A superior plug-in replacement for Sony MXP3000-series console mic preamps. The MPC-3000 drastically improves performance by using a combination of the Jensen JT-16-B mic input transformer (Jensen's best mic input model), the 990C discrete class-A op-amp, and the total absence of coupling capacitors in the signal path. Just plug it in!

Jensen's JT-16-B Input Transformer

990 Discrete Class-A Op-Amp

Elimination of all coupling capacitors from the signal path

1% 100ppm Metal Film Resistors

Electrolytic Capacitors with a 105C Temperature rating

Fully Sealed 25-turn Cermet Trim Pots
