An affordable high-performance, 2-channel microphone preamp.
The new ART ProMPA II 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 ProMPA 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.
ProMPA 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 rack unit 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.
