The JDK Audio R20 is a dual channel, high quality microphone preamp, designed from the ground up by API's design team to offer a versatile high quality input for microphones.
Each channel features both a mic and an instrument input, with switched phantom power, phase, and pad. Metering is traditional analog VU.
The MP-R20 provides 2 channels of premium analog microphone pre-amplification designed to provide a low noise, solid front end for all audio applications. Meticulously detailed and solidly constructed, the R20 features custom analog VU meters and hands-on analog control of the gain level. Individual toggle switches control the selection of 48v, polarity, pad and a mic/instrument switch.
JDK Audio is an entirely new brand developed and engineered by API (Automated Processes, Inc.). And, while API's audio products are benchmarks of the recording world, we decided to embark on a product line that would allow us offer some new ideas and new tools to the audio community.
JDK Audio products feature robust design standards in solid, reliable package. The audio quality, the integrity of the components and the build construction all combine to provide years of great sounding analog audio performance - at a surprisingly affordable price.
