Speck Electronics MicPre 5.0 Mic Preamp Details

The Speck Electronics MicPre 5.0 Mic Preamp is a complete single channel microphone preamp that offers features and flexibility for use in the most serious recording applications. The signal path consists of a matched discrete transistor front-end, premium IC's, and transformer output stage. With the push of a button, the MP5.0 can change from an "Transformer-Balanced" output to a "Active-Balanced" output. The compact 1/2 rack format of the MP5.0 can easily be rack mounted and combined with the Speck Model ASC equalizer to create a highly functional outboard channel strip. The MicPre 5.0 also includes a mix section that makes it perfect for DAW's and remote recording.

  • Mix Node: The mix section of the MicPre 5.0 provides a separate left/right mix out with level, pan and mute. With only a simple interface cable, this mix section, or "Mix Node" can be linked with any number of MP5.0's to form a fully integrated mix section. In many situations such as desktop or location recording, this expandable feature of the MP5.0 can eliminate the need for a separate audio mixer.
  • Flexible signal routing: The MP5.0 is more than a mic pre. It gives you a surprising number of signal routing alternatives. Just use your imagination when plugging up the MP5.0. Since the MP5.0 works with balanced or unbalanced gear, you will not be stuck looking for the proper cable or worrying about level compatibility between dissimilar gear.

Speck Electronics ASC-T 4 Band Equalizer w/ Transformer Details

The Speck Electronics ASC-T 4 Band Equalizer w/ Transformer is a professional single channel 4 band equalizer in a 1/2 rack format. It is simple...it is useful...and it delivers the high quality and specifications found in all Speck Electronics gear.

  • That Classic Sound - You'll hear none of the thinness and edginess experienced with some other outboard EQ devices. The Speck Model ASC is reminiscent of vintage equalizers, revered for their dynamic range and musical performance.
  • The Front Panel - This compact 4 band parametric equalizer has 12 controls for equalization adjustment that covers the audio spectrum from a low 20Hz all the way up to 25kHz. There is a - 12/+6 dB gain control that handles the level variations when patching between balanced and unbalanced gear. A bypass switch silently removes the equalizer from the audio path.
  • The Rear Panel - Connect the ASC to virtually any line level source: balanced, unbalanced, or mixer inserts. The Model ASC has high headroom that will handle balanced signals up to +28dBu.To enhance the classic EQ experience, the Model ASC offers balanced transformer and active balanced outputs. You are currently viewing the ASC-T which includes the transformer option. The Model ASC is best used with the MicPre 5.0 since the mic preamps already has the transformer output as standard.

What We Think

"The Speck Electronics MicPre 5.0 is a world-class, solid sounding, clean character microphone preamplifier that is revered by those who know it. If it were just a mic preamp, it would be a good value at it's price point. However, the fact that it features the ability to link up with other MicPre 5.0 units to create a small, portable mixer makes it even more of a great value. Plus match it up with one of the Speck Electronics ASC equalizers and you have a very powerful channel strip. The MicPre 5.0 is regularly found in the studios of voiceover talents, due to it's no-nonsense, rich sound. But I have had preferable results in the studio when using the MicPre 5.0 compared to some very well known go-to mic preamps. In fact, those celebrated preamps made for some annoyingly piercing hi-hat tracks where the Speck MicPre 5.0 beautifully took the energy of the hat and gave it back as the mic captured it. The hat now sits perfectly in the mix as is and I'm a happier engineer. If you're looking for tools that simply work and work well, then give us a call to pick up some gear from Speck Electronics."
