Two Channel Transformer Isolated Descrete Transistor Preamp (Manual)
The TransX two channel microphone preamplifier features a new low noise discrete transformer coupled high performance preamplification circuit. Building upon the quality and success of great sounding products like the Pro MPA II and the Pro VLA II, ART engineers set out to develop the next generation of professional microphone preamplifier to compliment our tube-based preamps. The TransX sets a new standard for quality and value. Professional features and spectacular tone are what make the TransX a world-class microphone preamplifier.
