Ideal for boom, parabolic and interview mics, the MD-1 provides phantom power, local monitoring and a line-level balanced output for noise immunity over long cable runs. Housed in a rugged steel chassis equipped with a belt clip and powered by two 9-Volt batteries (changing batteries does not require opening the case). Input stage has a level control with a 40dB range and a MIC/LINE input level switch, plus switchable 18V phantom power for condenser mics. Its output can be switch selected between stage and a straight loop-through. The headphone volume control provides 60dB range of adjustment to post-transformer input signal or to signals inserted at the headphone Line-In jack.
