The Summit TPA200B is a dual channel microphone preamp that is tube based and is made of all analog parts.  It has XLR connections in the back and also has 1/4 inch Hi-Z inputs for plugging your instrument directly into this.  This is indeed a rack mountable piece of gear and will take up two rack spaces.

UTILIZATION

The configuration of the Summit TPA200B is pretty basic as far as mic pres go as it has pretty much all standard parameters.  Each channel has knobs for input and output gain, and then has switches for either line or mic input, a pad that can be switched to either -15 db or -25 db and a phase switch.  There is also a switch for phantom power that will engage phantom power on both of the channels.  This is a pretty basic set up and I don't think that anyone who has experience with mic pres needs a manual or will have any trouble at all using this.


SOUND QUALITY

The sound of the mic pres on the Summit TPA200B are pretty incredible.  The clarity and depth that can be achieved with this is outstanding as this is one of the better mic pres that I have used outside of a console.  It is great two have two channels of such a high end pre in the same unit as it allows me to do some great stereo recordings within a single unit.  The pre accurately portrays the signal that you send to it and won't color it other than the natural sound that you give it.  This is definitely an overall top notch sounding microphone preamp that is as good as just about any that I have used before in its own way.


OVERALL OPINION

While the price of the Summit TPA200B is quite high, if you are looking for great tone without having to consider price, this is an excellent choice.  I believe that it is a great unit for just about anybody looking for a dual channel high end mic pre and understand that this is the price that you will pay for a great pre like this one.  If you are a home studio looking for a single unit that will help out your recording quality a great deal, the Summit TPA200B is a great investment and is something that should absolutely be tried out.
