ultra fast response bring super natural sound
Ultra flat frequencey response and fastest response of nanosecond
Unparalleled sound with ultra fast transient
Recording technology never stops evolving, however it is impossible to restore the missing parts lost at the input stage. There are so many wonderful mic preamps in the market; some have tasty vintage tone, others with specific characters and so on. Nevertheless, even these high-end preamps are not able to reproduce the transient response of strings and percussion instruments, harmonics that musicians feel when playing their instruments. We know that you have experienced problems before; adding more tracks on the mix makes the sound saturated at specific frequencies, or even a little bit of gain up causes remarkable noises.
Technologies behind the SP-MP500
The gain selector with fixed resistors, feedback resistors, and other components equipped with SP-MP series are striictly chosen and the number of components used are about 30% of those for convetnioanl mic preamp. Each component is linked to high-speed transient characteristics that capture the performer's expression of dynamics from pianissimo to fortissimo, without missing the rise of the sound or muddying the reverberations, as well as frequency characteristics that convey transparency from ultra-low frequencies to overtones.
This is linked to a frequency response that transparently conveys the dynamics of the performer from ultra-low frequencies to overtones. In addition, this model uses Muse capacitors, which have an established reputation in the audio
The SP-MP500 is now available in the 500 Series format, which can be freely configured to suit the application. The SP-MP500 can be easily expanded from 1 to 2 channels, 4 channels, and so on, depending on the operating environment.

3dB step gain selector with fixed resistors
Fixed resistors are used for gain control for better sound quality. Ultra pure gain is available without any loss.
SP-MP500 provides up to +66dB gain and can be used with most of professional microphones. Because of its ultra natural amplification, you would be able to utilize tone characters of tube mic and ribbon mic

To keep signal uncolored
For extraordinary, transparent sound, the number of parts used in the preamp should be kept as small as possible. SP-MP500 uses less than 1/3 of components compared to standard preamps. SP-MP500 utilizes only finest components such as feedback resisters that are more expensive than standard tip resistors. We strictly pay a closest attention on every tiny detail to keep signal uncolored.
Capacitor by MUSE best for audio are used
Gain selectors with fixed resistors for each gain settiings are used for audio quality in stead of potentiometers which degrades sound.

SP-MP SERIES USER STORIES
Recording Engineer/ Grammy Winner
The sound is absolutely transparent and it is the kind of pre-amp you’d use when you want no coloration and you want to hear EXACTLY what comes in, without any kind of alteration of the sound, without any added sonic characteristics, basically the TRUE sound that is being picked up by your microphones
Recording Engineer/ Producer / Grammy Winner
My initial impression was a very good one. The sound is clean, clear and transparent, but with a nice punch. It’s a welcome addition to the world of first-class microphone preamps.
