Overview

Do digital right.

The ART DPS II Stereo Tube Preamp with Digital Out is a high-quality performer. It has continuously variable input impedance, LED input meters, auto mic/instrument switching, OPL (Output Protection Limiting) flexibility, and more tube warmth. Designed with twin discrete preamplifiers and a flexible V3 (Variable Valve Voicing) 12AX7A gain stage plus analog and digital outputs.

Preamp accepts +20dB peaks while maintaining over 120dB dynamic range and incredibly low distortion. The LED input meter monitors the signal level of the input amplifier.

The auto-switching input allows the DPS II rear inputs to stay patched in while you use the front panel instrument inputs.

It also adds additional tube voicings specifically tailored to vocal, guitar, bass, and acoustic instruments, making this an incredible DI box. The enhanced OPL is available to control overshoots and normalize levels before digital clipping occurs.

A versatile insert loop on each channel provides access for additional signal processing or direct access to a high-quality A/D converter. Separate gain controls on analog and digital outputs allow you to optimize the unit for simultaneous applications. Digital outputs include S/PDIF, TOSLINK, and ADAT (front panel selectable). The A/D converter is front panel adjustable from 44.1 to 96K or syncs to ADAT or external word clock (32kHz to 100kHz). You can patch into any ADAT stream and select which pair (or all) of channels the DPS II transmits.
