Product Description

The ART Pro MPA II two channel microphone preamp is the next generation in affordable high performance microphone preamp technology. Each microphone input circuit, with selectable 48v phantom power, features variable input impedance which can radically vary the overall performance of any high quality dynamic or ribbon microphone. The Pro MPA II can be configured for dual mono or stereo operation with selectable mid/side mic support, summing the adjacent channel, to decode left/right signals.

The Pro MPA II can operate at either a low or high plate voltage on the two integrated hand-selected 12AX7 tubes for wider variation of preamp tone and performance. Large back-lit analog VU output meters display input or output levels while multi-colored LED arrays, with average or peak hold, show tube gain.

Housed in a standard 2 space rack-mountable steel chassis, with CNC routed black anodized aluminum face panel, the ProMPA II is designed to deliver years of reliable operation in the studio, production facility, or on the road for live sound reinforcement.

  • Variable Input Impedance For Flexible Microphone Voicing (150 Ohms To 2400 Ohms)

ART makes GREAT preamps!!
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
i currently own 3 of the ART preamps and they're all amazing and not just because they're affordable but because you really get a great sound and a whole lot of features at your finger tips. the impedance control knob gives you lots of flexibility and lets you get the most out of your various microphones. the stock tubes aren't bad persay but you should swap them out to really make these units shine. also be mindful of the effects of RFI/EMI on tube amps. i have an excessive amount of EMI/RFI in my area and it caused my preamps to act in a very strange manner at first. if you want more info on that feel free to hit me up but to make a long story short i picked up a Furman PL Plus-C and knocked that nasty interference right out;^)
