  • PREQ2-500

    Maag Pre-EQ2 500 Series Module

    The Mäag Audio PREQ2-500 is a single channel, 500-series version mic preamp with the same circuit topology and sound as our top-of-the-line Mäag Audio PREQ2™ dual-channel strip with Air Band®.

    The PREQ2-500 has a total of 71dB of class-A gain that starts with the same Mäag Audio-built nickel-core input transformer as the 1U dual channel PREQ2. Just like the PREQ2 dual channel strip, it includes afront panel ¼-inch (1-meg-ohm) instrument input jack that when used, automatically routes its signal to the input transformer and also disconnects the 48-volt phantom power if already turned on.

    The front panel continues with a ¼-inch thru/output jack that provides an unbalanced, isolated and boosted “duplicate” of either the low impedance microphone or the instrument inputs. The thru/output signal is capable of driving a long line out to guitar amps in the studio and/or effects pedals effectively and without quality loss. Great for creating unique effects, you may “re-amp” and externally process either the low impedance microphone input signal or any instrument directly connected to the PREQ2’s front panel ¼-inch input jack.

    The PREQ2-500 has an equivalent input noise (EIN) level of -128dBu, +25dBu of headroom, plus the acclaimed Air Band® EQ with up to 9dB of boost at your choice of 2.5, 5, 10, 20 and 40-kHz frequencies.

    Microphone gain is continuously variable using a single, large control knob that is switchable between two gain ranges of either +20dB to +42dB for most recordings or +42dB to +71dB using the +25dB boost button. This higher microphone gain is noise-free and perfect for very quiet sources like Foley/sound effects or low output, old vintage mics.

    The compact front panel finishes with push-button switches for +48-volt phantom power on/off, -20dB attenuation pad, a 70Hz, 2nd order 12dB/oct high pass filter, phase or polarity reverse, and Air Band® EQ on/off.
