M-Audio DMP3 Dual Microphone/Instrument Preamp

Based on the M-Audio preamp technology that won Pro Audio Review's highest accolades, the DMP3's amazing 20Hz to 100kHz frequency response makes it ideal for today's 96k recording work. You also get exceptional dynamic range to capture all the nuances of your music—not to mention an unbelievable 66dB of gain. And the classic VU meters are just one indication of the soul you'll find in the DMP3's sound. Whether you use it live or in the studio, the DMP3 2-channel microphone/instrument preamp is a piece of gear destined to be integral in defining your sound.
