    Nady DMP-2 reviews

    DMP-2 - Compact Microphone Preamp is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nady DMP-2 I use the unit at live performances. . . . . . basically at busking gigs. it is placed in front of my vocal mic to boost the signal to the level of my guitar which runs thru a (different) peamp. The NADY unit does the trick adequately tho it's a bit noisy for my taste.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bas Hiss with H4n Bought this to use with a Zoom H4n with the Hosa Technology 1/8 male to 2 XLR female Y-CABLE. I thought it would give me the ability to control the levels of each channel on the mic-in on the H4n and also give true 4 channel XLR input to the zoom with phantom power on every channel. Turning the levels down to 2-3 on the H4n and only using the gain on the Naddy still resulted in a very bad hiss with every mic I tried. Also using this through the xlr inputs of the H4n (with the phantom power off and levels low on the H4n) phantom power on the naddy, still resulted in unusable high hiss levels. This will not be a solution for those looking to boost the signal going into the Zoom from a low signal mic such as a RODE NTG2. It was worth a shot, but ended up returning it. The Hosa cable though works very well with the Zoom H4n with self-powered mics like the NTG2. Much better levels off the mic-in with the NTG2 battery powered than through the H4n's XLR in wether phantom powered or not. Other thoughts: Bulkier than I expected. Battery compartment is extremely difficult to get the 9v battery in.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why is it so huge. When I ordered this thing I was expecting a tiny preamp. This thing is bigger than a stack of 2 3.5 hard drives.The battery compartment is a joke, there is a piece of cardboard that prevents battery insertion. I had to yank it out but so far its all good. Nothing seems to short inside, I think designers were overly cautious.I've used the preamp for a little bit and I feel the other reviews saying its hissy or awful are using it improperly. Audio sounds perfectly clear, even when turned up. If you turn up too high there is distortion as you're obviously clipping. Now what does it actually output? Almost line level. Say what? Seriously, throw it on a line input and turn the gain all the way up, you'll just barely hear sound and yes it WILL be clipped.So what is this thing for? Its to amplify your mics to a level where whatever mediocre preamp you have in your *camera* or other device can be set to 0 or even - gains and the DMP-2 does the heavy lifting. Its for FIELD USE.. that is why there is a battery. What were you expecting? $1k professional mixer quality? Other solutions cost hundreds more. If you don't mind the size the price and results are nice. If you're getting hiss/noise/etc check your other equipment first.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Quite what you might expect ! The intent was to replace the M-Audio Buddy that is no longer made. The Audio feed thru and phantom power are clean. The draw backs on the DMP-2 is no Headphone out and the output impedence is 300 Ohm. It only runs on a 9V battery and with its current draw it would not run just over 4 hours on that. Still looking for a sutable replacement for the M-Audio Buddy Mike C.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect to mic a van tour guide My organization frequently gives tours to officials and potential funders in a large, 17 passenger van. Rather than shouting, the Nady portable, 9v battery powered preamp is working perfectly to match mic line level to the aux input of the van's car stereo system. And we have to thank B&H's customer service phone representative who, after we described our needs, provided us with several options.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Seemed Good at First We were initially happy with the unit overall, until it went out in the field three times and the volume knobs came off and disappeared. Not sure how that happened, maybe it was not really designed for field use?

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worth it? Well, I've tested it. I bought it in order to connect the mic stright to a Canon DSLR which mic preamp is awful (bad signal/noise ratio). I have an AT 897 that can work with a single battery or get energy from phantom power. I had the hope that the DMP-2 would increase the signal of the microphone. It did, but it only gave some more gain... If the signal with batteries got to -18db, then with DMP-2 phantom power you get -14db. If you try to give it gain with the volume buttom in the DMP-2, well, over half of path it makes too much noise, so makes it unusable. Other issue is the 9 volts battery it uses... First, if you wanna buy this device you must buy rechargable batteries and a charger. So it makes this cheap device not so cheap. Second, its hard to put the baterry inside the DMP-2, and more difficult is to take it out. After using a clamp the first time I realized it was impossible to pull the battery out using only my fingers, I put a small piece of cloth surrounding the battery, just to have something that let me pull it out. Besides the battery issue, you dont have no strap or hook or whatever to handle with the DMP-2 in the field. If I'll use it I will have to improvise a kind of strap. Otherwise I'll leave it at home. Conclusion, if you need portable phantom and have no choise this could be an option. But to use it as a good preamp, I don't think so.
