MP2A is the second in the new range of upgraded microphone preamplifier/DI’s.( The modular PM1A was the first.) These new preamps features even higher headroom and fidelity than the earlier TUBE-TECH micpre"s. Serious listening tests of the MP 2A have revealed a sound quality second to none, placing it among a handful of the worlds very best designs. The MP 2A DI continues the TUBE-TECH tradition of extremely good sounding DI’s, delivering world class sound for bass and guitar DI recordings. You simply won’t find a better DI than this!
