The PR8E from SM Pro Audio is an eight channel microphone preamp that features XLR/TRS "Combo" input connectors, 48V phantom power and a built-in -20dB pad, switchable for each channel. Individual phase reversal switches are provided next to the eight balanced output sockets on the rear panel.

The unit's carefully structured single circuit board design results in an exceptionally low noise pre-amp level while delivering high gain. Tailored to suit a wide variety of applications, the PR8E is perfectly suited for use as a front-end device for many hard disc recording systems, as well as adding additional microphone preamps to digital mixers and sound cards.

      Comments about SM Pro Audio PR8E - Microphone Preamplifier:

      I use this preamp for live sound applications to boost mike outputs for a stage monitor system. This is the only 8-channel preamp I've found in this price range and it's a well-made, solid performer. B&H had the best price and their usual flawless service made this purchase a no-brainer!
