The Model 404 Reference elevates the exposure of each individual instrument's texture exponentially when compared to the Standard version. Its fully discrete preamp section heightens dynamic awareness, while a custom-optimized high output stage ensures neutral character and transient fidelity. By employing a sophisticated selection of components, the design achieves a harmonious balance, preserving naturalness throughout the shortest possible signal path.
