AES 2010: BAE DMP & DLB (Video)

Desktop Mic Pre and 2-Slot Portable 500 PSU

Brent Averill Engineering (BAE) were at the AES 2010 show in San Francisco recently to show off some of their latest wares. The DMP (Desktop Mic Preamp) is a portable preamp/DI unit that is based on that found in Neve’s classic 1073 module. Accordingly, it employs the same Carhill transformers as the original, and is built into a solid steel chassis. Its features include separate input and output gain controls, a polarity-invert switch, and a switch for applying 48V phantom power. The DMP accommodates high-impedance instrument-level signals via a quarter inch jack input, while two DI Thru outputs pass the instrument-level signal onto other destinations, and the male XLR socket outputs audio at line level. The BAE DMP is shipping now, and carries a price in the US of around $1000.

Also on display was the DLB, or Desktop Lunchbox. Identical in size and external construction to the DMP, the DLB is designed to house two API Lunchbox-compatible modules, so you can take your favourite preamps or processors out for location-recording or live-sound duties. There’s little else to say about the latter, other than that it is expected to sell for around $425 on its own, or can be pre-fitted with one BAE 312 preamp module for $900, or with two 312s for $1600.
