    The industry's standard for parabolic, boom, and interview mic situations, the MD-1 is the ideal mic preamp for those who demand studio quality in a rugged, battery operated package.

    Combines a high quality mic/line input stage with a transformer isolated line driver and independent headphone amplifier. 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.

    Ideally suited for general purpose audio signal testing and amplifier tool for the broadcast equipment box.
