TransAudio Group ships Daking Mic-Pre One
TransAudio Group, the worldwide distributor for Daking, is now shipping the Daking Mic-Pre One single-channel microphone/instrument preamplifier. Sharing the gain structure and Class A, fully-discrete transistor circuitry design of the popular Daking Mic-Pre IV, the Mic-Pre One additionally features a unique variable high-pass filter and ships in a freestanding “DI-style” steel enclosure, ensuring both strength and noise immunity.
Essentially a single channel of the Mic-Pre IV, the Mic-Pre One features switchable-phase, 20dB mic input pad and +48V phantom power, plus a selectable 1/4in line/hi-z instrument input, all using relays with gold bifurcated contacts. Two large knurled aluminum knobs control the variable high-pass filter (0Hz-200Hz) and continuously variable input gain, which is complemented by a full-width, 20-segment bicolor LED meter. The rear of the unit offers a Jensen transformer-isolated mic input and fully balanced XLR output, plus a 1/4in line output. A fourth connector introduces DC power from the external power supply to the unit.
