ART tube preamp gets USB connection

New USB-equipped preamp from ART
ART have announced a new product in their desktop preamp range, the Tube MP Project USB. It provides, as the name suggests, USB connectivity alongside all the features of the standard Tube MP Project preamp.

The unit is a single-channel phantom-powered preamp with a 12AX7 vacuum tube. It's got line, instrument and microphone connections, with a total gain range of 70dB. There’s also LED metering and buttons for phase inversion, a high-pass filter and a -20dB pad. The preamp has two switchable input impedances — high and low — and an automatic output limiter.

The Tube MP Project USB links to the host computer via a standard USB 1.1 connection and ships with an external power supply. Both the Project and Project USB can be stacked one on top of the other, allowing multiple preamps to occupy a very small footprint. It will be available in June costing £125. Check out the ART web site for more details.
