Mackie recently introduced a new rackmount mic preamp, the Onyx 800R. Benefiting from the same premium mic pre developed for the new small-format Onyx mixers, the 8-channel 800R is suitable for professional and project studios seeking a mic preamp with 192kHz digital output, engineer needing additional, high-quality mic inputs for analog or digital mixing consoles.

The Onyx 800R features low-noise circuitry based on the legendary XDR mic pre found in Mackie’s compact mixers. The 1U rackmount Onyx 800R features simultaneous analog and 24-bit/192kHz digital connectivity via ADAT Lightpipe, AES/EBU and S/PDIF to work with both analog and digital systems. The front panel provides easy access to features such as selectable mic/line inputs per channel, and two instrument input jacks, replacing the need for an outboard DI box.

The Mackie Onyx 800R will begin shipping in Q2, 2004.
