sE Electronics Dynamite DM1

The sE Electronics Dynamite DM1 is an active inline preamp intended to be inserted between a passive ribbon or dynamic microphone and a microphone preamplifier. Providing a robust +28dB of gain, the DM1 is the perfect way to boost the signal from a passive mic, reduce the likelihood of interference, and provide significantly improved level to your preamp – all without adding noise or coloration.

With a sophisticated class-A design and specially-selected high-grade FETs, the DM1 has the lowest self-noise in its class. Additionally, the gain it provides is always a consistent 28dB regardless of the connected load, thanks to its dedicated output buffer amplifier. Its output impedance is also the lowest in its class, allowing it to drive long cable runs while reducing susceptibility to RF interference, buzz and hum.

Reliable operation even in demanding on-stage applications in difficult environments is ensured by the roadworthy and slim all-metal design, robust construction, and high-quality manufacturing standards.

Application Note: For optimum results, it is highly recommended to plug the DM1 directly into the output of the microphone. If required, a cable can be used between the microphone and the DM1; the shorter the cable, the better the overall performance.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
