Product Description

This premium tube mic/line preamp features an integrated limiter for studio, live and hard disk recording applications. It features a carefully-selected 12AX7 vacuum tube with Behringer's UTC technology for exceptional warmth and lowest noise. Using the MIC100 is a great way to eliminate the "dull" sound of standard digital recorders & sound cards. Also, it perfectly complements studio-grade condenser mics. When used as a high-end DI-box, it ensures outstanding signal integrity. Features also include a phase reverse switch, +48 V phantom power, a 20 dB pad, and balanced I/O.

The heart of the Tube Untragain is an extremely low-noise microphone preamp circuitry that uses discrete components and produces a highly trans-parent sound. In combination with Behringer's tube technology, the operational amplifiers 4580 and a sophisticated circuit topology, the Tube Untragain yields excellent noise and distortion properties. The innovative UTC circuitry that has been developed by Behringer's engineering team offers an abundance of sound-shaping possibilities. Absolute musicality was Behringer's major goal when they designed the Tube Untragain. The result is a device that, thanks to its tube circuitry, lends an incredible punch to percussion instruments. On the other hand, instruments that are rich in upper harmonics will receive more transparency. The sound will be warm, detailed and brilliant. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Behringer products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (67 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Behringer MIC100 is a professional quality mic processor for little money."
Sound: Amazing little instrument. I bought this because I needed a quick way to connect my shock mounted voice mic to a sound card that didn't provide the 48V phantom power needed to run the mic. What I got was incredibly enhanced sound that really extended the feature set of my mic system. The warm tones and clean sound alone, make this a great piece of equipment for the money. Feature: I really like the features of this little device. I can use it with or without the 48V phantom power for my mic, simply by pressing the button. It has a button for 20db boost, and I really like the mechanical (analog) control it gives me outside of my computer sound setup. No mouse needed to set the gain or output. Quality: Outstanding quality, build, fit, and finish. Value: I would say it's well worth the money. I actually paid list because I needed it, and it's well worth the money. Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed the support yet. The Wow Factor: It's not something you might think you want until you have it. It's not a sexy product by looks or specs, but by sound, you can't beat it! Overall: Don't see trading it, but I might buy more of them.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Worth the low low PRICE!!!!"
Sound: Clear sounding, No real coloring to the sound which is what its suposed to do. I own a Tube MP(ART). This sounds the exact same. Feature: More features than my Tube MP. I assume that Behringer Copied the design very closely. As with most low priced gear its componats could use some upgrading(better tube, ect ect). but these can be done by local shops. Quality: Good Build, Behringer makes a good product that keeps working and is tough as nails. Value: Very Very good value, I plan to get another. Manufacturer Support: Five here since I have never in my 5 years of using behringer products had to contact them for support. The Wow Factor: I like the case and the vibe of it. The Chicken head knobs give it a retro vibe. Overall: I cant realy say how long I would stay satifyed with anything as I like to use multiple brands of simular things as they all sound diferent. So I will say its a good piece that will stay in my collection. As we can see some people dont know how to use something as simple as a Mic pre. DOnt listen to their ignorant ramblings. This realy is a great product for a dirt cheap price.
