Bainbridge Island, WA (October 7, 2008)–Lavry Engineering has released its LavryBlack MP10 stereo microphone preamplifier. The MP10 embodies Dan Lavry’s design philosophy of sonic transparency. With features like wide-range, digitally controlled, analog gain circuitry, impedance switch, and balanced or unbalanced outputs, the MP10 is aimed for both home and studio recording environments.
Gain settings from 20 to 75 dBs give the MP10 enough range to accommodate low-output ribbon microphones, or feed unbalanced “-10 dBV” inputs using high-output condenser microphones without loss of signal quality.
The MP10 also features ultra low distortion and noise; transformerless input and output; high/low z switch, which optimizes input for ribbon or condenser and dynamic mics; a balanced/unbalanced output switch; large, detailed LED level meters with 42 dB range; and triple-regulated phantom power, selectable per channel.
An optional LavryBlack rackmount is available to mount two LavryBlack units side by side in a 19-inch 1U space.
