The MP 2A is a combined mic preamp/DI, based on a classic TUBE-TECH design, but featuring even higher fidelity and a few new features: An impedance switch to match the input perfectly to all types of microphones, an overload indicator and 2 dB gain steps.
MP2A is the second in the new range of upgraded microphone preamplifier/DI’s.( The modular PM1A was the first.)
These new preamps features even higher headroom and fidelity than the earlier TUBE-TECH micpre”s.
Serious listening tests of the MP 2A have revealed a sound quality second to none, placing it among a handful of the worlds very best designs.
The MP 2A DI continues the TUBE-TECH tradition of extremely good sounding DI’s, delivering world class sound for bass and guitar DI recordings. You simply won’t find a better DI than this!
The TUBE-TECH MP2A is a combined Microphone Preamplifier and Direct Instrument amplifier.
The input provides switchable +48 V phantom power, selectable mic. impedance of 600/1200/2400 Ohm, phase reverse switch, low-cut filter (20 Hz/40 Hz/off), as well as a switchable -20 dB pad.
Gain is adjustable from +10 dB to +70 dB.( 10db steps, coarse +2 dB steps, fine.)
The Direct Instrument Input are unbalanced with a gain ranging from + 10 dB to + 60 dB.
The amplifier is all tube. Input transformer is enclosed in a MU-metal can. Input and output transformers come with a static screen between the primary and secondary wirings.
The input and output are balanced as well as fully floating.
