Buzz Audio MIA1.0 – No Longer Available

Direct box - musical instrument adaptor

Product Description

The Buzz Audio MIA-1.0 musical instrument adaptor (traditionally called a direct box) was initially designed to compliment the MA-2.2 microphone amplifier, converting unbalanced instrument inputs into a balanced mic level signals.  This is achieved with a simple FET input, balanced output buffer amplifier.  There are no transformers in the audio path, ground isolation is achieved by the use of a transformer in the hi-frequency power supply that converts the phantom power to the nominal 12V operating voltage. 

The MIA-1.0 can of course be used with any mic preamp equipped with +48V phantom power (8mA).  Users can expect smoother bass performance and excellent treble reproduction without the phase shift anomalies inherent in standard transformer coupled designs.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
