Absolute Accuracy, Plus a Rich Tonal Palette

With over 130 signal topologies - everything from minimalist, pure Class A gain to complex "larger than life" processor chains - STT-1 could be the only front end you'll ever need. For the producer/engineer/musician who needs fast, easy access to a vastly expanded sonic palette with uncompromised signal integrity, there's no better tool. Easily and quickly patch vacuum tube preamplifiers or processors with discrete solid state Class-A circuits. Use transformer or transformerless coupling through wide-ranging inputs and outputs. The choice - and the sound - is entirely yours.

Authentic Sonic Signatures

All Origin signal processing circuits are identical to the acclaimed stand-alone Millennia products used by world-class recording and mastering engineers. This kind of purity means you can adjust dynamics or EQ without compromising the integrity of the source. The track will sit exactly where you want it in the mix, yet the processing is so clear it seems part of the original.

Input Transformer Option

Millennia circuits are inherently transformerless: it's the truest path to the accuracy and realism we seek. But on aggressive sources such as drums and electric bass, we're also fans of transformer-coupled inputs such as Rupert Neve's original Class-A, all-discrete designs from the 1960s. Our custom MIT-01 transformer provides its own "fat" euphonic coloration, adding pleasing distortion at high dynamic levels and wide frequency excursions. It may not be lifelike, but the larger than life sound can really cut through the mix.

Digital Needs Warmth, Demands Total Clarity

Microphone preamplifiers magnify the input as much as 1000:1. There's no "Undo" after this point. Coloration or distortion become part of the signal. Lost information can never be recovered. Data compression algorithms (MPG, AC3, DTS etc.) are unable to distinguish signal from noise, so preserving the clarity and integrity of the signal through the recording and production process is critical to communicating the artist's intention and individuality. Millennia's unique designs avoid circuit-induced artifacts, giving you total control. Amplify the original sonic information with an absolute minimum of alteration, or apply tonal colors so authentic they seem to become part of the source itself.

You Can Pay More, You Can't Spend Less

Initial purchase price is never a design target at Millennia Media. Millennia strives to maximize return on investment and minimize lifetime cost. Designed for the world's most critical recordings, STT-1 is the choice of top audio professionals worldwide. This is a toolbox you can build a career around, one that will remain essential no matter how far your sonic explorations take you. Acquiring an Origin is a step off the upgrade treadmill: a step that will ultimately save you much more than your initial investment.
