Design Philosophy

Millennia started life as a classical music production company, working mostly with N. California symphony orchestras. Our original HV-3 front-end was designed specifically for critical acoustic recording, maintaining acoustic purity and dynamic realism without regard to manufacturing cost. Word spread about our designs and recording engineers worldwide were asking us to build HV-3's for them. That was 25 years ago. Since those early years, we've become a foremost provider of ultra-high-performance recording equipment, and the world's most-used outboard microphone preamplifier for critical music recording (symphony orchestra, film scoring, critical acoustic, etc.). Our design philosophy has never varied. We continue to apply the most rigorous practices to audio design and manufacturing. If a Millennia circuit (preamp, EQ, dynamics, etc.) isn't the most accurate, neutral, dynamically-stable instrument of its type, we continue working until it is. It's no surprise that Millennia products demand among the highest resale values in pro audio today.
