Chicago-based Black Lion Audio started off as modifiers of vintage audio equipment. They decided to channel their knowledge and experience into producing their own boutique hardware, becoming one of the hottest names in the business. The Auteur MkII Quad is one of their most popular & versatile preamps, striking the perfect balance between transparency and warmth.

Here’s what Black Lion say:

The Auteur Quad is the four channel version rack mount of our ever popular Auteur MK2 preamp. The Auteur preamp has become a studio staple over the last decade and is known for its fast, transparent IC based front end while also providing a fat, colourful back end via edcor transformers. This mixture of vintage and modern design approaches has led the Auteur to be known as the “Swiss army knife of preamps” that sounds great on everything.

It especially shines on sources that require detail but also benefit from some thickness such as drums or vocals. Some of the major additions to the Quad over the 2 channel half rack unit would be the all new meters on all four channels as well as borrowing the loved DI circuit from our 500 series Auteur on the first 2 channels. This feature set as well as channel count gives you one of the most affordable preamps in the world at an unbelievable price.
