Review: Sytek MPX-4Aii Four-Channel Microphone Preamplifier
Positives:4 channels of pro preamps for a good price
Negatives:No pad, no DI, no meters, kinda ugly
Basically 4 channels of professional, clean preamps for about $900. Options to add burr brown op amps for $10 more
I bought this preamp basically for toms and miscellaneous use. They are clean, decently quiet and quick. They have a simple gain knob, 48v, mute, phase, and a single red led for clip. What these preamps mostly lack is a pad. I wish these had a pad! When recording toms the gain knob is basically all the way down.
These pres are better than your average all in one interface pres by far but are lacking in features and character of more high end stuff. Good for supplementing your existing high end pres but not something I would base my entire system around.
