Nice range of preset tones
Handy preamp that fits in your hand. Just about.
I previously had a similar (apart from the addition of a VU meter) though considerably more expensive model made by a competitor which, disappointingly, after minimal usage (over several years) developed noisy outputs and would have cost more to get someone to even look at it than it was to buy this one new.
The quality of the Behringer seems just as good as the more expensive one, it has pretty much identical features and the lack of VU meter makes no difference to functionality (as it has an led meter instead).
The only thing to remember is that it comes with a continental mains adapter so will need a plug converter and if you are thinking you probably have a mains adapter that will work with it anyway, you may well not as it requires a 9v 1300ma **AC** supply!
The MIC200 did not disappoint me the sound was crisp, so I fiddled with the knobs to check out what varying sounds can be found, I was surprised, ( I wish that the unit came with an instruction manual to speed up my use of the product. ).
I am not sure what is warm/limiter zones actually does, but in time will figure it out.
This unit appears that it can be used for vocals, guitar, bass, piano, keyboard etc etc. And also use a guitar and mic at the same time.
Oh the price of this product was need I say very good value for money at Thomann.
Most Cost Effective Preamp ever
The construction is very solid and it looks good in the studio.
The conectors are not the highest end, but they definitely are good quality.
The "Preamp Mode" selector have filters for every type of sound, and they sound great.
The best aspect in the pre-amp is that, it does not require a balanced signal input in order to output a balanced signal, this means that it can be used as a high quality studio Direct Injection Box.
I absolutely recomend this product over similar ones that cost four times the price.
