Manley TNT 2 Channel Microphone Preamplifer
Manley TNT(Tubes – No Tubes) is a 2-channel microphone preamplifier. Both channels are designed around the basic goal of "just plug a mic in and it sounds great." The tube channel excels on traditionally difficult sources like some bright guitars, reed and brass, cymbals and some vocals. The "No Tubes" channel might be more suited for smoother vocals, drums, bass and raunchy guitars, but you never really knows which preamp is best for the job at hand until you try them. At least you'll have two qualified candidates in one handy 1U chassis.
The Manley TNT is a new concept in microphone preamplification for those who don't always need stereo everything but often need choices and often need the best. Besides, you probably have a number of typical stereo preamps and are still looking for that one killer preamp.
Phantom power is soft-switched and shunt regulated for lowest noise
LED overload and level indicators
Six low noise shunt regulators, and five standard regulators in the solid-state side
When High-pass filter is bypassed, the preamp is designed to have almost DC response (.01Hz) at all gain settings.
LED meter indicates first and second stage clipping
Output is capable of greater than +30 dBu (70 volts peak to peak into 50 ohms from the solid-state side
Both the current mode and voltage mode preamps sport EIN numbers of 130dB, very close to the theoretical minimum noise possible
