Product Details

ART PRO MPA II Professional 2-Channel Mic Preamp

The new ART PRO MPA 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 PRO MPA 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. The PRO MPA 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 output levels while multi-colored LED arrays show tube gain. Housed in a standard 2U space rack-mountable steel chassis with CNC routed black anodized aluminum face panel, the PRO MPA II is designed to deliver years of reliable operation in the studio, production facility, or on the road for live sound reinforcement.

Specifications: • Frequency response 15 Hz to 48 kHz (+0, -1 dB) @ normal plate voltage; 15 Hz to 120 kHz (+0, -1 dB) @ high plate voltage • Dynamic range: >110 dB ("A" weighted) • CMRR: >90 dB • THD: <0.005% (typical) • Equivalent input noise: -129 dBu (XLR, "A" weighted) • Maximum input level: +19 dBu (cannon) • Maximum instrument input: +17 dBu • Input impedance: 150-3000 ohms adjustable (XLR); >800K ohms (Instrument) • Maximum output level: +27 dBu (XLR) • Output impedance: < 47 ohms (XLR) • Maximum gain: 75 dB • Meter Calibration: 0 VU = +4 dBu output (+4 dB mode); 0 VU = -10 dBV output (-10 dB mode) • High pass filter: single pole, 10-200 Hz adjustable • Power requirements (USA): 105 to 125 VAC, 60 Hz • Dimensions: 3.50" H x 19.0" W x 8.75" D (88 x 482 x 222 mm) • Weight: 10.5 lbs.

ART PRO MPA II Professional 2-Channel Mic Preamp

would this item work as described below for a home stereo?

i was thinking about using it with, an ART CLEANBoxPro Stereo Balanced/Unbalanced Converter. and 2 Dayton Audio APA150 150W Power Amplifiers. for the left and right channels.
Asked by: smokemonster
These units are not designed to be used in the manner you describe. One consideration that comes to mind is the issue of separating left and right channels from your source device for true stereo operation. You may be able to get something put together that would suit your purposes, however, I'd suggest going a more conventional route.
