ART TPSII 2-Channel Tube Preamp

ART TPSII Two Channel Tube Preamplifier

ART TPS II Details
The ART TPS II (Tube Preamp System 2) is a two channel high performance preamplifier coupled with ARTâ??s proprietary V3â"˘ (Variable Valve Voicing) functionality. With variable valve voicing, the ART TPS II is completely versatile and maintains a high quality of performance you would expect from an ART tube preamp. The ART TPS II also features variable input impedance which allows users to dial in and match any microphone type from large condensers to ribbon mics.


Like itâ??s predecessor, the DPS, our newly improved V3 feature provides optimized reference points to begin the recording process for guitars, bass guitars, synths, acoustic instruments, percussion, vocals and more. Unique to itsâ?? class, the ART TPS II provides level monitoring with two analog meters as well as two newly added input monitoring LED meters. High-Z instruments or balanced microphone signals are input through front and rear panel jacks.


This newly enhanced TPS II can accept +20 dB peaks while maintaining over 120 dB dynamic range, quiet performance and incredibly low distortion.


ARTâ??s legendary tube stage maintains our classic â??warm soundâ?ť and adds additional tube voicing specifically tailored to vocal, guitar, bass, and acoustic instruments making the ART TPS II an incredible DI box. Our OPLâ"˘ (Output Protection Limiting) feature is also included to control overshoots and normalize levels before clipping occurs.


The ART TPS II was conceived, designed and manufactured to the highest standards to provide years of quiet, reliable performance. Audition one, and you too will know why the ART TPS II is indeed the most cost effective professional mic preamp system youâ??ll find on the market today.

Recommended for home studios January 12, 2010

A solid, clean, quiet piece of equipment. The "Variable Valve Voicing", tailored to various instruments or vocals, and the "Output Protection Limiting" are both useful features for home studios. I've never used it as a direct box, so I can't comment on that feature. I've owned this unit for three or four years and it's performed really well for me, providing reliably good sound.

ART TPSII Review January 12, 2010
Reviewer: gtivr6fan from tampa, FL United States  
ok, so I didn't have a lot of money or knowledge when I bought one of these, just a thirst for some tube warmth. So I ttok the plunge and bought one of these TPS's. Although I wasn't blown away by the sound it seemed to be a pretty solid piece of equipment, with some cool features.
The V3 voicing actually accomplishes what it sets out to do. There are distinct differences in the multiple settings, and makes it easy for a novice... at the time... like me.
A few years later, I decided to change the pre-amp tube to a Electro Harmonix 12ax7, and again I was impressed. Very good match for this unit. I gave it a 3, because out of the box it deserves it. After changing the tube, I give it a 4 for the money. It was really easy to change, a few screws and swap it out, the tube was very inexpensive as well. If you need bang for the buck, I'd try this.
