Manufacturer's Description from Daking

The Mic Pre II is a two channel dual mono microphone preamp.

The Mic Pre II combines two of Daking’s celebrated stand-alone Mic Pre One units in a single rack space form factor for the surprisingly low price. Like the Mic Pre One, the Mic Pre EQ, and the Mic Pre IV, the Daking Mic Pre II circuitry is based on a classic console design of the ’80s with some upgrades: Variable High Pass Filters on each channel, Jensen input transformers, class “A” amplification, extremely high headroom (+24) and a single-sided 48V power supply.

The Mic Pre II’s high pass filter is continuously variable from 10-200Hz, and drops at 12dB per octave. It seems to have a magical ability to clean up the muck while making what remains sound even better. It is extremely helpful to DAW users who inadvertently record subsonics that muddy up tracks and mixes.
