DPA Microphones' MSB6000 Master Sum Box is part of DPA's Microphone Summation System: a professional, cost-effective way to amplify orchestral string instruments (using up to ten mics) and combine those signals into one stereo feed. The Master Sum Box accepts phantom power from two mixer channels and shares it with other system components. It also takes input from a SSB6000 Stereo Satellite Box and outputs a stereo image to your mixer. Two high-performance, Lundahl transformer-coupled mic preamps ensure that your string section sounds detailed and clean.
The MSB6000 connects to a Satellite Box using 4-pin XLR cables. Phantom power lights for each channel indicate when power is present.
