SCV continues its history in the distribution of high quality audio equipment with the addition of Millennia products. This prestigious line, well known to studio and live recording engineers the world over, joins many other top lines at SCV.
The Millennia product line has expanded over the years from a single pre-amp model to include the unique Twin Topology® tube / solid state designs, dynamics processors and equalizers, the STT-1 Origin rack mount input channel, the TD-1, compact recording channel, and a portfolio of high-performance tools for specialized audio applications. At the heart of the HV3 pre-amp range is a transformerless design with matched hi-speed discrete transistor octet that has 23 dB input headroom: no attenuator “pads” needed. They offer uncoloured timbral accuracy at all dynamic levels which has lead to over 25,000 channels being sold to date.
Managing Director Julian Blyth comments “Millennia Music and Media Systems make products that are internationally respected and I feel privileged to offer them the kind of distribution such a range deserves.”
Founder, John La Grou’s, passion for audio was sparked when his dad brought home the first stereo reel-to-reel home tape recorder, a 1/4" half-track machine made by the Voice of Music Company. John starting playing electric guitar at seven and was building amplifiers and guitar pedals in junior high school. After his first AES Convention – 1974 at the LA Hilton – he was hooked on audio for life.
John founded Millennia Media working around Northern California as a classical music recording engineer in 1991. He worked with some of the world’s greatest classical and jazz artists and today, Millennia’s remote division produces scores of recordings each year for public radio and other clients.
Millennia’s engineering and manufacturing division was conceived during John’s earliest recording sessions with the Sacramento Symphony. Realizing that the recording equipment then available was limiting his ability to achieve great sonic results, John determined to apply his years of experience in recording and audio design to develop tools that would respond to the most critical and creative professionals in the industry.
Millennia has grown continuously, delivering increasingly more preamps in each successive year. Millennia have never lost sight of their vision and commitment. Absolute sonic and musical purity, uncompromised product build quality and longevity, and unparalleled customer focus are and always will be their highest priorities.
