    Bom preamp!

    Art DPS IIPublished on 05/26/12 at 00:42
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Péampli tube 2 Channel 1U rack. The lamp has been changed by an ELECTRO-HARMONIX GOLD.

    Extensive connection: Analog and Digital.

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use even without instructions. But attetion to the symmetry of the buttons.
    I use it for vocals, guitar and bass.

    SOUND QUALITY

    This is my first amp, for what I do and I had the budget is more than enough.
    It warms the sound nicely.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a year and a half.
    Very good value for money
    I would do certainly this choice

    Hybrid transistor preamp and lamps with the technology of ART V3 as well as standard 24-bit/96kHz converters. You can set the grain of the preamp with a selector.
    Connectors XLR and Jack input and analog output. There is also an insert, but the converter is placed before and after the analog output -> so we can not monitor the insert if it does not pass through a PC. Digital output in ADAT, S / PDIF optical and coaxial as well as word clock input (nice!)

    UTILIZATION

    It has highly developed settings. Besides the gain, phantom power supply button and the button phase inversion, there is a setting of the input impedance (it plays on the color of the microphone), a button boost (+2…

Digital output in ADAT, S / PDIF optical and coaxial as well as word clock input (nice!)

    UTILIZATION

    It has highly developed settings. Besides the gain, phantom power supply button and the button phase inversion, there is a setting of the input impedance (it plays on the color of the microphone), a button boost (+20 dB) to approach the floor to study the saturation and therefore have this little grain if desired.
    It is compatible Adat 24/96, and it allows to copy an input signal and just replace two original channels of ADAT signal converted by the signals in the preamp.
    The manual is clear and explains how to configure the converter (the rest, no need for manual).

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound is purely amazing! Thanks to technology we can have a V3 largel range of sounds. I no longer use him in my home studio, both in direct box for my electric guitar for singing or making noise with my NT1-A.

    OVERALL OPINION

    A very versatile machine, perfect to start a home studio, keeping a maximum of sonic possibilities. I use it for several months and I do not regret at all, I plan to buy the same associated compressor (TCS I think ...)

    Transistor preamp with "warmer" sound per lamp (V3 technology, which in my opinion is useless ...).
    all input / output imaginable.

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use, basically there is just a gain and a volume ... What is a preamp.
    I put 9 because the knobs are symmetrical for both channels, and I it bothers me, I have repeatedly confused the two volume knobs and gain ...

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound is ok, but nothing more. I think the lamp is useless ... I bypass when I serve. For comparison, I have a TF pro, and it has nothing to do in terms of sound quality, because the dynamics of TF Pro is far superior. That said, for its price is very good, but do not expect the SPL o…

For comparison, I have a TF pro, and it has nothing to do in terms of sound quality, because the dynamics of TF Pro is far superior. That said, for its price is very good, but do not expect the SPL or AMEK ...
    I also have an M-Audio DMP3 which although also very good for its price (its very neutral) is slightly lower than DPSII in terms of dynamics.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought it because it is the only preamp with digital I / O in this price range.
    It's a Swiss Army knife of connectivity. It allows me to use two additional digital inputs of my Edirol UA-1000 S / PDIF to the frequency I want.
    I would have preferred a compressor or limiter in place of a lamp that is useless, but it's pretty good in the dark ...

    What technology is used?

    It uses technology V3, that is to say it's a transistor amp with a system of warming lamp (no use to me)

    - What are the effects or types of effects available?

    there is nothing more simple as the setting for a preamp, there is a knob allowing choisire what kind of tuning the preamp needs (voice, instrument ...)
    knob inversser by the aporia to his voice and a two (eg gain prop left on one and the two e it right) this is boring

    - What is the connection?

    enter: enter a jack / xlr for each voice (2 votes) on the same facade and deriere.

    output: output jack / xlr deriere for each voice.

    it is rack

    output: output jack / xlr deriere for each voice.

    it is rack

    UTILIZATION

    - The general configuration is it simple?

    preamps is perfect for this group that made concert and has almost no knowledge in the sound.

    - Publishing of sound effects or is it easy?

    a big knob used to deffinire what kind of a preamp will have s'atendre.

    - The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

    any ideas on what preamp lent me a faith I not read the manual, and there is no need

    SOUND QUALITY

    - The sound of your instruments or microphones is properly reproduced?

    yes the sound is correct but for a preamp to almost € 300 I saw mieu.

    The preamp is it clear or does it brings a stain?

    I is not identified its special coloring.

    OVERALL OPINION

    - How long have you use it?

    I used a day

    - What is so special that you like most and least?

    +: You plug the microphone is turned four and is all over knob
    -: The knob does not put her in the same order on both his voice confuses a can!

    - How would you rate the quality / price?

    for any additional € preamp was a lamp has a real market and it akai mieu ^ ^

    - With experience, you do again this choice? ...

    Personal I would not buy me one

    I would do without this choice hsiter.

    Two-channel tube preamp, (but I wonder if we should not rather be classified as hybrids in all the lights ... in short) 1U rackmount with a setting for each channel gain from 0dB to 48dB and a boost of 20dB, a level of impedance from 150 ohms to 3 kOhm, an adjustable output level, a phantom power, phase reverse and 16 voicing lamp. It has analog outputs, but also to digital S / PDIF or ADAT in coax or optical (optical adat, and you can choose your output torque among the 8 format, coax or optical S / PDIF )

    No pad or low-cut.

    No pad or low-cut.

    UTILIZATION

    The config is simple yes, when you get to have the symmetry of the buttons, I bought used and no manual, I do not need to use it, make the I turn and uses optical S / PDIF without too much hassle having to synchronize at all for the preamp and my card. (But I'm not a novice in this area, but once you know what a clock, a master and a slave, a resolution and a sampling frequency roll my chicken.)

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound mouais bof bof. It's better than some entry-level table (Berhinger yamaha alto and co) and some sound card, but not all good TFW for sound cards. I wonder if the preamp of my FA-101 are of similar quality (although a grain quite different).

    The overall sound is a bit rikiki, especially compared to my or my SPL Goldmike Quad Mic RME, it lacks some dynamics, transients sounded a bit "dirty" etc ... m'enfin rédibitoire nothing either. The voicing typed bass or guitar hurt my ears because they amplify the treble crudely, the preset keyboard and piano sound a little metallic and nasal, well, it remains the preset "Voice" and especially the Flat I will not leave not soon ... The color of lamp is a little overrated, there is heat if you like, then there are mostly lower midrange actually, but it lacks a lot of precision, responsiveness and smoothness.

    If you buy it new ... Yeah good save 100 € more to offer you a Glodmike Mk1 is the day and night.
    I bought it used € 130, I think it's more the price for this preamp, ADCs are not too bad but good, not ecstatic either. We will say that I am a bargain considering this conversion stage.

    OVERALL OPINION

    We feel that this preamp is the top of a mark a little "discount", and not the bottom of a quality mark. In nine, there are just 100 € with a difference SPL Goldmike and frankly it is far above the ART.
    I took this preamp to take advantage of two digital S / PDIF to my sound card when I have to save more than 10 simultaneous sources. I think I would use most frequently online for the keyboard to output line bass amplifier for example, limit a tom drum that would not have its channel ...

    For 130 € I am totally satisfied, for the price of nine I was pretty disappointed ...
