Nady PRA-8 overview

  • 1Description

The PRA-8 from Nady is an 8-channel microphone preamp housed in a single rack-space chassis. The unit is a professional, multi-purpose preamplifier designed for the most exacting studio applications, yet affordable enough for home project studios.

It solves many of the connectivity problems arising in studio and live sound applications that arise from using digital audio interfaces which may only consist of unbalanced line inputs or very low (or no microphone pre) gain structure.

Each channel features individually switchable phantom power with LED indicators and individual clip LEDs. The rugged chassis includes an internal, universal power supply.

Eight totally independent preamps in a single rack chassis with servo-balanced XLR inputs and 1/4" TRS outputs for each preamp
Ultra-linear, high bandwidth operational amps for no-compromise crystal clear audio
Exceptionally low noise and negligible distortion
Individual gain control and peak LED indicator on each channel with up to 75dB of gain
+48V phantom power with individual On/Off switches and phantom power On LED indicators for each channel
Rugged construction for maximum long-term reliability
Shielded internal dual regulated power supply with voltage select switch and fused IEC power cord connector

    Nady PRA-8 reviews

    PRA-8 - Microphone Preamp is rated 1.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor product I bought this to use as a front end for a delta 1010 sound card. Its output is noisy, and it has a poor frequency response.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Noisy pres no line level out Its the most convenient option at the price but it has really noisy preamps, especially when up high enough for dynamic mics.
