    ART Digital MPAII Microphone Preamplifier Product Description

    The ART Digital MPA-II delivers all of the same great features of the ProMPA with the added versatility of digital output. Like the ProMPA-II, each input circuit has 48v phantom power and features variable input impedance which can radically vary the overall performance of any high quality dynamic or ribbon microphone. The Digital 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.


    - Variable input impedance for flexible microphone voicing (150 Ohms to 2400 Ohms)
    - Selectable plate voltage
    - Large VU meters
    - Backlit function switches
    - Discrete Class-A input microphone preamplifier
    - Low noise at lower gain settings
    - Extremely low total harmonic distortion (THD)
    - Wide frequency response
    - Additional front mounted instrument input jack
    - Operates at +4dbm/-10dbv output
    - Selectable stereo/dual operation of output controls
    - Automatic instrument input selection
    - 24-204KHz external sample rate
    - 44.1K, 48K, 88.2K, 96K, 176.4K, 192K internal sample rates
    - 24/16 bit switchable dithering
    - Wide dynamic range A/D
    - Rotary Encoder for quick selection of sample rate
    - Separate analog and digital output level controls
    - Digital Level LED meters display both Average and Peak level
    - ADAT optical I/O
    - Sync to incoming ADAT data rate
    - Switch selectable optical output (S/PDIF or ADAT)
    - AES/EBU and S/PDIF outputs
    - Two wordclock jacks allowing loop through

    The input section of the Digital MPA-II operates at either a low or high plate voltage applied to the two integrated hand-selected 12AX7 tubes for wider variation of preamp tone and performance. Large back-lit analog VU output meters display input or output levels while multi-colored LED arrays, with average or peak hold, show tube gain and digital output levels.

    In addition to XLR and 1/4-inch analog outputs, the Digital MPA-II features a high quality A to D converter which offers digital connectivity on S/PDIF, ADAT, or AES/EBU outputs. A rotary control on the front panel allows selection of format and sample rates from 44.1 to 192 KHz and 16 bit dithering. There is also a push button for, and two wordclock jacks, allowing loop-through.

    The Digital MPA-II comes in a standard 2u space rack-mountable steel chassis, with CNC routed black anodized aluminum face panel.
