SM Pro PR8E 8 channel mic preamp. Balanced XLR/combo Inputs and TRS Outputs. 48V Phantom Power per channel. Phase Reverse per channel.
Pretty basic unit. No color to the sound and the unit is quiet even with the gain cranked. Works great.
Here's a clip of an acoustic guitar with couple of CAD CM 217's:
Edit: Spent a little more time with the PR8E. The PR8E attenuates to 0dB and not to -?dB. This is kind of a problem with loud sources. I was micing a loud guitar cab with a condensor mic. With the pot on zero the level was still a little too hot. Bummer, but easily solved with some mic pads/attenuators.
