Reviews and Problems with Behringer ULTRAGAIN PRO MIC2200
Showing 1-10 of 24
Clean cheap pre-amp with potential
6 October 2013
Summary: Nice pre-amp / with phantom voltage as well. I replaced an Art Tube preamp with the MIC2200 after facing unstable and distorted audio at times along with occasional RF. MIC2200 has been stable, clean and RF free.
Summary: Even though the 12ax7 is a good tube, you will want to change this out for a JAN Philips 5751 Black Sable. It will compare to Pre Amps that cost 2K+. But changing the tube out is no easy task. I did it but it wasn't easy.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Powerful, Professional Functions, Versatile, Warmth
Summary: The left and right stereo channels are not sonically matched, i.e. the two channels have slightly different audio qualities. I suspect that this is a result of variations in component values that are inherent in electronics tolerance margins at this price (usually ±10%).
Summary: The noise level is very low and the tubes provide a very smooth silky response. Excellent preamp especially on our PPA R-One ribbon mic. The preamp has plenty of gain for the ribbon. It works equally well on the U87. Great features, like the variable roll off and parametric EQ.
Summary: Great pre amp for the price. Like many Berhinger products, it has a large selection of settings and the switchable parametric EQ is very cool. I was however a little disappointed that the tube is lit by LEDs rather than by the tube itself; a bit tacky
Summary: I originally bought a Rode NT-1 microphone and the AVID M-Box Mini for connection to my digital audio workstation (DAW). Maybe I chose my components poorly, but the AVID M-Box Mini didn't seem to have the guts to properly drive the signals from the Rode microphone. It could be an impedance mismatch.
