Awesome Tube Pre with Digital Output!The DPS II updates the newest ART advances in Tube Microphone Preamps. The DPS II adds continously variable in impedance, LED in meters, auto mic/instrument switching, OPL (Output Protection Limiting) flexibility and more tube richness to the DPS II.
Twin high performance discrete preamplifiers with local feedback are coupled with ART's flexible V3 (Variable Valve Voicing) 12AX7A gain stage (which delivers both flexibility and consistency in settings) and choice of analog and digital outs. The new enhanced microphone preamplifier can accept +20dB peaks while maintaining over 120dB dynamic range and incredibly low distortion. A LED in meter, monitors the signal level of the in amp.
The auto-switching Input allows the DPS II rear inputs to stay patched in while you use the front panel instrument ins. Enhancements to ART's mythical tube stage maintain their classic "warm sound" and add more tube voicings specifically tailored to vocal, guitar, bass, and acoustic instruments making this an incredible DI box. The enhanced OPL is available to control overshoots and normalize levels before digital clipping occurs .
An all-around insert loop on each channel offers access for more signal processing or direct access to our high quality A/D converter. Separate gain controls on analog and digital outs allow you to perfect the unit for simultaneous jobs.
Digital outs include S/PDIF, TOSlink or ADAT (front panel selectable). The A/D is front panel totally adjustable from 44.1 to 96K or syncs to ADAT or external word clock (32KHZ to 100KHz). You can patch into any ADAT stream and select which pair (or all) of channels the DPS II transmits.
The DPS II also features ART A-to-D digital conversion and ART Tube Technology similar to that of the ART DI/O Preamplifier System. This ensures that when you are going from the analog preamplification to digital, your signal will be as warm and musical as you decide it to be!
