The ASP800 is a compact, 1U rackmount unit featuring eight ultrahigh-quality mic preamplifiers developed from the mic pre design used in the ASP8024 recording console.

The designed uses an 8-transistor discrete Class-A front end with extended bandwidth and a noise floor close to the theoretical Johnson limit. Carefully chosen close-tolerance components are used to achieve high CMRR at all gain settings, and distortion is minimized to less than 0.001% at 20dB gain and +10dBu output. Each mic amp also features switchable input impedance, allowing the user to explore the subtle variations in microphone character that are determined by output termination.

All channels include an XLR input, "soft start" 48V phantom power, switchable input impedance, 25 to 250Hz highpass filter and line input selection. Channels 1 and 2 also feature a -20dB attenuator and a high-impedance instrument/DI input on a front panel-mounted jack. LEDs provide indication of signal present and overload. A digital output option is available in addition to the standard balanced analog outputs.

Other features include optional ADAT, AES/EBU and S/PDIF outputs with selectable sample rate (44.1/48/88.2/96 kHz) and dither (16/20/24-bit).
