Neumann introduces the V 402

The V 402 from Neumann.Berlin is a microphone preamplifier with integrated headphone monitoring. It is a dual-channel mic preamp designed to maintain the sonic integrity of the original signal. Its transformer-less circuitry amplifies the microphone signal without unwanted colouration or sonic artefacts, such as noise and distortion. While this is also often claimed for simple preamps such as those in audio interfaces, Neumann.Berlin believes the V 402 is built to much higher standards.

The mic preamp is equipped with a studio-grade headphone amplifier to reportedly ensuring uncompromised monitoring quality at the recording stage. Independent volume controls for each channel allow users to dial in a latency-free monitoring mix without affecting the recorded signal. The manufacturer has also designed the DI input for sonic purity. Its high-impedance input stage is said to capture the sound of electric guitars and basses as well as other instruments with no loss of detail and free from audible noise.

The switchable high-pass removes rumble and pops without signal degradation. A 20dB pad allows the V 402 to be used with high-level sources up to 28dBu without distortion. The mic preamp comes in a 2U rack enclosure measuring 89mm x 483mm x 242mm.
