Mic Preamps
TransX
Two Channel Transformer Isolated Descrete Transistor Preamp

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.

  • Input Transformer blocks R.F. and other noise
  • Custom Output Transformer reduces ground noise and maintains level for Balance/Unbalanced connections
  • Low noise, low THD discrete audio path
  • High impedance direct coupled low noise Instrument input
  • Variable input impedance on the XLR input
  • Rotary switches allow for reliable, repeatable results
  • Gain trim function for precise adjustment of gain
  • 20dB pad allows high level XLR input signals
  • Wide range peak sensitive LED meter
  • Phase reverse switch
  • Auto muting on outputs
  • Ground lift function on each channel's outputs
  • Universal External supply reduces noise and lowers power consumption
  • Rugged, reliable steel chassis shields the preamp from external noise
