from 48V power to stereo preamp
perfects tools for films
"Why another preamp?"
Staris is a compact and lightweigth stereo preamplifier. PWL is an autonomous +48 Volts phantom power source. Both run on a single AA battery. All are built in south of France near Toulouse, from the best components available on the market.
Lebel audio products are built with simple rules: work with the nearest partners. Bare electronic boards are produced in Rhône valley, the housings are machined a couple of kilometers away from the workshop. The whole products are then assembled in our workshop at Villefranche de Rouergue.
Lebel audio expertise comes from the experience of its founder and CEO Nicolas BOYER. Since the 10's he spent a lot of time working on various shooting as a sound recordist. From the numerous problems he encounter, Nicolas, with the support of his fellow friends, imagined, engineered and built a serie of products that can improve our job everyday: preamp on the boompole, quick installation, easy to use, harsh conditions. Lebel audio was born.
Now our clients are always full of suggestions about new functionalites to improve our products. Don't hesitate to give us feedback or ask us something special.
Easy to use
As usual you need to find quickly the optimum gain, or to deploy your boompole. No time for digital menus when camera is rolling!
We spend a lot of time to find the perfect balance between size, weight, robustness and performances.
Because the AA battery is the cheapest, the most common in the world, we only need one to run Lebel products.
StARIS stereo PREAMPLIFIER
The Staris preamplifier is perhaps the smallest and lightweight solution to operate a couple of microphones in embedded audio systems. On a boompole with stereo transmitters or under a DSLR, you can have an instant control over the gains. The recessed potentiometer will keep your levels safe. The microphones are powered with +48V Phantom. No external powering, Staris only need a single AA battery to operate. Thanks to its high quality design, Staris sound is free from broadband noise and RF interferences.
PWL Phantom for wireless
Need a wireless boompole? PWL is the ideal tool to connect a studio microphone with a standard wireless transmitter. It provides +48V Phantom for the microphone, and converts the signal from balanced to unbalanced audio. No need to adjust any gain on the PWL, because it has enough dynamic range (+6dBu max) and ultra-low noise electronic (-120dBu).
Moreover, the PWL turns on and off automatically with the transmitter.
In brief: plug it, insert a battery, enjoy!
