Buzz Audio MA-2.2
2-channel Microphone Preamp
The MA-2.2 represents the pinnacle of the Buzz Audio Class A technology and provides ultra clean (but not clinical sounding) amplification from all microphone types. Due to it's near perfect retrevial of transient information, the MA-2.2 is considered by many to be an excellent preamplifier for recording acoustic guitar. The MA-2.2 is extremely musical in character and is ideal for recording all acoustic sources where a non-coloured sound is desired - voice, drums, percussion, piano, orchestras and choirs.
The MA-2.2 has been designed by active recording engineers to provide the cleanest possible interface between microphones and recording channels. By utilising our own True Class A amplifier modules (the BE40), attention to power supply design and a resistor loaded C-Coupled input topology, this preamplifier exhibits sonic qualities unique in it's class.
The MA-2.2's ultra low noise and noise spectra provides the best possible dynamic range for digital recordings. The high speed and wide frequency response ensures distortionless reproduction of transients and excellent high frequency phase response - even at high gain. Users can expect a clean, uncluttered midrange coupled with superb treble clarity and extended tight bass response.
As standard the MA-2.2 has an unbalanced output, avoiding the extra stage required for this function to keep the signal path as simple as possible. The unit can however be supplied or retrofitted with high spec Lundahl output transformers. When the transformers are fitted, the direct unbalanced output is still available on the rear panel via a 1/4" jack socket.
