Manufacturer's Description from Tube-Tech

The TUBE-TECH MP2A Microphone preamplifier/DI is based on our classic MP1A but features improved fidelity and new features. 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 MP2A immediately shows a sound quality second to none and places the preamp amongst a handful of the worlds very best designs.

MP2A features an impedance switch to perfectly match the input to all different types of microphones, including the increasing amount of popular ribbon mic's. The impedance switch furthermore opens up several creative possibilities in changing the character of the MP2A input.

Gain is adjustable in 2 dB steps. Overload is now indicated with a red LED.

The MP2A DI carries on the tradition of the very good sounding TUBE-TECH DI's and delivers even better quality for Bass and Guitar DI recording. A DI input simply doesn't get any better than this!

The input provides switchable +48 V phantom power, selectable mic. impedance of 600/1200/2400 Ohm, phase reverse switch, low-cut filter (20 Hz/40 Hz/off), as well as a switchable -20 dB pad.

Gain is adjustable from +10 dB to +70 dB.( 10db steps, coarse +2 dB steps, fine.)

The Direct Instrument Input are unbalanced with a gain ranging from + 10 dB to + 60 dB.

The amplifier is all tube. Input transformer is enclosed in a MU-metal can. Input and output transformers come with a static screen between the primary and secondary wirings. The input and output are balanced as well as fully floating.

About Manufacturer

STATEMENT It is our mission to ensure the engineer has confidence in his working tools and feels comfortable working with them. To achieve this, it is our job to bring out the very best in the tubes, as well as continuously strive to offer the professional audio engineer outboard equipment of sublime quality ? both in terms of sound and reliability. Lydkraft ApS was founded in 1977 by partners John G. Petersen, Niels Wors?e and Karsten Bruun. Originally the core business of the company was PA, which was a successful venture until 1980, when the partnership was cancelled ? and Mr. Petersen decided to take Lydkraft on his own shoulders. The company was relocated to the interimistic surroundings of Mr. Petersens garage.... Mr. Petersen now redefined the business focus of Lydkraft: He terminated the PA business entirely and focused his efforts towards design, development and manufacturing. During this period small production runs of direct boxes, mixing desks and speaker systems were manufactured as well. In the early 80?s, the demand for vintage tube gear was increasing at a rapid pace. But at the same time tube equipment became more and more scarce by the day. The idea of taking on development & manufacturing of recording equipment with tubes came about in 1984. The first tube-based unit bearing the name TUBE-TECH was developed as an almost direct copy of the Pultec EQP 1A. The tubes of TUBE-TECH Program Equalizer PE 1A glowed for the first time in 1985 and the very first shipment containing 30 units stood ready in June 1985. Next in line was the TUBE-TECH PE 1B and TUBE-TECH Midrange Equalizer ME 1A, soon followed by the TUBE-TECH Compressor Limiter CL 1A and the TUBE-TECH Microphone Preamp MP 1A in 1987.
