Custom STLX Transformers
The MD2 Pro features two of Samson's STLX Mu-Metal shielded transformers that deliver an extended, flat frequency response with ultra-low distortion and superior protection against hum and RF interference. The MD2 Pro's balanced outputs provide clean signals that are less susceptible to noise than unbalanced lines, allowing for longer cable runs. The MD2 Pro also includes a 3-position 0dB/-10dB/-20dB attenuation switch for each input to toggle between line and speaker level signals, as well as a Stereo/Mono sum switch.

Thru Jack
The MD2 Pro's Thru jacks enable you to tap off the signals from the inputs and pass the signals to amplifiers or monitors without affecting the original audio. This can eliminate the need for miking guitar amplifiers, which depending on your application may be preferable, especially as more musicians are using in-ear monitors.

Roadworthy Construction
Housed in a 14-gauge steel chassis, the MD2 Pro is built to withstand the abuse of the most demanding live tours. Its rigid outer shell protects all the MD2 Pro’s internal connections, switches and solder joints from failure, ensuring quiet, reliable performance.
