By PSW Staff • December 18, 2008 Daking Mic-Pre One TransAudio Group, the worldwide distributor for Geoffrey Daking and Company, Inc., is now shipping the Daking Mic-Pre One single-channel microphone/instrument preamplifier. Sharing the gain structure and Class A, fully-discrete transistor circuitry design of the popular Daking Mic-Pre IV, the Mic-Pre One additionally features a unique variable high-pass filter and ships in a freestanding ‘DI-style’ steel enclosure, insuring both strength and noise immunity. Essentially a single channel of the Mic-Pre IV, the Mic-Pre One features switchable phase, 20 dB mic input pad, and +48V phantom power, plus a selectable 1/4-inch line/hi-z instrument input, all utilizing relays with gold bi-furcated contacts. Two large knurled aluminum knobs control the variable high-pass filter (0-200Hz) and continuously variable input gain, which is complemented by a full-width, twenty-segment bi-color LED meter. The rear of the unit offers a Jensen transformer-isolated mic input and fully-balanced XLR output, plus a 1/4-inch line output. A fourth connector introduces DC power from the external power supply to the unit. Noted Brad Lunde, president of TransAudio Group, “This Mic-Pre One is the very definition of value – a Daking-designed high-end mic pre for those who only need one channel. It’s ideal for pros on tour and studios that seek to locate the mic pre in the vocal booth for short cable runs. Small project studios on a limited budget can now use the same high-end sounding gear as the pros.” Made in the USA, Daking Mic-Pre One MSRP is $850.
