McCormack Micro Line Drive MLD Stereo Preamplifier. Condition is "Used". Audio from active inputs work fine but the RIGHT channel in passive mode ‘disappears’. Rather than have it repaired, selling at discounted price. Otherwise, a great preamp. So much so, I’m upgrading to another McCormack.
McCormack Micro Line Drive preamp. An audiophile favorite for its transparency in both passive and active form. Dual mono volume controls. Includes it's outboard power supply. This unit is in good and highly serviceable
cosmetic and operational shape.
The MLD is a passive preamp sporting three line-level inputs, and
two high-quality volume pots on the right and left channels.
The MLD can be used in a passive (bypass) mode, where the unit can Description:
be totally unpowered. It can of course also be used in a traditional powered
(active). Near perfect condition.
