Part #: SP-PREAMP
Description:

Portable two channel (stereo) preamp with 9vdc "plug in power" to power mini microphones

Finally, great sounding, low noise, high quality preamp that runs on battery! This preamp will give you professional quality amplification for your microphones. Other similar preamps available (sometimes for under $50) offer similar amplification, but not with this low level of noise and distortion. When looking for mic preamp, it's important to look closely at the frequency response, noise and distortion specifications. If you don't see them, there is usually good reason! Previously, preamps of this quality cost several hundred dollars now, you can get professional quality for much less!

The output cable is available in two versions:A permanently installed "hardwired" cable or one of several removable cable options (see option box above). On the hardwired versions, there is power switch to turn the unit on and off. On the removable cable version, the power is turned off by unplugging the output cable.

Add set of built-in quality stereo mics here for only $20 more!
    - Used to raise high or low impedance microphone signal level to line level
    - amplifier gain ranges for maximum flexibility:
          - 0dB gain for recording loud sounds (loud rock concerts, etc.)
          - 22dB gain for recording medium sounds (acoustic music, lectures, meetings, rehearsals, etc.)
          - 42dB gain for recording quiet sounds (nature sounds, distant talking, soft spoken people, etc.)
        - Output level control
        - allows you to fine tune the output of the preamp within the gain range you select (especially useful for recorders that do not have recording level adjustments built-in). Note: This control comes after the amplifier, not before, to maximize performance and minimize noise.

      5 out of 5 stars Great little product! 00/00/0000
      Reviewer: Rich Thompson   (mdnewbie@hotmail.com) from PA
      Hi: I ordered this little preamp figuring that it would be OK...but I am amazed. It really sound good...much quieter than the preamp built into my MD recorder, and costs about half what similiar portable preamos cost. All in all, a nice small package and gret sound. I highly recommend it!

      5 out of 5 stars Small is Beautiful 00/00/0000
      Reviewer: Tony   from London, United Kingdom
      The hidden gem in the Sound Professionals range is the Otter box you can order with the preamp built in. If you get the binaural microphones and external mike socket, you have a CD quality recording studio in the palm of your hand. I used this recently in front row seats at a (loud but unamplified) brass band concert recently, and the resulting recording compares favourably to some commercial CDs. By the way, I bought the band's own CD as well, so they didn't miss out on their royalties! Great product, good price, and friendly service. Strongly recommended
