Las Vegas (December 6, 2005)–TransAudio Group, the U.S. distributor for A Designs Audio, is introducing a new series of switchable-tone MPA mic pres at Winter NAMM 2006, from January 19-22 in Anaheim, CA. The series includes the MP-1A all tube mono microphone preamplifier, the MP-2A all tube mono/mono stereo microphone preamplifier.
More than just a new look, these are the first mic pres designed with tone switches enabling the units to sound like totally different preamps. Each unit has two-tone switches per channel, and when used in combination, this results in four different sounds on each channel. The MP-1A has an MSRP of $1,800, and the MP-2A carries a $2,400 MSRP.
Additional features include a world-class Jensen input transformer, coupled with a custom wound output transformer to provide low-noise and high-performance users demand from a high-end mic pre. With 60dB gain, -20dB pad, balanced XLR input and output, a vintage VU meter, custom milled face plate, phantom switch, phase switch and a front panel direct inject 1/4 inch input jack.
