Well I'm glad it's here but the ergnomics are puzzling at best.

What's the second knob from the left? The one that says MPI and has all the L's? I'm guessing that its in the vein of Neve 1073, etc. eq's? I don't think the ergonomics are wierd, it looks like an EQ to me! I'm also guessing that the first know on the left is a HPF? Looks cool!

Yeah, I am the guy. But my second post never made it for some reason, where I asked Jon what it was he was seeing about the ergonomics.

I wondered if it was a little to cryptic in the notation.

The input control has MPI, which stands for Mic Pre Input, since this thing is designed to be a companion to the MP-xNV mic pre, this is how it is selected as the input device. The other settings are various line level sensitivities, L+8 meaning Line level, +8dbm nominal level.

The rest should be fairly clear.

Oh yeah, the first knob on the left is hi-pass, 3rd order.

How much? How soon? Will there be a two channel version?
I have a couple of MP-2NV's and would love to pair up the matching e.q. Looks great!

To me, the ergonomics seem fine. I'm guessing it's the same size as the ME-1NV preamp?

When is it going to be available and how much?

Regards,
Magnus

I think my perception was skewed a bit by the fact that some labeling is obscured by the camera angle. I would suggest changing panel graphics just a tad, though- to clarify the demarcation between EQ sections. Maybe push those bracketing vertical lines up a bit....?

Pricing info much appreciated....

Looks cool, notice that the frequency settings are based on E12 resistor values - is there a reason for this Dan ?

Don't quote me on this but I'm pretty sure

A. That's not plastic
B. It's probably quality construction with quality components

By the same token you can say ugly (by audio civialian standards) neve gear "looks cheap."

Oh, yeah, the details.

Well the picture is the last pre-production prototype, real parts start arriving in MN in Oct, early Nov, shipping before Xmas.

Price? Still working on it, but will be a bit more than the preamp, but not stunningly so. Can't be more precise than that now.

It won't slam you though...

Actually, single channel EQ, a little more than a single channel NV pre, two channel EQ, a little more than the two channel mic pre.

We'll my MP-2 isn't exactly a beauty queen but I've forgiven its looks because it sounds so damn good.

Even though I agree with you, apparently some people first judge their audio equipment not by how it sounds, but what it looks like (and, apparently, what ASSUMED material it's made from). Is this synesthesia, "style over substance" or head-up-ass?

Given Dan's persistent tendency for high-class design, workmanship and groovy sonics, why should we give a rat's ass what it looks like as long as it sounds good, is reliable, works well, last a long time, and gets the engineering staff more dates...

P.S. - Apparently, its chassis is made from CR steel and aluminum, with "real" inductor-based filters inside!

Yeah, but the MP2NV looks COOLER than the MP-2 in my subjective opinion.

I think it looks great, and I have to imagine it sounds better. I do miss that Neve/RAF blue, though - I wish I had gotten one of those pre's when they came out.
