Yamaha MLA8 Preamp

Microphone PreampThe microphone preamplifiers from Yamaha's renowned DM2000 digital console have already been noticed by many professional audio engineers from all possible areas. The circuits of MLA8 are based on the same technology. They have a great sound quality and a transparent and absolutely accurate playback of the original signal.

Despite their space-saving dimensions of 1 U the user interface of the ML8A has 26-dB pads, a wide controllable range of 44 dB gain (potentiometers), high-pass filters with a cutoff frequency at 80 Hz and phantom power switches for each channel. The high pass filter is still in the analogue part of the device. Therefore, the tone control of the MLA8 provides a particularly simple usability, even in combination with Yamaha digital mixers, the DME 24N and 64N. In addition, the system can be easily expanded. Simply combine several MLA8 units, digital mixers and DMEs to create your perfect production environment.

The colour scheme of Yamaha mixers follows very useful rules. Like the consoles the MLA8 also uses green for signal indicators and HPF, red for peak indicators, and gray for attenuation pads. In systems where our microphone preamps are combined with other Yamaha products, the ability to read the function of the controls with a single look ensures that the production environment is understood quickly, intuitively and without errors.

yamaha MLA8
10.03.2014
Yamaha MLA8, I've been really happy with this device. The properties are diverse and adequate. One of the most important is probably ominaisuusksia per channel phantom power, which enables the use Condenser Microphone microphone and tape simultaneously.
Soundwise yamaha MLA8 is fairly neutral. Transients are repeated quite closely, but would miss the drums while recording sound a little aggression.
Externally, the product is really a high-quality feel to it with tough pots and other switches. Probably the biggest minus is equipped with Yamaha's own line outs connectors XLR connectors instead. Connectors seem that the permanent installations for sure, but if you keep the connectors and ports often connect I do not think they were terribly long-lived. Those same connectors must have shunned many buyers and loppuliseen influence the purchasing decision, when there is no traditional-looking XLR connectors. Comes with a screwdriver, however, easily switchable wire into the counter-element connectors.
The price / quality ratio is yes in relation to this product place, an advantage effect on the quality and number of channels I think this product is very expensive.

Very convenient!

Ideal for simple, fast connection via D-Sub to a digital console or an external converter unit. Blades does this preamp clear and neutral. LED displays for activated pad and high-pass switches would be desirable for a better overview, but are to be attended to with regard to the price. Only the sliding switch for the phantom power is a bit fiddly, as it is sunk in the housing. With fingernails it goes however.
