can be sent via USB to the computer or output from the XLR AES/EBU digital output jacks.
For digital-to-analog conversion, the UH-7000 uses the equally impressive Burr-Brown PCM1795. The digital inputs and outputs support transmission in IEC60958-4 (AES/EBU) and IEC60958-3 (S/PDIF) formats. 
Even when used in standalone micrpre mode, the output signal runs through the internal digital circuit.
Link line function enables volume control of powered monitors
The link line function allows the line output volume to be adjusted using the headphones volume knob. This allows users to connect the unit directly to powered speakers and adjust the monitoring volume without need for a mixer or other equipment. 

[Note] 
  • When the headphones and line output volumes are linked, be careful with the volume when using both headphones and speakers.
  • Turning LINK LINE OFF with the button will cause the signal level at the ANALOG (BALANCED) OUTPUT L/R connectors to revert to full line level loudness.
    When turning the LINK LINE OFF, check and adjust the levels on the currently playing audio and connected monitoring equipment first. 
Confirmed compatibility with major DAW softwares
Thorough testing has been completed on all major DAW applications.

IF you are not home, the driver will leave a card in your mail box so you can pick-up from the local depot/post office or arrange a re-delivery. 
We have found it to be much quicker & easier to have all items sent to a business address where someone will be present.

Can I ask for the courier to leave the goods at my door?
Whilst it Is possible, we highly recommend that you do not do it. All freight warranty & insurance will be void. Only do so at your own risk, if someone steals it, Musos Corner & The freight company will not be held accountable.
If you will not be able to take the delivery, it might be worth asking a friend or neighbour to take delivery of it for you.

What if it appears my goods have been freight damaged?
Please check all items before signing for them! This is very important. Do not sign for an item that appears damaged, to sign for them means "Signed for in good working order" and subsequently is out of the couriers hands, and voids insurance. If this was not possible, there can be a 24 Hour window to try and claim insurance, please contact us & the courier immediately. This only applies to orders that have paid for Insurance & are sent via courier. 

Can the courier or delivery person call me prior to delivery?
Unfortunately as often as we request this, we get denied as many times. No courier or Australia post worker will call you prior to delivery despite any bribes we may try and offer.
If you select courier we will send you a tracking number which you can use to find out an estimated time of arrival for your goods, or alternatively have it sent to a business address.

Can I have my goods delivered on the weekend or after hours?
Unfortunately this is not possible at the current point in time, however you are welcome to pickup in store late night Thursday or on weekends from our Newcastle store. Please contact us to set a pickup time.

Products

Do i need to set up my product?
All guitars come fully set up ready to play (after a quick tuning). Banjos will need to be set up after delivery as they cannot be shipped set up unless they are bought with a case. Some products like piano stands require some basic assembly as they are flat packed for shipping. Digitial pianos and clavinovas may require some simple assembly.

Are all products brand new?
Yes! Everything we sell, unless clearly specified, is considered brand new with full warranty.
