Radial Engineering McBoost Microphone Signal Intensifier DI Direct Box
The McBoost from Radial is a high-quality microphone signal booster designed to elevate an output signal of a dynamic microphone or low-output ribbon mic and bring it up to a usable level for mixing consoles and preamps. It can be used for applications such as recording, broadcast TV, rehearsals, live stage, and more.
The 100% discrete Class-A design features a dual-transistor JFET circuit that produces up to 25 dB of gain via a 48V phantom power source without introducing noise, color, or artifacts. Measuring each individual transistor carefully, which is batch-sorted to certify performance, the circuit board is then placed into a 14-gauge reinforced steel enclosure to protect it from outside stresses.
Using standard 3-pin XLRs, the McBoost features three impedance settings to optimize the response. Finally, the McBoost will elevate the output to produce added clarity, excitement, and drive for long cables, whether you're in a recording studio, on a live stage, or in a broadcast center.
