A Designs Audio has announced its MP-2r pure tube-in/out, high-gain stereo microphone preamplifier.

The MP-2r all-tube mic pre has a gain of 60 dB and uses a zero-feedback loop design, employing a combination of custom-wound input and output balanced transformers, Jensen transformers and high-end tubes. The front panel includes independent polarity, phantom power, level controls and large backlit VU meters. Also included is a Neutrik Combo XLR 1/4-inch connector, which can be used as a direct-in for instruments.

MSRP for the MP-2r is $1,899 and is already shipping.

In other company news, A Designs also introduced ATTY, an in-line level controller for mono/stereo audio signals that is intended to obtain more control over powered desktop speakers and amplified units that do not offer an output control.

ATTY has two Neutrik combo input jacks (1/4-inch XLRs) for true stereo and two balanced output XLRs. There is a level control knob and a "panic button," which can act as a mute switch that shorts the signal until full control is regained. ATTY is small and compact (2x3x5 inches) and weights 2.5 pounds. MSRP is $95 and will begin shipping next month.
