In any audio device, the power supply is a significant contributor to sonic success or failure. In tube microphones this is even more so than anywhere else. The MP1 allows you to realise the full potential of your treasured vintage or contemporary tube mic. Hear your mike as never before.
“The MP1 allows you to realise the full potential of your treasured vintage or contemporary tube mic”
The 'MP1 | Grimm' re-writes the book on tube mic supplies. Drawing from the extensive expertise gained designing the supplies used in the AD1 and CC1 products, the MP1 uses discrete voltage regulators, a shunt regulator for the anode supply and a high precision series one for the filament supply. The anode supply offers noise as low as -100 dBV (in average 20 dB better than existing supplies) and the 'shunt' design turns the regulator into an active decoupling device, eliminating electrolytics. Voltages are factory pre-set to match the customer's microphone specs.
Stylish, compact and practical, the MP1 fits well on any recording stage.
Two MP1's combine to a 1HE 19" stereo set.
I was thrilled with your power supplies for my Neumann M50's. We used those mics for an upcoming Chandos release of the Kansas City Chorus, and they were stunning.
