Analog preamp tube (12AX7 low voltage, I doubt very much that it brings), supplied with specific power supply.
Mono input jack + XLR outputs for the same.
Switches: limiter, attenuator, phantom and reverse phase.
Seen the light meter for saturation. (Diodes)
Compact, solid, very complete.

I take off a point for the stupid argument "lamp" which seems to me essentially commercial.

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use.
I found the manual clear, I'm just used to check what he endured as connectivity (both outputs can be used simultaneously, for example) and I quickly found the information I needed.

SOUND QUALITY

It remains a cheap preamp that goes well beyond, and I am very happy because I did not need more. The sound is ok, and the connection / setting impeccable, so we do what we want, and so far the machine seemed very reliable.
Point of his view: Clarity ok, S / N ratio ok, does its job, sturdy, not bulky.
My use: Repeats homestudio for microphones (vocals, guitar amp transplanted) or my electro-acoustic.
Another use that I found interesting with my Tonelab:
Guitar -> Tonelab Desktop -> MIC100 -> mixing desk and amp XLR jack return.
It is a versatile tool, correct, and good to have on hand.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought used in 2006 or 2007, it has not moved since.
Not really ... Apart compared with the MIC200, but I have not seen the interest instrument selector on this unit ... The only preamp enough.
I would do this choice without hesitation, as adapted to my needs.
