CharterOak (booth #763) will demonstrate the next in its line of preamps and signal processors, the MPA-1, a solid-state, dual-channel microphone preamplifier.
The MPA-1 employs the highest-quality components in a design that provides high headroom. Its transformerless input circuitry and transformer-balanced output give the engineer the best of both worlds. With the input and output gain controls, the engineer can carefully control the signal from ultra-clean and transparent, to pleasant coloration added by the MPA-1’s output stage and Cinemag output transformer.
The MPA-1 is also fitted with constantly variable highpass and lowpass filters that encompass the entire bandwidth of the device, a -6dB pad, +48VDC phantom power and phase reverse.
