Intip's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Perfect for the price"

M-Audio DMP3
We already know its characteristics but may be added that it has a nice finish, very neat, the box is all metal and the knobs seem to me strong.


Configuration, highly intuitive, is the simplest in the world. No need for manual ...
Editing sounds great! Not too much wind, no noise.


I plug my guitar on this little preamp 'and often a microphone. For guitar and voice it gives a really cool very warm side. This will work a little his own ... I love her for everything acoustic instruments as the M-Audio DMP3 brings out the color I want out.

Although the sound is not properly reproduced, but that is precisely why any musician looking. For the micro is the same, here can give some really nice shades. It really brings color, it is not transparent, but I like that!
I compared it with other (Presonus Blue Tube, Behringer ultragain, Sansom C-Valve) but I think the heat and the sound of M-Audio DMP3 more beautiful.


I use it for almost 3 years and after trying other preamps (Presonus Blue Tube, Behringer Ultragain, Sansom C-Valve), I think I finally found what suits me perfectly.
Value / excellent price. It is clear that with the experience and the same budget, I would do the same choice.

They are already known.


Very simple to use


Quality just okay ...


This is my first preamp. The backlight of the meter has blown two months after the acquisition. After two years of occasional use, it generates a slight background noise makes it unusable recording condition.

revola's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

M-Audio DMP3
Preamp analog transistors.
2 XLR / jack with gain per input and input level meter by
For each entry, a phase inverter, a low-cut filter and a "gain boost" to adjust the gain to a low input (or to deliberately overload the input).
Look fabulous with both VU meters "old" informed ...


Simple and yet complete. The low-cut filter and phase reverse are sometimes quite useful.
In contrast, the gain knobs are too vague because not graduated or notched. Consequence: when I have the sound with an instrument, I no longer touches the knob before making any decision of this instrument ...
A little less so, but overall it's very simple and very practical.


The sound is excellent! For the record, it's perfect. It does not add to its particular color, but that's what I ask. It allows me to record all types of instruments / voices.
He embellishes the sound without distorting it. Much better than any preamp with a mixer.
Maybe a little blow when you push the gain, but nothing that is really annoying, even taken for definitive album.


For the price it is excellent!
I used the preamp until a small table Beringher 4 tracks (as can be done ...), but I could not get a "real" sound, with all the dynamics and precision that I wanted. It took me try this preamp for what was missing.
I tested it with a studio microphone Beringher B2 and guitar Gibson Les Paul. In both cases, the rendering was both faithful to the source both beautified.
No complaints. I buy when I have the money to ...
