The Auteur MKII is the second generation Auteur with lush preamps that capture every detail of your signal. It offers ultra-fast input stages, 65dB gain, a frequency response wider than its predecessor's, and lower noise/distortion levels. Plus it delivers all the great features of the original: dual channel functionality, 48V switchable phantom power on each channel, phase switching, and a 10dBu pad option for both channels, as well. The Auteur MKII has XLR in and TRS out on Ch. 1 and Ch. 2, and it's wrapped in a 1U, 1/2 rack housing.
