The 2-channel ART DMPA Pro Mic Pre with Digital Outs is one of the finest microphone preamps with digital capability available. The enhanced discrete front end maintains every nuance, revealing incredible dynamic range.

Variable Input Impedance optimizes the ART DMPA for performance with a wide range of microphones. This infinitely adjustable variation dramatically alters the performance of the microphone and creates more sonic possibilities.

The selectable Tube Plate Voltage function delivers a wide variety of tones. The tube circuit is differential and provides the equivalent of a 300V power supply on the high voltage setting. With very low self-noise, the normal setting maintains classic tube preamp sounds.

The MPA Gold's unique tube circuitry utilizes 2 - 12AX7A vacuum tubes and renders unsurpassed detail and clarity with a broad range of mics. The ART DMPA Pro provides gain with controlled overload while maintaining the dynamic range of the previous stage.

In addition to the large VU meters, the MPA Gold has Tube Warmth LED metering which measures the left and right audio channel levels. Average level attack and release are measured in milliseconds and the peak function has a 20 microsecond attack time. The analog meter range is switchable between -10dB and +4dBU. The high pass filter is continuously variable from 15Hz-150Hz.

Both analog and digital outputs allow you to take advantage of the DMPA's preamp power with the widest range of formats, including AES/EBU, S/PDIF. TOSLINK, and ADAT interfaces. The Digital MPA provides 24-bit processing and can adapt to 16-bit applications with the push of a button. The A/D is front panel adjustable from 44.1 to 192k. Syncs to ADAT and external word clock (32kHz-100kHz).
